    Slvsax, congrats! Can't wait to see pics of your sparkly dress!
    My stats...surgery 12/20/13. High weight was 238. As of today I am 138 - down an even 100 pounds. (12 pounds under goal). I'm in size 7 jeans and medium tops. I refuse to buy any more clothes, so I'm really trying to load on the calories, yet still eat healthy. It's harder than it sounds
    PS did I mention how much I love my sleeve?!

    Sleeved 12/31/21013, I've lost 78 lbs (232 to 154 lbs). I'm very happy with the results.
    I'm finding myself more hungry some days and having cravings. I'm working out a lot, though, and generally eating healthier. I don't want any gains!

    Hello, guys!
    I started at 238 lbs, was sleeved 11/17/13. Now I'm 151 lbs. I'm 5'5 and wearing size 6-8, depends on company. Yesterday, I bought few sweaters that x-small (!). Except of mod acid reflux, I don't have any complications. I feel very good and very happy with the results! I'm very nervous about food cravings coming back and gaining wt:((.

    I started at 314 (although my pcp mentioned 324 as my highest weight) and had surgery on 12/10/2013.
    I'm fluctuating between 167 and 169 as of late and seem to have leveled off. So down about 146 pounds and wearing size 34 pants.
    I would like to lose another 5 pounds but grateful to be where I am.

    I started at a high of 362 lbs. Surgery was on 12/23/13. My current weight is 218 lbs. My total weight loss has been 144 pounds!
    Weight loss has slowed considerably but is still happening. Hit my goal of 230 in July but still moving slowly downward.

    Thinking this may be goal for me at 5'7" so now all I have to do is stay here and get some things tucked up surgically!

    AtlantaRed got a reaction from Rach8610 in looking for buddies who had 200+ to lose   
    I'm supposed to lose 170 to reach a "healthy" BMI. I started at 315. I was 309 when I started my 2 week preop and now I am 200 (anxiouslybawaiting the 199).
    Surgery date was 12/13/13. I am almost 9 months out and down 115.
    I've gone from a 26/28 down to a 14 so far.
    I chose to be very low carb. I don't like artificial sweeteners so I only drink Water. I still don't drink with meals.
    I've definitely had stalls but I just stay the course because it's a numbers game and if you're doing what you're supposed to, it has to work.
    I'm shooting for losing as much as I can in the first year since that window gets smaller and smaller every day. I don't eexercise a lot but I can move so much easier now, I'm out hiking a lot and doing tons of yard work.
    This will be TMI but usually my stalls will break once I have regular movements. I have issues with constipation. Miralax is great, but not in plain Water. If you drink other SF things, take miralax daily.
    I'm 41 and 5'2 and have been overweight most of my life so the saggy skin is gross, but so worth it.
