Over 400Lbs Gastric Sleeve Success Story



Recommended Posts

Hi everyone!

I'm coming up on the 3 year anniversary of beginning my WLS journey and I recall very vividly how daunted I felt by the fact that I needed to lose 300 lbs. I turned to forums such as this for stories of those who had somehow managed the feat and held on to each one for inspiration. Now maybe I can inspire others...

My highest weight was 480+. I had a year and a half wait before getting my sleeve and went into surgery weighing 342 lbs. Today I am 16 months post-op and weigh 190 lbs. That's 152 lbs lost since surgery and 290 total. I feel like I'm getting a second chance at life and i am constantly amazed at everything i'm able to do now.

You can do this too!

I was sleeved in June 2017. My husband, who has struggled with his weight for years, finally decided to have WLS to save his life! He should have surgery the week before Thanksgiving. My husband weighed 710 lbs in February of this year and has gotten down to 581 lbs. He starts his liquid diet this week, so we’re hoping he’ll lose more prior to surgery.

I’m having a hard time finding other WLS patients who started as high as my husband did.

I'm so glad I found this thread as a BIG loser, I'd love to speak to other who have lots to lose.
