I'm 5'0 and 218lbs. I heard that at these figures I will lose much slower.

Does anybody have any experience being short and in the lower 200's?

How fast did you lose? (I know a slower rate is best but realistically with WLS its different)

I'm getting Gastric Sleeve April 2018!!!!!!!!!! Yayy!!!!!!!

Congrats on getting your surgery date! very exciting.

Your rate of weight loss is going to be a unique experience to you. There is no way to predict how fast/slow your weight loss will be.

This is not a race. You will lose weight is what's important. :)

Weight loss is personalized to you, your body, how well you follow the program and willingness not to fail. Someone in my support group had posted this.

I'm 5'2 and started at 225, so similar to yours

I don't see how these numbers would make us lose slower, i think it's very individual and based on diet and exercise as well.

I'm only 5 days post sleeve so i can't say yet.

Good luck!

The reason I heard that it would be slower is we have a lot less to lose than say someone who is 300+ lbs. It is similar to why someone who is 125lbs finds it harder to lose 5 lbs because. I am much closer to my goal weight (not close enough, which is why I'm having the surgery) than someone heavier. Someone who is heavier could lose 60 pounds easily in 2-3 months after sleeve vs someon in lower 200's would only average around 20-30.

I am just wondering on other's whose statistics are closer to mine, how their experience has been for them thus far.

I look forward to hearing your guys' journeys.

I don't want to lose too fast to give my body to adjust to the size. Thank you so much I am very nervous!!!

I thought of that too, it might be less as a 300+ lbs person in the same amount of time, but it'll be relative still, that's what I'm expecting.
The way my dr put it is that the surgery will help you lose 70% of excess weight, and i would think I'll get there at the one year mark.

But this is an interesting thought that you brought up, let's stay in touch and see how this goes!!

This makes me feel better. I'm 3 months out and down 60. I thought I was losing too slowly.

I started at 370.

I'm 310 now.

Surgery was 11/21

Sorry, this was something a lady in my support group posted. I do not think her doctor had an idea for patients under 200 lbs starting.

Remember, no matter how slow you think you are losing. Progress is still progress.

Also, you can try dividing your weight loss. So you lost 20lbs a month average, 5lbs a week average. That is a great amount of loss.

Weightloss has been awsome. With bumps in the road. But generally good.

      Losing 1.2kg/2.6lbs in a week seems to be a bit disappointing when in reality it is quite reasonable at about 5kg/11lbs per month. I think that I cant quite remember the last 30kg/65lbs. Oh the mind games we play!

      Yup, I did it! I RAN my SECOND continuous 5K ever this morning! There is an option to do a 10K Sunday morning and I'm going to give it a try. It's basically the 5K twice. Even though this is a girls' trip, I kinda wish Mr. was here so he could witness my awesomeness.
      @FluffyChix, no it wasn't on the beach nor was I wearing a bikini, but I think I should get bonus points anyway, just for doing it a second time 😎

        That's amazing, it must feel great!

      3. Krestel

        OMG! You are so inspiring! How did you get started with your training? Running/jogging a 5k is one of my goals as well. Your journey is truly wonderful.

        Yay you!!! You're a rockstar girlie!!!

      just got back from my 2 year check up and wanted to post.  The kcal drop has me worried and thinking i need to up the weights and trim back the cardio. Never saw myself as a person who cared for bulky muscles but the increased calorie burn from more muscle mass certainly wont hurt. 
      New goal for the next year i guess.
