Average weightloss post op

I'm having VSG next week mon. I about 70 lbs to lose. I was wondering, on average, how much a lightweight can expect to lose? ( generally speaking) at 3 months? 6 months?
Good luck with your surgery!
I had my surgery 7/6/11 and weighed 211 on surgery day. At 3 months I weighed 170# (41 pounds lost!) and 6 months 149.4# (61.6 pounds lost!).
I would like to caution you, everyone loses differently. I would go a couple of weeks with losses of a pound or less, then would have a big loss all at once. I think it was my way of my body adjusting.
Good luck!!! It is the best!

I had my RNY in July and it took me every bit of 11 months to reach my goal....compared to others I was a slow loser. I REALLY slowed down in months 8, 9, and 10 (I'm talking 2-3 pounds a month****pt thinking ...."I can't be done!"
Just relax, follow the rules and your surgeon's advice....the weight WILL come off!!!
It's a GREAT ride, enjoy it!!! There are tons of NSV's along the way...don't just focus on a number!
