Hey guys. I'm pre-op, probably having my surgery around February. I was 427 at heaviest. Now I'm down just below 400. Are there others around this weight post op DS with great results? What was/is your goal weight?

I was 400 when I had my band taken out and the switch part of this surgery done 12/26/15. (they could not do the sleeve portion due to scaring). I was 325 on 12/2/16 when they did the sleeve. I am now 300. my goal is just to be a normal size. I dont care the number persay.

I topped out at 425, pre-surgical diet got me to 385. Had my DS on 8/25/16, and today I am at 294. My goal is 195. There are rough days, but it has definitely been worth it. I hear that there is a 5-month plateau to watch out for, but I will just work the plan...I'm in this for the long haul.

      Currently waiting on a surgery date. Hope to hear soon. I have been fighting for the sleeve surgery for 10 years. I am so ready!

      How can a bowel movement make me lose almost 4 pounds? How much poo am I full of?

        I haven't pooped in a weed and I'd love a 4 pound poo right now lol

      2. ms.sss

        Lol, yeah, I've been known to drop 3-ish lbs after a good (and long awaited) poop.

        .....or even after a moderate to severe dumping episode. yikes.

        Those are championship cups for both you guys! :) I personally came up a 1.4lb winner this morning. ;) hehehehe.

      I met with my surgeon on Friday.. I've completed all my tests and all my nutrition meetings as well as meeting the weight loss requirements for my insurance. We are officially submitting to insurance for approval and I was given a surgery date of January 16th 2020 (13 days before my birthday!) Fingers crossed all goes through

      Ok, now im getting old...my body gets me up at my normal 5am dog walk even when it's the weekend, vacation, and most importantly when I'm sick. So now that I have more energy, my body wants to make sure I suffer even longer during the day when I have a cold! Damn being healthy again! (:D)

      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
