You expect to lose total 130lbs or so in how long a time? In 3-4 month's time, or, one year to a year and a half? Have you taken a look at how long out the people who scream, "I hit the Century Club!!!" are? Granted, there are some who make it in less than 6 months, but for the most part, it usually comes past the 6 months mark, and for a lot of post ops, it's around the one year mark, some lose even more slowly.
Keep in mind, for a *normie* the amount of calories drs instruct to take when there's a medical need to lose weight, the number is 500-1000 kcals less than your daily output. In other words, if your present body requires 2500 kcals daily, then a 1500 kcal intake is what your body will react best to. Of course, with surgery, the intake will be much lower, especially at first, but once you've lost all the excess weight and are in maintenance, your intake should be around 1200-1400 kcals depending on your stature. At the stage you are, your intake sounds about right. As you move on to higher food stages, your intake will gradually increase, so that, when you are past the 6 month mark it will probably be arouns 800-1000 at the highest, and past one year, around 1000-1200.
Rather than focus on the scale numbers, this is the time to focus on *healthy foods* and *healthy eating.* Concentrate on training your brain to adjust to that, and your weight will move when your body is ready to release the extras. This will go along in humps and bumps, not in one smooth fell swoop.
Hang in there, a year from now, you will be amazed where you are.
