Anyone around 5'3-5'5 and weight 250-270 how much weight did you lose in your first 6 months


13 posts in this topic

I'm 5'3". In April when my first appt with surgeon was, I was at 252. I lost weight pre surgery and was 231 a week before surgery.

I am now 5 weeks post RNY, and I weigh 198!

I urge you not to compare to other people though. I was worried about whether I was losing enough after 3 weeks, and that's the advice I got.

My surgeon says women lose a few pounds, then go several days without loss and then lose a few more, and so on. This has been the case for me.

Surgery is driving your weight loss. Do what your team recommends and you'll do great.

My goal is about 120 I think... That's a healthy BMI. I could probably go even lower, but we will see how 120 looks and feels!

5'3"

High weight - April 2016 271.5 (there may have been times when it was higher, but that's the highest recorded.)

Surgery Weight 246.9 on August 23, 2016

Current Weight 172.3 - 99.x pounds - I want to get into the 150s. I've been stuck for about 2 months, but I'm putting on a lot of muscle -

I'm down from barely fitting into size 22 pants and 2XL tops to wearing size 10 and 8 pants and L and M tops. I am about a week from my surgiversary.

I'm 5'2" weighed 275+ at my highest. Less than a year post-op, I reached goal. Have been maintaining 120-122 for over 4 years now. Was a tight size 4X, been a size 00-0 ever since reaching goal.

At first maintenance was VERY challenging! I think I've now figured out the right balance for me, so it's getting easier. I will always be vigilant about my food choices and exercise. But I'm very happy with how i'm eating & LOVE working out!!

I would say maintenance is way harder than the weight loss phase
