My highest weight was 401, so I just qualify for this thread! I am 2+ days post sleeve and so far no complications. The first 48hrs were ROUGH but then suddenly the clouds parted and I feel great!

I found this thread a motivation, so I figured I would add to it now that I'm officially post-sleeve.

I started off at 406 during my initial consult back in June. My insurance required a 6 month diet program, in which I lost 88lbs pre-op. My official surgery weight was 318 on 12/11/17, and as of this morning, I'm at 313.8.

Almost to TWOderland!!!

I’m liking all the comments on this thread! I started my weight loss off at 6’6” 485 pounds. At dr 1st consult I was 435. Gained back 10 lbs but will have it off long before my 6 week pre op Appt in January. Surgery for feb 14 17. It does take the edge off a bit reading where you guys have been threw all of it. Thanks

I started my whole weight loss journey @ 585 lbs was my heaviest at the time of surgery I was @ 521 lbs which was almost 9 months from my heaviest to surgery it took my doctor telling me that within 5 years if nothing changed I would be dead of either heart attack or just my body shutting down. At that point it lit a fire in my soul and under my ass to make things right I started reading and studying everything about my upcoming surgery and weight loss. It was difficult at first but once the weight started coming off it became easier so far after 7 months I am down 150 lbs and can’t wait for it to get even more

It's quite often the case, eh?

Hard truth from our family doctors or GPs that finally makes us sit up and take notice ... most often after half-hearted motivation to change and oodles or procrastination.

Good luck from here on!

Hearing the hard truth from my doctors is what set me on this path. My doctors were gentle but firm and really did not want to see me die of a heart attack or become impaired by a stroke. It's nice that they're firmly in my corner and care. My family has been mostly supportive, my father notwithstanding. But his lack of support really is a non-issue.

I am now at 435 and loving the difference.

Just weighed in today at the exercise physiologist's room at the gym ... registered 130.9 kg (or 384.93 pounds). That's 43.7 kg (or 96.3 pounds) down from 174.6 kg (or 288.58 pounds) on July 17 last year.

So, on today, the six month anniversary of my sleeve surgery, Thursday 12th October 2017 to Thursday 12th April 2018, I am very likely to pass the 100 pounds off milestone in the next 7 to 10 days.

Awesome work, Alchemist!

I started at 405 in June last year and am down to 251 this morning. Surgery was 12/11/17 but I had lost 88lbs pre-surg with changing habits before I got the sleeve. It's crazy how quickly this has gone!

      I am almost 8 weeks post op and I am down to 157 from 202. I have been struggling with nausea but not vomiting. Anyone else having this happen?

        After having horrendous nausea I did some reading and it seems quite common. Especially if you have ruled out eating too fast/too big a mouthful. Also drinking too soon will make you feel sick. I now take 2 antiemetics to help with my nausea, hopefully yours is just that you need to slow down eating etc

        What state are you in????

      Officially no longer over weight! Goal #1 reached! I'm now under 80kgs (176 lbs) at 179cm (5'10") and 10 months post-op and am over the moon. My weight at 79.9 kgs (176 lbs) gives me a BMI of 24.9 which means that I have a normal weight! OMG.
      I still want to lose about 16 lbs more though in order to get safely into the middle range to insure against that little regain that happens. The I have maintenence in front of me as well.
      BUT I have hit my first goal. Yeah me!!!

        Fantastic! That's such a great goal to reach and one I hope to get to this year as well.

      I had my gastric sleeve done September 10, 2020... I started out 330# before surgery.... I'm down to 260# now... I've been stalled out for over two months now.... I exercise when I can (Bad back/knees)... I follow my diet , get my protein and drink my water... But still not losing any weight... I've done everything I can think of to break the stall.... Even went back to liquid diet....  Sometimes I think this was a mistake having the surgery...

        sorry to hear that don't feel down. Maybe a reset meaning something new. I am in the process of having the surgery a second time. I had Lapland in 2012 removed in 2018 and I have gained everything back and some. When I stalled on lapband I had to do something new for me I joined a free boot camp and Zumba and then boom dropped 38 pounds in 2 months. I know you said bad back and knees so find something with your limits. But I think try something new I stalled for 8 months
