100 Pounds Down!-"Normal" BMI- Almost at Goal!



Recommended Posts

When I first started posting on this forum in August 2013, I loved, and still do love, reading the stories of people who had hit certain goals. My surgery was in September 2013, and I knew the three postings that I wanted to make....the one year surgiversary post, the 100 pounds lost post (which is the exact pound that puts me into the normal BMI range), and of course, the day I reached my final goal weight.

My one year surgiversary was in September, so knocked that one out, but as of today I have lost 100 pounds and I am finally in the "normal" range on a BMI chart! In the past I have lost 80-90 pounds a few times, but never 100, and I am now 1 pound thinner than I have ever been over the age of 21. Also, 137 is the cut-off for my height between "normal" and "overweight", so technically my entire adult life I have been classified as "overweight" according to the evil BMI chart, and as of this morning, I am normal!!

Thirteen months ago I was sitting at my computer reading through all of these posts wondering if I should risk my life (surgery freaks me out) in the hope that maybe I could lose weight with a sleeve. I am now totally in the group of people that can say that the only thing I regret is that I didn't do it sooner. I have 8 pounds to my original goal and 18 pounds to 119 which was always my goal when I was younger. Fingers-crossed I will get to make my third posting sometime soon!

Thanks to everyone for all of their postings over the last year- it has been nice to not feel alone on the sleeve journey! :)

@@AvaFern I have 71 pounds to lose until I hit the "normal" weight. But my personal goal is 90 or maybe 100 (but that's pushing it). I have lost only 10 pounds pre-op but I hope that I will be as successful as you with the surgery.

Congratulations on your accomplishments! I hope you reach your final goal soon! ????

Congrats to everyone. I am waiting on my approval now, and I'd be lying if I said I haven't been having second thoughts, but your stories have inspired me to keep going.

      Hey October Surgery friends...how are you doing? I've lost 15 lbs since surgery on 18th.42 lbs overall. Wearing clothes that feel great. Had a bout of cold and stomach flu and still having some nausea off and on after that but getting better, I think. 
      Seems like I fill up and have minor pain quicker when I eat hot foods rather than cold. Anyone else notice this?
      Still sooo glad I did this.
