8lbs in a month



Recommended Posts

Hi everyone, Its been a month almost 2 more days for it to be official. Anyway so I've lost 8lbs, and I want to be excited because it is a loss, but it seems low. I know i'm not restricted yet, and I've been on solid foods for a bout a week. I'm not having any problems with any foods, and I'm eating alot less then I did before. I've been walking for a hour a few days a week, when I can. Although my portions are smaller I'm just as hungry and have been since about 2 weeks in. Is 8lbs normal amount to lose? does this mean it may not actually work for me? Is there anyone that got fills and it just didn't work for them, I'm afraid since the weight isn't really coming off. Any advise will be greatly appriciated.

My surgery was one day before yours. I just came back from my first fill. In the 4 weeks it's been since I've seen the Dr. I've lost only TWO pounds. You have lost 8. Normal, healthy weight loss is 1-2 pounds per week. You are right on track. Keep up the good work.

1-2 lbs a week is what you can expect to lose. You're at the top end of that. Don't expect to lose faster.

I know it's frustrating -- you want to be thin NOW, but those pounds add up over time. Trust me, if you try to lose faster by getting too tight or eating too little you'll end up causing more problems.

You're doing great!!
