I notice that must sleeves are in the high 200's but is there anyone who started higher. My weight day off was 362 give or take a pound....my doctor told me the most common procedure for my weight was the bypass but the long term results are very much the same. Im 5'7" but I definitely strated off way bigger than some posts I see...just curious to know I'd I'm alone lol

I started at 416, and there are folks here that started higher than me. You are definitely not alone!

My surgeon suggested bypass to me as well but I insisted on having the sleeve.

I weighed 385 on my surgery day. I don't know what the future holds but I have lost 52 lbs since surgery. Look in the 200+ pounders forum for more inspiration.

Thanks so much. I sure will. I was starting to get worried.

Thanks ladies you helped ease a lot of concern. I originally started at 400 as well, it's great to see you all doing so good. Can't wait until I'm losing fifty plus....

I was 432. Had surgery on January 30th. Down 100 lbs

Wow congrats! That's serious motivation. What do you do? Any special exercising?

You are not alone... I started at 358# a little over six months ago. And I have lost over 100#. Honestly, I think it depends on the surgeon. Mine was suggesting the sleeve from the beginning. The results are pretty similar.

It's not always about the total weight, take into account the height/weight ratio, and BMI, and you will find that even though some weighed less than you starting, they technically would have farther to go so to speak. My starting BMI was 46.9, and to get to an 'average' weight at 5'3", I have more to lose than someone who weighed 301 and is 5'8". Also, age and gender are big players too. There are many of us from all shapes and walks of life, so don't worry. You are not alone in anyway on this journey :)

My top weight was 472. I lost 50 lbs prior to surgery and have lost 43 since surgery which was March 8th. I have a long way to go, but already feel so much better! My Dr. suggested the sleeve surgery!

      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
