    Fifty pounds in 2 months is great. Your body has to keep up.

    You've lost just about a pound a day. Sounds terrific to me!

    A pound a day i about what they told me to expect so i think you're doing FANTASTIC!!! The sleeve surgery helps you loose the weight much more slowly than the Roux-en-Y or Gastric Bypass which is one of the reasons i chose it.

    You're doing much better than average! As far as clothes, I don't know why but it happens all of a sudden. I dropped 60 lbs before I changed sizes. I think it's because the larger sizes are so roomy.....

    My surgery was the same day as yours and I am down 32lbs so I would say that you are doing BETTER than average...... I am happy with a slower weight loss... It gives my body and skin the time it needs to bounce back. Are you counting any pre-op weight loss?? If that's the case I am down 50 as well and 3 clothing sizes.

    Good Luck!

    YES, I am counting the pre op, 319lbs when I started the Liquid Fast. So in that case WE are both doing better than average!! Good Luck to you as well!!

    You are doing good! I can't see any reason to be concerned at all! Your weight loss is good! Don't get discouraged. Those pants will be falling off of ya soon enough!

    Starting BMI 2/3/2012 - 38
    Goal BMI-24! REACHED and BELOW!! 10/2012 Current BMI 21.0!
    The best goals reached are the ones hardest earned.

    I think you are doing great!!! I had my sleeve about 1 week before you and have lost over 50lbs. I have already thrown out so much of my clothes because it literally does not fit. I say be patient and you are doing great!!

    I had my surgery on 4/17/12, and have lost -63 lbs from my highest, and -53 lbs counting from the start of the pre-op diet. So, it seems like we are all losing at about the same rate! Good to know! I don't want to lose so super fast, either.. Not healthy for your body, I don't think.

    My clothes are big, too! .. I NEVER dry my clothes in the dryer, and just recently, I put my jeans in there to dry, and it helped shrink them a bit!! I put my shirts in there til almost dry, and I'll see if that helps, too.. Crazy, I know, but I never wanteddd them to shrink before, so I always just hung them to air dry in the laundry room!

    Age: 43 yrs ... Height: 5'6-1/2" ..

    01/26/12: 342.6 - Highest Weight
    03/01/12: 333 lbs - 1st Wt @ Surgeon's office
    04/17/12: 310.4 lbs - Surgery Day
    05/14/12: -50.6 gone
    10/06/12: -100.8 gone
    04/17/13: (ONE YR Post Op) -143.6 gone

    First goal: 192 lbs, (-150 lbs down) I'd like to get to at least 180

    Hi Dawn,
    My weight loss has been slow and steady - and that's the way I like it! Just know that your that moving closer to your goal and there is a light at the end of the tunnel. Best wishes for continued success!
