How Much Weight Can I Lose In 3 Months?

Have you ever wanted to lose weight so you would look your best for a special event? Or maybe you need to have some type of surgery, but your doctor has advised you that you have to lose weight first. Maybe right now you are asking yourself, “How much weight can I lose in 3 months?”

It would be awesome if there was a standard answer to this question, but the process of weight loss is complex. The answer to how much weight you can lose in 3 months is different for each person.

Today, in addition to presenting some practical strategies for safely losing weight in 3 months, we are going to talk about a few non-surgical procedures that can be game-changers in a weight loss journey.

How Much Weight Can I Realistically Lose In 3 Months?

According to the CDC and other health professionals, a healthy rate of weight loss is about 1 to 2 pounds a week. The idea is that if you use certain strategies and lifestyle modifications, you will lose weight, but it is not always that straightforward.

There are a few things to consider before you attempt to hit the ground running on your weight loss journey. First, your current weight often plays a part in how fast you will be able to lose weight. This is because the only way to lose weight is to create a calorie deficit, meaning that you need to expend more calories in a day than you take in.

Calories are burning all the time because this is what keeps our bodies functioning. Functions like breathing, digesting food, pumping blood to your heart, etc. all require energy from calories. The more excess weight an individual is carrying, the harder their body has to work to perform these functions, and the more calories are required to do the job. This makes it a bit easier for heavier individuals to create a calorie deficit, and they normally lose weight faster.

Everyone is different, and family history, genetics, lifestyle, medical conditions, medications you are taking, hormone balances, your own metabolism, and more can make your body resistant to your weight loss efforts. Some of these factors can actually cause you to gain weight. There is nothing more frustrating or discouraging than to work hard watching what you eat, counting calories, making sure you exercise, and trying your best to create a calorie deficit but seeing no weight loss progress.

If you have any of these underlying issues keeping your body from responding to the strategies you are using to create a calorie deficit you are like a car stuck in mud, just spinning your wheels and getting nowhere. So, what can you do?

Get Help From A Specialist

If you are serious about losing weight in 3 months and you desire to experience sustainable weight loss progress, you should consider getting help from a doctor who has extensive training in obesity medicine, like Dr. Steven Batash. The last thing you want to do is put time and effort into trying to lose weight and get no results.

Working with Dr. Batash and his knowledgeable team at Batash Endoscopic Weight Loss Center can ensure that your efforts produce results. Working with a team of experts who understand the complexities of obesity is extremely beneficial because they can identify the hidden things going on in the background and create a customized plan tailored for your circumstances.

To break through these underlying hindrances, your plan may include prescription weight loss medication or a non-surgical weight loss tool like a gastric balloon or endoscopic sleeve gastroplasty, making a calorie deficit and subsequent weight loss possible.

How Much Weight Can I Lose In 3 Months With A Gastric Balloon Or ESG?

The amount of weight you can lose in three months will depend on your current weight and how committed you are to making the changes necessary to promote weight loss. An endoscopic weight loss procedure can help take the edge off some of the most challenging aspects of losing weight, like overeating or feeling hungry all the time, but it won’t do all the work for you.

Gastric Balloon

If you research what average weight loss results to expect from a gastric balloon, you will find many different answers. You will find that the average weight loss after six months is around 10% to 20% of the individual’s total body weight, and you will also find answers like between 30% and 40% of their excess weight in six months. It is important to understand the difference between these two measurements.

Total body weight
TW is how much you weighed at the start of your weight loss journey, so if you weighed 250 pounds before the balloon was placed and you lost the average amount of 10 to 20% of your total weight, this would mean a loss of between 25 and 50 pounds.
Excess body weight
EW is the number of pounds you need to lose in order to reach your ideal weight. So if you weigh 250 pounds and your ideal weight is 140 pounds, your excess weight would be equal to 110 pounds. If you lost between 30 and 40 percent of this excess weight, it would be between 33 and 44 pounds.

Again, these are only averages, and much of your success depends on you. Here are some of our gastric balloon patients after balloon removal, so you can get an idea of real results that can be attained when combining a gastric balloon procedure with healthy lifestyle changes.

This patient lost 15 pounds in one month, and a total of 51 pounds after six months with the Orbera balloon. Since most of the weight loss takes place over the first several months, she probably lost around 35 pounds in 3 months.

How Much Of Losing Weight In 3 Months Depends On Me?

Weight loss balloons and the ESG procedures are great tools to help you lose weight, but they are not magical solutions. They can assist you in losing weight by helping you control your portions and giving you a feeling of fullness, but most of the work to achieve sustainable weight loss falls on you. Your weight loss results will depend largely on your dedication and consistency in making changes to your eating habits and your lifestyle. Some of these changes might include:

  • Making healthier food choices;
  • Watching your portions;
  • Getting enough physical activity;
  • Getting enough sleep;
  • Managing your level of stress;
  • Staying hydrated.

Working with a specialist like Dr. Batash will help you know which behaviors and habits to change or adjust to benefit your health and promote a healthy weight. Putting these changes into practice consistently will create new, healthier habits and result in a lower, healthier weight and improvements to your health.
