Hi Tracey -
Below is my 7 month weight loss stats. As you can see the 1st month was the highest weight loss and then it decreased. Keep in mind that there are so many variables that impact how quickly we lose weight (metabolism, starting weight, gender, age, type of operation (RNY/DS may lose more vs sleeve/lapband since it is also malabsorption), how many calories we intake, how many calories we burn with exercise, etc). I always tell OH members to try not to compare themselves to others - in particular if they are going to get upset by it. However, I think we all like to know how our results stack up to others.
The only thing we can control is that we are getting in our required protein + water + exercise + vitamins. Our bodies at the end of the day will decide how fast or slow we take off the weight.

Hope this info is of help to you.
