How long has it been since your surgery?

How much weight did you lose?

I am getting sleeved mid-December and was told it is realistic to be losing 100+ pounds! I am surprised that could happen and want to know everyone's experiences.

Thanks!

I was 295 the day I started my preop diet. 18 months later I was 135 (down 160 pounds). 6 years later I typically run around 132-136.

I just had my surgery 3 days ago.... I started at 220 lbs preshakes. Feeling kinda lost , it's a scared journey I've already wanted to turn to food as it has been my comfort for most of my life.

Are you seeing a therapist? I couldn't have accomplished what I have without mine. More important than surgery itself, IMHO.

To the original poster, I was told that overall expectations are 60-70% excess weight loss (i.e. That over BMI more than 25) at 2yrs but obviously some will lose more, some less. It's pretty much up to you - it's not easy but it's easier for me than doing it without it and I am delighted with the results. (5.5 months out and feeling fabulous). Go into it with a positive attitude that you are going to learn to deal with your issues and just keep trying. Good luck.

To co-lyndee - the first few days are a roller coaster, the first few months are a total learning experience. Things will change over time - you will learn to deal with some things, you will find other things no longer a problem. It's the best thing I ever did (and lots of other people here). So take comfort in that - follow your instructions and look forward to a new life (albeit with different challenges). Good luck.

        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.
