That's great. Have you been losing at a steady rate? I've been sleeved for 3 weeks and I've lost 15 lbs. The scale hasn't moved for about a week.. sigh..

I'm a little bit higher than you all are to start off (208) - but it is a proven fact that my weight is NOT going to go down on it's own, or even if I try to lose it with diets (that's been proven too).

I am 5' 6", and the lowest weight I can remember was in 1993 when I got down to 135 lbs (from about 150 - big deal). From there it has gone up, up, up. Then next time I remember noticing my weight was in 1997, and I weighed 160. Got on Weight Watchers and lost 15 lbs, then fell off the wagon, and up it went again. Tried Medifast, Nutrisystem, Quick Weight Loss Centers, Jenny Craig, Adkins, and I would lose 10, then gain 15, over and over and over.

When I hit the dreaded 200 I said NOPE - THAT DOES IT! Time for drastic measures. And now, (well, next week on the 11th), VOILA!!!!!! I WILL BE SLEEVED!!! YAY!!!!! Good luck to all of us, even if it's slow going!! :D

I am also in the same boat with similar stats and my weight loss is at a snails pace. I was sleeved on 8/9 and have lost 31 but most of itwasright away and I have lost only about 8 lbs in this last month. I am not a patient person. I need results quickly.

Anyone under 180lbs and getting sleeves?

I have recently started to feel a bit guilty about getting sleeved for being overweight but not obese.

I have other medical issues that have helped me make the decison to get sleeved' date=' but I am curious

to see if there is anyone else in the same boat.[/quote']

I'm really close to not been approved due to my bmi been exactly 35 just crossing my fingers

Ok update. I had surgery at 175 on 8/28. And as of last week was 155#. (sorry been out of town this week and no idea on weight) but I've bougt clothes this weekend in a size 7/8 and that hasn't happened in 20 years!! So when the scale stops moving dont worry you are still losing inches!

I read page one and that was 4 days after my first surgery. I went on from there to have a second surgery because this surgery almost killed me. Having the surgery at a low BMI with no complicating factors is not worth it. I'd like to see it be against the law frankly. This is not a good vanity surgery :(

I have several co morbs and I don't think my frame can handle more weight. I am in constant pain. I am not doing this for vanity but to live a healthier longer life. My doc keeps telling me to lose weight but nothing even starving myself on the hcg diet works.

I was under 180 on sleeve day. I had no complicating factors, but I also was having it to avoid those in the future. I nearly died last week so I won't jump for joy and tell you how much I don't regret it at this point. Ironically, the complications from the surgery have added 20lbs of weight to my body so I hit the dreaded number I never wanted to see (200) because I had the surgery :(. Mind you it's all weight I will lose really fast since its from blood loss, transfusions and swelling, but dang I could of at least seen a little loss after four days in the hospital :P

That is not real weight. Don't even count it. Wait a week or two, and you'll drop everything that was Fluid based. Wishing you a speedy recovery! Sorry about the complications...

      Hey ya'll. SO. I got down to 199 for the weigh in but gained it all back right after. I have to do another month of weight management. They switched out the nutritionists at the last second and she said she doesn't pass anyone unless they have 5 veggies a week. I'm starting metformin and Farxiga today. Doc found a little bit of blood in my urine but wasn't too concerned. I'm trying not to freak myself out either. Depression is a little more intense than usual. I'm all over the damn place.

      3/19 - It wasn't a bad day I stayed up quite a bit much of the day. Have to focus on walking more before it gets too hot to walk outside at all.   Pain was less, but insomnia has kicked in the last two nights
