Hello it is me again,

I have a question that I'd like to get a little more information about. How much weight is normal to lose during the first one to two weeks post op? So far in 8 days post-op, I have lost 6 lbs. I'm overjoyed, but I think that it would not be good to continue to lose weight like that if it continues (just my guess). I have to lose some weight (about 30 lbs.), but I want to do it healthily through diet and exercise. Does the weight loss even out after the first two weeks?

I'm not too worried about it, because my body is going to do what it wants to do. I can only try to take in all the necessary nutrients and calories.

Any information would be great. Thank you for reading my post.

I lost 11 lbs in the first two weeks and then it leveled out.

I lost 20 pounds the first 5 days after surgery and then did not have any rapid weight changes. 3 months out I managed to keep 15 of those pounds off, which is good for me since I am still over 200.

After the first couple of weeks, when your diet consists of more foods than just liquids, you generally have enough control to keep your body from gaining or losing a lot of weight. I can't say much more than that for everyone, but at least for me I stopped losing weight when I could eat solid foods.
