    That's amazing! I have been really trying to get off of my reflux medication. I've been on it for over 15 years. I'm working with a naturopathic doctor, and I've been able to cut back, but not totally stop the medication. I'm hoping losing some of this weight will help me finally get off of it. Your post gives me hope!

    From September through November of 2020 I lost 21lbs. From December 2020 through March 2021 I lost 20.6 lbs. for a total of 41.6 so far in 7 months. I have 20 to 25 lbs. left to go. I am thrilled that it has been at the recommended rate of loss, so not too fast. But then again, not too slow, for me anyway. Just keep at it and you will there😊

    My birthday is Tuesday, and my goal 3 years ago was to lose 100 pounds by my birthday. This morning when I weighed I have lost 105. I went from 227 pounds to 122.4 . I am actually 2 days early. I am so excited. see before and after photos. I am off my reflux meds, I am no longer pre diabetic , I sleep better, and my bladder is no longer over active. I will be 67 years old on Tuesday and I can say I am no longer a serial dieter. I am on my way to being a weight maintainer. 7ngjilt49zw3.jpg May 2018

    Thank you Beth, and congrats on your 47.4 pound loss. That's impressive from Feb to now, good luck you can do it. Wishing you much success, just be patient with yourself is the one thing I had to learn along the way. And Happy Easter. Yes I have given myself the best Birthday gift ever. I am going to celebrate with a Birthday massage. No food celebrations for this girl.

    I eat a very bland diet, no spicy food and no carbonated beverages but it's worth it not to have the pain of reflux and not to have to take the meds. I was on Nexium for over 20 years and the side effects from long term use were starting to scare me. Also taking the weight off helps me digest my food that I do eat better, smaller portions through out the day versus big meals at single settings . Good luck and Happy Easter.

    ....and back to OP’s question. Yes! But I started almost 100 pounds overweight, underate and over exercised. Fortunately, a visit with a RD two or three months in quickly set me straight and bumped up my per diem.

    The weight loss slowed down dramatically - or so it felt- about sixty pounds in, but by that time I was so invested in the process it didn’t matter. I was feeling better GERD gone, joint pain under control, mobility and stamina off the charts. The next six months loss was slower, but the time felt like it passed super quick.

    Having said that, you have to pace yourself and have realistic expectations. I just read another thread where someone with ten pounds to lose is bemoaning that she’s only lost two in a month. The closer you are to goal, the slower it’s gonna come off. Unrealistic expectations are a *kitten*.

    I started my journey at the end of July after seeing my Orthopedic Surgeon for double knee replacements. He said he wouldn't do any surgery until I lost 100 lbs. Looking back at my calendar where I documented my weight everyday, I lost a total of 47 lbs. the first three months. I am now down, as of today, 96 lbs.

    How’s the knees? Did the weight loss help them? Surgery still on the agenda?
