I felt like a slow loser too at one month out. Everyone's body reacts differently to this surgery. I am 2 1/2 mos postop and the bulk of my weight came off in the preop diet and within the first week. Then my body went through a very long stall....like 3 weeks. It is normal. I steadily lose 2-3 lbs a week now, sometimes I lose nothing at all....but sometimes I lose 5 lbs in a week. My advice is to avoid being a slave to the scale. Take your measurements, feel the difference in your energy level and overall health, and watch for small
changes in your body (take lost of pictures). Stay on your eating and exercise plan and you will be successful!
