So you’ve been through the Virtual Gastric Band program and you’ve lost weight over the four sessions you had. We expect most people to lose 8 lbs over the four weeks and we like to see a steady loss that can be sustained over the months ahead until you reach your right size. Now some people lose that much weight in the first week and others after four weeks have shed 16-20 lbs. But typically 8 lbs is a good expectation to set and puts you on the path to 50 lbs weight loss in six months. Most people are happy with that figure as it represents quite a few dress sizes or trouser waist sizes less than in their current wardrobe. But getting from 8 lbs to 50 lbs loss is not a given – here’s how to stick to the plan.
