I lost 22 pounds the first month, so about 5.5 pounds at first. Now my weight loss has slowed to about two pounds per week give or take. It really does vary though. I am a revision from the band, so that can slow the weight loss down. I know some have lost 30 pounds or more their first month. The average is 20 pounds the first month, 10 pounds in months 2-5, and then 5 pounds in months 6-12. What you eat (carbs, calories) as well as how your body operates can all change this. I feel that as long as I am losing, I am happy. I try not to compare myself to others.
