Two days before my surgery I turned 60. I wish this surgery would have been available when I was 40 and maybe the last 20 years of my life would not have been so difficult. In 2004 I weighed 497 and had tried for the past 12 years to lose on my own. Since then I got down on my own to 315. Since surgery which was Jan 26th 2016 I have lost 67 more pounds for a total lost of 249 pounds. Today I weigh less than the weight I have lost.

I was 23 when I had my bypass last August. My highest weight two years ago was 442 (well, highest recorded weight. I have a strong feeling I was heavier than that). I was 387 the day of surgery, and today I weigh 221. I've lost exactly half my weight... according to the records, anyway. :)

I was 36, just two weeks shy of my 37th birthday. I had the sleeve done. Highest weight was 376 in 2011. Surgery weight was 319 in September 2015 and current weight is 185.4 as of this morning.

I was 35. I am now 37. I lost 71 pounds in my first year post-op to reach my goal of 165. I have lost about 10 more pounds without really wanting to in the 10 months since then.

        Hello Joset, why haven't you been given a diet plan? Did you have your surgery in the UK? Every surgeon has a different diet, and no two people are on the same one. Weird I know. Contact your team if you can

        Mine was two weeks clear liquids

        Two weeks on soups, milk shakes and broths all with out lumps

        two weeks on pureed foods { I couldn't stomach this step }

        two weeks on soft foods like Protein yogurt, stewed mince and veg, soft scrambled eggs. Pate on hard crackers

        Then onto any food I fancied. If you struggle on any step or with any foods go back a step for a few days. Eggs, salmon and chicken are hard for beginners.

        Sorry I missed your original post, hope you are still on here.
