Tall Women, Tell Me Your Story!



Recommended Posts

Hello! I am having my surgery tomorrow (!!!) and I am 5'10". HW 297, surgeon says he thinks i can get down to 150. Doesn't sound doable to me, so I thought I'd see if there are any tall women out there who can share their success stories with me! I'm shooting for 175 and will go from there....I'd love to hear your stories!

I'm 5'8-ish. My surgeon suggested 140, but I think that is too small for me. I am happiest in the 170s.

I am 5'10.. My goal is 172... I am at 193 and feel wonderful.. I have skin so not sure how to take that into account.. I know if it wasnt there I would be down 2 sizes in my pants due to the belly.. I am 56 so not interested in being to skinny.. Healthy and comfy is my goal and I am pretty close to that.

While I'm not a tall woman (which is a good thing!), my wife is! LOL

She is 5'10" and has gone from 236 to 169 in 5 months. I think she looks fantastic, however she wants to drop another 15 lbs. I think anything less than that would look unhealthy.

Good luck!

I'm 5'11 and my start weight the day of surgery was 397lbs. I'm now 279 and my dr said I should be lucky if I get to 209lbs. I can't remember weighing that ever so I will just take it as it comes and see how I feel. I know that I'd like to be under 200lbs for sure.

I am 5'9 1/2" and I thought my goal weight would be 180 pounds. I have now exceeded that weight and am at 159 pounds. I don't want to lose anymore, I am quite boney and wear a size 6 pant; good enough for me!!

I'm 5'10. My highest weight last Jan was 298. My day of surgery weight was 270. I currently weigh 215 and am 6 months out. My personal goal is 190 and the only reason I picked that goal is that is what I weighed when I wore a 12-14. But who knows! I am losing about 2 pounds per week the closer I get to goal.

I'm 5'11" and currently 183. My goal is 175. I recently had a body composition test done using a bioimpedance device and it showed that my lean body weight (bone plus muscle plus water) was 133.2. If you're a female you should have at least 20% body fat, so the lowest I should go is 160. I'm also 48, so a little bit more fat will make me look younger. Here's a body pic from last night.

I am 5'8" and my starting weight was 289. I was sleeved on 8/26/13. I currently weigh 208. My surgeons goal for me is 200lbs. My personal goal is 160.

I am hoping to hit 199 for New Years.

I am still losing between 2.5 and 3.5 lbs a week. If I can keep this pace by spring I'll hit goal. I really do not want to get below 160 because of my large frame less than that I start to look gaunt.
