I have my gastric sleeve surgery coming up in a couple weeks and am trying to prepare for how fast I will be losing weight after my procedure.
I am 5’6″ and 255, which is a BMI of 41ish. I am so(!) excited to lose this weight.
I know you can lose weight at a pretty rapid rate, so I’m trying to understand the practical implications of that. For example, how much can I expect to lose on average from week to week or month to month?
This is really important to me because I work in a VERY professional office, and I know I’m going to be successful at this (woo!), but that means I’m going to need to buy new clothes as I lose weight. Turns out professional clothes are rather expensive : ( and I’m certainly no millionaire so I’m going to need to budget this out a bit.
I can find a lot of information online about the long-term weight loss of gastric sleeve, but not a lot of information on the rate of weight loss per week or per month.
Any info would be super helpful! Thanks so much and god bless!
