I'm freaking out
Wow, 52 lbs in just ten weeks? That's more than five pounds per week! And you feel that surgery wasn't worth it? How much did you think you would just in just ten weeks?
I can tell you I did not experience that. I did not lose so much weight so fast. Many people don't. It took me quite a bit longer than ten weeks to lose 52 lbs, but I still feel surgery was worth it for me. In just 18 months, I lost about 150 lbs and I've been at my goal weight for several years now.
Please note: I AM NOT A DOCTOR. If you want medical advice, talk to your doctor. Whatever I post, there is probably some surgeon or other health care provider somewhere that disagrees with me. If you want to know what your surgeon thinks, then ask him or her. Check out my blog.
I think you need to reevaluate your expectations and be reasonable. You are actually well ahead of many others at this point. Also, be prepared for stalls and even small gains along the way as your body adjusts. Be patient!

The PA needs a reminder that this is not a race. There is a bell curve to almost everything, and I'll bet your loss falls somewhere near the top! I'm 3 months today, and very pleased with my loss, and it's just about the same as yours. Don't let a negative attitude bring you down!!! You're doing wonderful.
