Hi anybody out there start this journey over 300 lbs? I see post from people in the 200 lb range but none from 300 lbs. On the day I was sleeved, I weighted 363 lbs now I am 4 weeks out and weight 327. How long did it take to get out of the 300s?

Congrats on your loss so far!!! I started at just over 300 at the weight of 316 on the day I went in for surgery and I am 2 and a half months out and am down to 247. I know you are ready to get out of the 300 I was feeling the same way at 316, but just keep up the good work and the weight will follow you will be in the 200s in not time best of luck to you :)

I started at 351--was sleeved on 8/13 and weighed in today at 297. I stared at the scale for what felt like 5 minutes. I haven't been in the 200s for years and years and years. It was a glorious feeling.

My starting weight (also my highest ever) was 380.5. As of this morning, I'm 353.5 but I haven't been sleeved yet. I've lost 28lbs on my pre-op diet. My doctor is requiring a 38lb loss so I've got 10 to go but it's coming off quick.

I'm being sleeved on 11/4.

At my first consult I was 345 in July. At my appt before starting my 2wk pre op, I was 335. I gained about 10 lbs after my pre op appt because I ate stuff that I would miss or couldn't have for a while. The day of surgery, 9/29/14, I weighed 324. I am currently at 311, and I cannot wait to hit 299. I have no idea when the last time I was under 300. If I had to guess it would be 2003 or so. I'm very much looking forward to see where I go from here. My heaviest ever was 375 and that was last fall.

Hi there!

I am also part of the 300 crew lol At consultation I was at my highest weight of 369, surgery day I weighed in at 321. I am already almost 3 weeks post op and have only lost 10 pounds which is slightly discouraging, but I am hoping to change that!

@@Idahospud, don't be disappointed. Look at where you are at now compared to back then. Everyone loses at different rates, hang in there it will happen.

315 at consult. Gorged on foods I'd miss so I was 320 when I started pre op. I dropped to 301 on surgery day which was 10/10. I was 294 this a.m., so down 7 lbs in about a week. A little annoyed at that. I know, I know-better than nothing/it'll get better. Still......

My highest weight was 423# about 11 years ago, I was 360# 1st consult visit in April. I now am 320# so I lost 100# before surgery and 40# of that since I started the Surgical Journey. I will be sleeved on Monday October 20th. Only God knows were I will end up, but I am convinced I will be more healthy!

      2 Days Till Surgery!   It's time! Time to start my clear liquids! I am prepared! Tomorrow I will only take in clear protein, bone broth and jello for the next two days.   My surgery will be done on Monday, December 9th at 8:00 AM. I have to be at the hospital at 5:30 AM (EWWW) but who cares? LOL. Funny how you don't get all upset about doing things that are not so fun when you are doing it for a purpose! . I don't plan on doing much this weekend. I have one errand to do and after that is over I will return to my hotel room and go into prayer and meditation. Believer or not, you got to do what you need to do in order to get your heart and mind in a healthy place. . I have a Pre-Op drink I ordered that is supposed to really help your body hydrate before surgery. It's not in the photo just because I don't have it in my hands yet. I will put photos of it up when I get it. . All I can think about it how blessed I am to be able to get this done. I know how it feels to be healthy and happy then have it snatched away. It makes this all the more joyful for me. . So, it's time to lay it down and start letting my mind process what we are getting ready to do. . By the way...funny story. My doc said he had to cancel a surgery because his patient said she thought "Mashed Potatoes" was a clear food! Um, there will be no mashed potatoes for me! LOL This is HAPPENING! . Last thought for today: I knew when they drew my blood yesterday it was going to leave a nasty bruise and I was right. I am so sensitive to that kind of stuff.

      Cold no.2 since surgery. The funny part is now Ive lost my voice. I feel better in my sinuses now, but my voice is 90% gone. Losing your voice as a person who talks as a teacher for a living is so funny. You feel normal and when you speak, nothing comes out. I hope it goes over by Monday, but if it doesn't oh well. Ill be at school and cant talk to the students. Oh gee darn.

        I hope it gets better. I sing and I know how it is to lose your voice. I always get scared that it won't come back. LOL but it always does. Try Fisherman's Friend. It's nasty but it works. You can find it on amazon.

        Ohh..I love fisherman's friend..especially the sugar-free ones. Here, we can get it in all the shops. They are strong though.

      Got my haircut today and its always amazing how much better i feel afterwards.
      i have always considered it an odd thing that i enjoy a haircut so much.
      The smell of the barbershop (no salons allowed) and the whole scissors and clippers feel and sound is so relaxing.
      I have had the same barber since 1987 and i am not sure how i will handle it if that guy ever dares to die on me. I am pretty sure that the magazines on the bottom of the stack are the same ones from my first visit.
      just started Ron Powers -Mark Twain Biography- enjoying it
