I know your frustration. I am just about 4 months out and I have lost 58 lbs since surgery (10 lbs before). People kept telling me that the weight was going to fall off after surgery and I wouldn't be able to keep up with clothes because I will shrink out of them as quickly as I shrunk into them. But that doesn't seem to be my experience. I thought it would be quicker than 2 lbs per week, especially this early on. But I guess I can just keep working at it, and take what I get. As you said, it is better than nothing. Just so you know that you aren't alone in this.
