How much did you lose the first month?

I am a few weeks away from surgery and I am curious how much weight you lost your first month after surgery.

I lost 18 pounds the 1st month. I was hoping it would have been more but I lost 19 pounds the 2 months before my surgery. I started my 3 week stall after week 3. But remember, everyone is different & we all lose at different rates. Any weight loss you have will be great. Good luck!

Thanks!  I have a wedding to go to in June and I was "dreaming" of what my size might be.  :o)

30.something but it has slowed down a lot since then. I lost 9.4 before and 16.something the 2nd month and absolutely nothing the 3rd month so far. That first month was my favorite :)

I am 24 days out and have lost 55lbs.  20 of that was preop diet, 35lbs is since surgery.  I also started out at a high weight.  I think you lose about 10% the first month. the (almost) daily journey after VSG

I lost just about, but not quite 10% of my total body weight the first month. I weighed 243 on surgery day and lost 23.something the first month out. I had already lost 23 during my pre op dieting, so I was totally happy with that number.

My NUT told me to take each food stage and extend it a few days to really help jump start the weight loss. I lost 14 lbs pre op and was sleeved on 2/17 and lost another 11 lbs. Stay focused and walk a lot!!

I am 54 years old - 5 ft. 8 in - starting weight on surgery day was 305 and today is my one month surgiversary. I have lost 26 lbs this past month.  I hit an early stall - starting at day 8 (thought I was going to lose my mind!) and didn't lose anything for close to 2 weeks but it picked back up in the 4th week. Best of luck to you. .
