Hi and thanks so much for your posting. First, I always encourage each person with bariatric surgery to make certain to check in with the nutrition/psychology/fitness team associated with each credible bariatric practice. You should be tracking your food intake and activity each day so that the team can assess your progress accurately. The WebMD Food and Fitness Planner is an ideal way to do that.
Weight reduction is variable for each person. There are many factors that can support or impede progress. All aspects of your food intake are critical for the registered dietitian to evaluate any problems you may be encountering with weight reduction. You have to stay physically active as well. Are you doing any emotional eating? Have a look at this http://drpeeke.com/data/files/PVWI12_HUNGER_FIX.pd Also, it depends upon how much total weight you're looking to shed. Sometimes the weight reduction will slow down but it keeps going.
Bottom line is check in with your team right away and have them help and support your efforts. We're here to support you as well.
Good luck and please let us know how you're doing,
