    While it applies to ALL surgeries, it's not an exact science. YOUR body will do what it wants. Just do your best. And after your surgery, STAY off the scale except for doctor appts for the first 3 months.

    Thank you. I just thought it was a good tool in keeping an eye on things to see if I am on track. It certainly seems feasible which is actually a relief so glad I saw this post :)

    I know this is an old post but Im purposely bumping it bc so many of us newbies need to read this. We get frustrated with what we perceive as our slow rate of weight loss, especially those who were revisions. Viewing the weight loss from this perspective makes alot of sense.

    I'm glad you bumped it. I read it months ago, but honestly had forgotten about it--nice reminder and much appreciated.

    I thought what @southernlady wrote really helped me thing about this

    This chart might help. (and notice, these are not by pounds but percentages)!
    2 weeks - 5-10%
    6 weeks - 10-15%
    3 mos - 20-30%
    6 mos - 45-55%
    12 mos - 60-70%
    18 mos - 75-85%
    I'm 89% down at 10.5 months out.
