Yes, I understand that when you are a lightweight it's the percentages and not the weight lost that counts. I have 120 lbs to lose. I'm 9 weeks out from a VSG to a DS. I have had bumps in the road-low iron levels that knocked me on my ass for weeks and caused me to get infusions. But my day of surgery I was 238. 9 weeks later I am 226. I can't seem to alter how fast i lose weight. exercise, eating like a DSer, etc...nothing seems to work. is it because i'm a stage II DSer? is it just because I'm a lightweight? I'm at a loss here.
