How much weight did you loose after 6 months

13 posts in this topic

I was wondering how much weight people lost after their 6 months were up? My 6 months are up next week, and up to this point for the last 3 months I have been loosing 10 pounds a month, sometimes more. After 6 months did the amount of weight you lost each month change dramatically? Just curious

you've done so good and look so cute. I only am losing 7-8 lbs per month. I am almost 5 months and I am 1 lbs away from the 60 lbs mark. I hope others answer because I wonder how bad it slows

thats exactly what I was wondering... I was hoping that even though I have hit the 6th month mark that I would continue to loose at a reasonable rate...

I stalled my entire sixth month out but after that I lost about two pounds a week (with a couple other shorter stalls) until about one year out. My weight loss slowed down considerably after one year.

I am almost 9 months out and I have lost close to 100 lbs (Have to get 3 lbs off this week to reach 100lbs- 14th is my 9 month anniversary. )

My weight loss is weird . I go 2 weeks the same and then I drop 7 lbs in a week. So my weight loss is kinda a weird. First 3 months I lost the most. I lost close to 60 lbs by my 4th month and it has taken 5 months to lose another 40lbs. So I figure it was around 10lbs a month.

I stalled for a few months though and had very small losses and now I am back to losing again. I think when you lose a lot your body just says Hey wait a minute here.

Just keep active, eat how we are suppose to and it will come off. And remember as you get smaller it will get slower so that is when you need to increase the activity. that is the time I think I will be worried the most.

Sorry your doctor told you that. My doctor will not even give me a goal. He just says keep doing what you are doing and we will discuss goals when the time get near. He always told me that the first year you will lose the most, but that you can keep losing beyond that if you treat your pouch well and follow the rules.

The best advice I got from my Nut was " You will never get that first year back" I remember this whenever I am tempted to eat something I am not suppose to.

I am going to take it 1 day at a time. Going to try to get under 200- by October - my first year. Then will just have to work a little harder next year.

I want to lose 10 lbs a month. That's all. If I do that then in a year I would have lost all of the weight I wanted and reach my goal. I don't want to lose 50-60 lbs in the first few months. That's too drastic for me.

Thanks for all of your responses.

I was losing a ton of weight the first 6 months. I know the first two months I dropped about 60 pounds, but I can't remember after that. :cool:

I am six months out and have lost 89lbs. My weight loss is also weird in that I will stay the same for 2 weeks, then drop 5-8lbs seemingly overnight. I don't know how much weight loss slows after 6 months, but I know it slowed a lot for me after 3 months. But I am still losing at a good rate.

My surgeon told us we will be at our lowest weight 18 months to 2 years out. And he can not/will not predict an amount of weight we will lose. So to the person whose surgeon told them they will only lose 20-30 more pounds, I wouldn't hold much faith to that.

I lost exactly 100 lbs in six months. The 2 years since that date, I've lost an additional 36 lbs (down to 181) and regained up to a new high of 205 and am back down to 192. Nothing I seem to do anymore makes a difference in my weight loss, though regain is another matter all together.. I can look at food and regain.

I agree with the comment that you can never get that first year back.. you will never lose weight the way you do that first year, ever again. It simply isn't possible. Use that time wisely!

I kept really good stats on my progress. In 6 months after gbs, I lost 85 pounds. I hit my 1st weight loss plateau very soon after surgery in 2009. But, things worked out fine!

I was a consistent low/slow loser..... only lost about 10 to 11 pounds from the third month of my surgery (I didn't lose ANYTHING my second month after my surgery despite adhering to my doctors stringent diet) for the first 14 months..... So while I didn't have the fast, dramatic weight loss a lot of others did I did lose 153 pounds... and kept it off (so far).

I'm struggling to lose that last 10 pounds before my 2 year surgiversary this October... I just started the 5DPT so see if I can jump start my metabolism.... I do exercise every day (run 1 mile, walk 1 mile, exercise bike 20 minutes a day) so I'm firming up-just not losing any more pounds.

It's tough, don't be discouraged by those that lose a LOT of weight quickly in the first 6 to 8 months....just keep at it, in the end, it does seem to even out.

Good Luck, get your protein in and start exercising!!!!
