How much weight will I lose after gastric sleeve surgery?
If your number seems lower than expected, do not get upset. People are surprised that they cannot expect to go from 300 lbs down to 120 lbs from surgery alone. Gastric bypass is not magic, but it will get your weight down to something more manageable. Once your weight drops, it becomes easier to exercise, stay on your feet longer, enjoy life and continue to lose more weight.
The hardest part is losing the first 50 lbs of weight. Once you start to notice results you will be motivated to lose more, eat healthier, stay active, brag to your friends, and show off your amazing progress!
