I had a BMI of 28 on surgery day 4/25/15. I followed no pre-op diet, I went to Mexico and self-paid. I am 7 weeks 3 days out and I have lost about 22 lbs. I was 5'7 183, today I am 161. It's not all unicorns and rainbows though. Some days I am exasperated at my inability to eat. food comes up out of my esophagus with a mere opening of my mouth. It's a struggle. Do your research. It's a big decision.

Hi Ladies. I'm happy to find others with low BMI's like myself. My BMI is 36. My current weight is between 205-210 (largest weight ever). I'm very unhappy and depressed. I am also concerned about loosing too much weight. I enjoy my curves but not at this point. My first appointment is June 22. I will be self paying as well.

I haven't had it done yet, but I'm scheduled for 6/28 w/Dr. Ortiz in Tijuana! I'm also a RN. I feel I'm being proactive - rather than watch the scale continue to go up, I want to do something NOW (I've taken diet pills for years, I'm sick of it).

Good luck! Please keep us updated! I can't find a whole lot of people who have had it done at a lower BMI so I am not sure what to expect.

26 days out, feeling great. SW 200 CW 182. No problems at all other than needing to be more creative with mushy foods. Can't eat much and averaging 600 calories per day, but no vomiting, slimes or pain!

      So my surgery anniversary date is on the 24th of this month, but I had my 1-year follow up early with my surgeon this morning (I have another 1-year followup at the hospital on Monday to get my bloodwork and labs done).
      Anyhoo...my surgeon was very pleased with my results (and so where the office staff apparently, because 3 of the front desk ladies came by my exam room to give me props/high fives/generally gawk at me).
      But get this: he asked if I would be willing to come in for a future photoshoot so that I could be on a poster! And I was all, ummmm....no thanks, LOL.

        I guess I could, but the idea of being out there for all to see just skeeves me out! Nope, not for me ;)

      Today was a really tough day and I turned to food (and a watered down glass of wine). The interesting part was that I felt REALLY full after eating half my go to cheat snack, tortilla chips with cheese. So the GBP is doing its job!

      The only way I can tell that I'm losing weight is from the scale and my clothes "getting bigger".
