Picking a goal weight is so hard. The only guidance I have is the bmi charts and mybodygallery.com. The lowest weight I have been as an adult was on my wedding day when I hit 133. That was after 5 months of dieting and running 5 miles a day, every day. That being said, I would love to be maintain between 115-125. It seems like such a far fetched dream. I am 5'2".

My surgeon told me that 135-140 would be ideal for me. I'm at 149 and I would love to get to 130 I'm already a size 6 sometimes 4 and have noticed that now the lower I go the more things are sagging and I'm not really liking the way my face is starting to look. I feel healthy and would love to be 120 but I may not look so healthy. So I think first set a realistic goal but do not tie your self to it.

I'm 5'2 and got sleeved Nov. 30th, 2012 @ 193.4lbs. I've lost 33 lbs at my 6 weeks follow up. It's all been worth it to be free of Type2, high cholesterol, high blood pressure, restless leg syndrome, low potassium!!! I even had a hernia repair of a prior hysterectomy and it was Huge! I feel SO MUCH BETTER!! Who's with me?!!!

Hello fellow vertically challenged girls! I am 5'2 (and a half ha ha). I had surgery on 8/17/12. My weight was 217 lbs. I am currently 159 lbs. My 1st goal is to be a normal BMI (136 lbs). My second goal is more a bit more complicated because I'm not sure where I will like my body at. I had a bangin bod in my teens when I was 115-118 lbs...but that was my teens. I was happy in my early 20's at 120-125 lbs...but can I get there again and how would I (and my skin look)? So I think my ultimate goal is about 125 lbs. I'm happy to meet all you petite ladies who can relate to our unique challenges :)

I am 5ft 2" too. Weighed about 115 when I got married. The doctor wants me to get to 130. Since I started at 225.5 I have a ways to go!!!

      Going in on Tuesday. Things are arranged (need to order a cab to the station because it's too early for a bus going there) and I'm getting more nervous by the hour.

      I feel like I've finally gotten past the biggest hurdle. Surgery date is September 6th, the day after Labor Day, and yesterday I got my insurance approval letter. I've followed everything they've told me to do, and I've even lost 30 lbs on my own since hubby had to change his diet for diabetes. No worries now about having to do 4 weeks of the liver shrinking diet instead of 2. On my initial visit, if I had gained just 5lbs I would have had to do 4 weeks. It's getting closer. Just 2 more months to wait.

        Although the prep work took energy, I found the biggest hurdle was post-operative. The first 48 hrs were extremely uncomfortable. I did an overnight and trying to down the liquids, Tylenol, and especially the barium was rough. Thankfully though, I got away with only having to have 1 belly injection after surgery. Needless are not my thing.

      I am looking for people to connect with that are 4-5 years out. Many of the support sights I go to are all newbies. And while I enjoyed that when i first had my surgery and found it useful, I am looking to exchange ideas with folks that are out a few years. I am slowly gaining weight back and losing my excitement. I don't want that!
