Height, Weight, And Size Poll



Recommended Posts

Where do you stand?

No matter where you are on your journey, could you share some body stats? If not your current stats, then where you started?

I sometimes see people becoming discouraged if someone is losing faster, or someone who weighs the same as they do can wear a smaller size.

I think it will help to see that everyone is DIFFERENT, we all carry our weight differently, and height makes a difference. Muscle mass and gender make a HUGE difference.

Feel free to update as your size changes.

My highest weight was 226lbs and I was wearing a size 18-20 pants/skirts and XL shirts.

I dont wanna lose weight to quick (scared of hanging skin). I am 10 day post op so I am a newbie to this sleeve life but so far I love the choice!

I am 5'6". Started at 255, size 22/24 and 3x tops. Currently at 160, size 10 and large tops (a few mediums). Still losing steadily. I've work out quite a bit, which has really helped me. Surgery was six months ago.

I'm 5' 7" and my highest without being pregnant was 268. Pregnant I was more like 280. I was a tight 22 and in 2x tops in January 2012.

Today I'm 178 and size 14 pants (most of the time, though in older clothes I'm in 16s - sizes used to be smaller!) and Large or XL tops. I like things a little loose. I've got some Lucky jeans I really want to wear but don't like the muffin-top when I sit down. They look great if I'm standing! =)

I'd like to loose at least 20 more lbs. I've been a total slacker for the past few months and I'm loosing much slower as a result. I could probably double my average loss per month if I'd exercise some more!

Height 5'3"

Highest Weight 260ibs, size 20/22 pants and 1x-2x tops

Surgery Weight 221.5lbs, size 18/20 and 1x tops

Current weight, 138lbs, size 4/6 pant, xs/s tops

I was a slower loser, it took me 18 months to reach my goal of 140lbs, and now I have dropped a little below! And it is true about sizes varying wildly depending on bones, muscles, etc. I wear the same size as someone I know that is almost 10lbs lighter than me!

I just started this process about 4 days ago, but I am about 3-5 months pre-op! =)

I (21F) am currently at 326, 5"10. I wear a loose 26 in pants (they were recently given to me by a cousin who had the surgery). I wear a 2XL in shirts.

I can't wait until my surgery so I can become a better me!

I am 5'3" and currently weigh 184 lbs and wear a size 16 or 18. The weight is not coming off of my waist as quickly as it is coming off of my hips and butt. Though the waist of my pants fit, the butt and hip areas of my pants are very baggy. I hope this trend stops and my waist area catches up.

I am 7 weeks post op and have lost 32 lbs so far.

      So my surgery anniversary date is on the 24th of this month, but I had my 1-year follow up early with my surgeon this morning (I have another 1-year followup at the hospital on Monday to get my bloodwork and labs done).
      Anyhoo...my surgeon was very pleased with my results (and so where the office staff apparently, because 3 of the front desk ladies came by my exam room to give me props/high fives/generally gawk at me).
      But get this: he asked if I would be willing to come in for a future photoshoot so that I could be on a poster! And I was all, ummmm....no thanks, LOL.

      Today was a really tough day and I turned to food (and a watered down glass of wine). The interesting part was that I felt REALLY full after eating half my go to cheat snack, tortilla chips with cheese. So the GBP is doing its job!

      The only way I can tell that I'm losing weight is from the scale and my clothes "getting bigger".
