Weight Loss Milestones: Six-Month Update

Six Months After Gastric Bypass

I am hopefully at the end of a three-week weight loss stall. This is the longest stall I have had, so I am consoling myself with a loss of inches. Six months out from surgery, I have lost a total of 60 lbs. and 28 inches. I have gone from wearing size 26 and 4X, to wearing size 18 and 1X. My shoe size has gone from a 10 back down to a 9. On the negative side, my hair is falling out. The doctor said that this should stop in about three months. The new supplements I added seem to be helping as well.

Inches lost*:

  • 3.25 inches off my waist
  • 8 inches off my hips
  • 4.5 inches off my chest
  • 4.75 inches off each thigh
  • 2.75 inches off each calf
  • 2.25 inches off each arm
  • 2.25 inches off my neck (!)

Things I have been doing well:

  • Not eating too much
  • Eating enough protein
  • Wearing my Fitbit
  • Increasing my supplement intake

Things I need to do better:

  • Drink more fluids
  • Exercise more, and more consistently
  • Take all of my supplements (I had to add iron, B1, Omega-3, and Biotin based on my bloodwork last month)
  • Stop eating chips

*If you happen to look back at the last time I reported inches, you might notice some discrepancies. The last numbers were wrong. I think. Who knows?



Amazing. You are inspiring! And you've actually lost more than 28" because you lost from each arm, thigh, and calf.

What is a Fitbit and what does it do for you?

Oh, yeah. Good point about the math. Fitbit is a fancy pedometer. It is tiny. I wear it on my bra. It automatically uploads the data to when I walk by my computer. I wear it to bed and it tracks my sleep patterns.

And, I wrote this post a couple days ago and scheduled it. As of today, my stall is broken with a 3-lb. loss.
