4 months post op... loss slowing



Recommended Posts

Just wondering i anyone noticed a big decrease in their loss at this point? I lost quite quickly in the begining, but now have slowed to about a pound a week. Im know this isnt' a race, and Im still grateful for loosing, but I was just looking for your experience and any tips you guys might have! Thanks:)

You've done really well and have lost double what I've lost!!

My loss has slowed to a pound a week too - and my surgeon is more than happy with that - in fact they say between 4lb and 7lb a month is a good loss and that any faster than that and you risk excess skin.

I'd rather lose it slow and steady than drop very quickly and have to deal with excess skin!

I am 4 months post op as well and my total weight loss is 19lbs. That gets me discouraged at times but I try to stay positive. I had my second fill 2 1/2 weeks ago and have not lost anything since then. I have no restriction at all... it's weird, I almost wish I wouldn't have got the second fill because I was losing with the first one. I am going to call the doctor tomorrow because it doesn't make sense.

I am 5 months post op today, and my weight loss has slowed dramatically. I don't go back to the doctor until Dec. 11, so I will make sure to talk with him about why he thinks I've slowed down. Some days I'm so tight I can barely eat anything, yet on other days, I'm so hungry I want to eat everything!

Just saying that I'm in the same boat as you! I'm not discouraged, just a bit puzzled!

      I have no clue where to upload this, so I'll put it here. This is pre-op vs the morning of my 6 month appointment! In office I weight 232, that's 88 lbs down since my highest weight, 75 lbs since my surgery weight! I can't believe this jacket fit... I am smaller now than the last time I was this size which the surgeon found really amusing. He's happy with where I am in my weight loss and estimates I'll be around 200 lbs by my 1 year anniversary! My lowest weight as an adult is 195, so that's pretty damn exciting to think I'll be near that at a year. Everything from there will be unknown territory!!

      I changed my profile image to a molecule of protein. Why? Because I am certain that it saved my life.

        That's brilliant! You've done amazing!! I should probably think about changing my profile picture at some point. Mine is the doll from Squid Games. Ironically the whole premise of the show is about dodging death. We've both done that...

      Two years out. Lost 120 , regained 5 lbs. Recently has a bout of Norovirus, lost 7 pounds in two days. Now my stomach feels like it did right after my surgery. Sore, sensitive to even water.  Anyone out there have a similar experience?
