I wanted to start a forum for members who are pre or post op and are 5'2" and under. I am 4'9" and post-op. In 4 months, I have lost over 50 lbs and would like to connect with others of my body type so we can compare stories and support each other.

I'm 5'0" and currently 201 but having surgery Jan 30, CAN'T WAIT!!! Goal is 130ish but 125 would be great! 135 is still good anything is better than what I am now! The least I have weighed since having kids was 10.5 yrs ago and it was 145 and I looked pretty dang good then...to me anyhow LOL so I'm sure I will be happy with my weight after the surg. I just want to feel better and my joints will def thanks me!
