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!

      At my Primary Physician appt, the Doc said you know you lost a whole person. When you started seeing me you were 265lbs now you're 148lbs.
      She's right... I lost the fun me 😂 Joking Joking Joking. It's amazing who keeps track when you don't like insurance and browsers feeds

      Siri: I don't think it's raining at the moment.
      Wet Dogs: Then why are we wet? This damn Siri person is more stupid than we are.
