I had my surgery 12 weeks ago.

My bmi was 33

My starting weight was 200 pounds/90 kilo

In 12 weeks I lost 50 pounds I know its allot. I count my calories I eat 1000 calories per a day

I do 30 minutes Stationary bike 6 Times a week

I would like to loose 20 more pounds.

I hit a stoll this week.

Will I get to loose my 20 pound in this next few month?

My friend is worried that I will not be able to stop the weight loss.

I think the body knows when to stop.

I am worried That my stoll will last forever..

I did the surgery out of my country therefore I can't contact my doctor.

stalls are common. Just keep following your program. If more than a month or six weeks go by with no weight loss, you can always lose more by cutting calories - if you're willing to do that. You and your body may or may not be comfortable eating less than 1000 calories a day, and that's fine.

weight loss does slow down a lot the closer you get to a normal BMI. I'm trying to lose 10 lbs now, but it's REALLY hard. But then, there are only so many calories I can cut (about 200 is all). When I weighed over 300 lbs, I could cut 1000 calories a day and lose weight pretty quickly. Right now, it takes about 1600 calories for me to maintain my current weight. If I cut 1000 calories NOW, I'd only be eating 600 calories/day. That is not sustainable. Even cutting 200 cal/day is challenging, but at least it's do-able. But that also means that my weight loss is going to be very slow....only 2-3 lbs a month.

as far as losing too much weight, you can always increase your calories a bit to stop the loss. So unless there's some medical problem that's causing the weight loss, you have control over whether you stop the loss or keep losing.

      WOW by the Grace of God 17 years ago I went to Mexico and had a lap band put on for weight loss and my waist was 64 inches and That’s more than 5 foot around and 18 stone  my weight was 375 pounds. Today I went shopping for not sweats and I succeeded. I found pants and a shirt at an awesome price at Burlington by the way. But the real story here is, today. My waist is 45 inches and my weight is 260. Both incredible numbers but think about this. My waist is almost 20 inches smaller around Wow that’s a brain wrecker.  Still, I love my band  I even celebrate it’s birthday 10-26-06 FYI-it’s kind of like choking yourself, and never letting go. And trying to eat. lol Life is good

      Hi all! I’m Heidi, a Canadian ex-Pat living in Sydney, Australia. I’m doing this surgery because my mom died 10 years ago from obesity, she lived her own 600lbs life.  So at 116kg, it’s time to make sure my daughters don’t lose their mom to obesity.

      Drinking my favorite Premier Protein Shake for breakfast, and planned a nice healthy lunch today. Protein first, Veg second, then fruit, and carbs last.  💪
