Gastric Sleeve Surgery Date Set.....low Bmi



Recommended Posts

I am soooo happy to have found this thread... I am a 30.8 BMI and have never been out of the overweight to obese category my whole teen to adult life... I am tired of fighting my body and know the sleeve us the right thing... I want to lose 50 lbs... Still catch myself thinking this is so extreme for 50 lbs but that 50 might as well be 100 for how it has plagued me! Would love to hear about your surgeons... I have it down to 3 with one front runner! The words that resonate in my head are every time someone says " I wish I had done this sooner!"

Good for you! I am a low bmi too, but do you know what? At a bmi of 32 I was still obese. Now I have lost 30 PDs in 7 wks and am officially just overweight! I can't wait to be normal! Lol

I'm not getting in all of the Water. I'm guessing 40-50 oz? My nutritionist said it takes a long while to get a pattern during the day where you are not drinking after you eat, but are drinking regularly other than that.

My energy level is not enough for exorcize these days. I'm hoping it goes up soon. Other than that, loving my sleeve.

This might be a weird question for this topic but since we are all low BMIers....

Has anyone ever had a high BMI person from this forum question you on why you want this surgery?

I guess I should pay more attention to what I am eating too. In

10 weeks I expected to be down ATLEAST 30 lbs. Really hoping to be at 150 by the 1 Jun. It seem so unrealistic with my weightloss moving so slow. I'm 194 now (for the second day)....Started at 217....I'm glad its moving but when I set out to pay over $15000 cash, I really thought this was going to be faster. I don't regret it BUT I guess I expected the weight to come off faster. My doctor asked, "If you had gained 20+ pounds in 8 weeks you would think that was alot.....so why with you losing that much in that time do you think its not enough.....The simple answer...well because I

paid $15000 dollars expecting to lose it a little faster....

Not so much ask me, but say in their opinion.... Lol. That's fine, anyone can question all they want. It's my body, my life experiences, my journey. I bet if you asked them if they could reverse their procedure at 200 PDs and do the rest themselves, they would/ could not. ( if it were possible lol). Most on here are very supportive though, except perhaps those that have had complications themselves. And in those instances I can sympathize and understand why they would be anti wls with low bmi....

I've never had a high BMI person question me about this. THIN people, however, told me "you don't need sugery...you're fine...just exercise and watch your calories."

It seems to me that obese people who've struggles with weigh for a long time understand how difficult losing and maintaining can be. Naturally thin, people, however, just don't get it.

people do question me about not being " that" heavy however I think we all have the same reasons better health to avoid genetic issues ect. No success with weight loss programs. Absolutely I would prefer not to approach this surgically however the alternative for me is continued pain eventual diabetic conditions. I'm young enough that I have lots to do. No one is going to change my mind.

I'm fortunate to have a low BMI and good health (no co-morbidities). However, the yo-yo dieting for over 40 years has taken a toll on me psychologically, socially, etc.

It's about *loving yourself*, not pleasing others or worrying about what society thinks. I'm fitting back into my size 14 jeans and feel so much better. My goal is to wear size 10, which is very feasible.

Since I converted from LapBand, my weight loss is S-L-O-W. However, I'm still happy that the scale is heading in the right direction.

I am grateful to this group and several other online forums for giving me the strength to do this. It was a VERY scary decision and I'm thrilled that I made it.

I didn't t tell anyone for those exact reasons! Then when you do start loosing weight, there's "some reason" other than your own hard work. People always wanna hear it was ww, Jenny Craig, or some diet pill... Or wls.., as opposed to our own hard work. We could all screw this up to if we didn't try. But somehow having a "reason" for others downplays our own hard work, while substantiating to them why they couldn't do it.

      I'm checked into the hotel near the hospital and just had my last protein shake of the day. My mom has kindly gone down to the restaurant alone so as not to make me die from watching her eat dinner. Checking in at the hospital tomorrow at 10:50am. So ready!

      Six months pots-op as of yesterday. I celebrated with a HIIT class where I was challenged to do a wall-assisted handstand. I truly thought there's no way in hell that I can get up there. Well... I proved myself wrong. The instructor said, "Just try getting one foot up there." I tried and it was so easy, that the other foot went up, and the next thing that I knew, I was standing on my hands with my legs up in the air, leaning against the wall.
      Last weekend I challenged myself to a 10-mile hike, and I was SURE that my legs would be non-functional that night and the next day. But that didn't happen at all.  But I did learn that I need a new hiking boot or shoe. I've got a goal of walking the Portuguese coastal route of the El Camino later this year, and I good shoes will be essential.
      I've hit another weight loss stall, but that's to be expected. I am so close to my goal already that if it does take 6 more months to get that last stone off, that's okay with me. And I am building muscle, so that stone may never move. S'alright friends, s'alright.
