I'm 5'7 1/2" and 171lbs. I am still wearing a size 14, they're a little big but 12's are too tight still. I started at 270 and was wearing a size 20 - 22 (mostly Lane Bryant brand). Crazy how different it is based on body shapes.....

Funny someone said their skeleton size, I've always said, I think my skeleton is an 8, and the smallest I could ever be would be a 10.

I'm in the same boat - I have PCOS and this is my whole reasoning for getting banded as well. I'm getting married Nov 2011 and we really want kids, so here's hoping that with the band I will get my weight and this syndrom under control and be able to have kids! Good luck to you!!

Thanks for the replies! And congrats to all for your weightloss!!!


I have a mini-goal of 300lbs. I hope that by that time ill be atleast in a size 20. Im not to concerned with sizes. I just want to have babies!!!:thumbup:

Stooopid PCOS!:eek:

But a size 12 would be so nice. :w00t:

I work out on a occasion believe it or not. My weight is pretty evenly distributed.

I have never seen a size 12. I swear I was a plus size new born I cant remember ever shopping in the jr misses section. I went from 3T to 3X.. (well in my mind I did):wink:

Keep the advise/comments coming. Im trying to take it all in :):cool:

        Hello Joset, why haven't you been given a diet plan? Did you have your surgery in the UK? Every surgeon has a different diet, and no two people are on the same one. Weird I know. Contact your team if you can

        Mine was two weeks clear liquids

        Two weeks on soups, milk shakes and broths all with out lumps

        two weeks on pureed foods { I couldn't stomach this step }

        two weeks on soft foods like Protein yogurt, stewed mince and veg, soft scrambled eggs. Pate on hard crackers

        Then onto any food I fancied. If you struggle on any step or with any foods go back a step for a few days. Eggs, salmon and chicken are hard for beginners.

        Sorry I missed your original post, hope you are still on here.
