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.

      Yesterday I "officially" eclipsed the 100 lb mark.  I'm sure if you're in any other country than the US, the 45.3 kg mark doesn't sound as much of a milestone, but it's very cathartic for me to post that I hit it. 
      I recently read back through both my BP status updates and my private journal and hitting this milestone makes all the things I "worried" about seem stupid, but I know they're not stupid because they were very real at the time.  Also, I think if I didn't give these fears my full attention, I may not have been as successful as I have been to date.
      I'm about 50 more pounds off my end goal and I know that will not be the end, I will continue to strive for bettering myself in both physical and emotional ways.  I have to hunker down and get this done. 
      I'm noticing if I don't exercise every day, the weight loss stalls quite a bit.  I'm not really into the 80/20 theory with diet and exercise, I think there's a genetic modifier that needs to be applied and it's different for everyone, just my opinion... don't hold it against me.

      RE: the running/training
      Honestly it started with me just doing laps around the kitchen that first post-op week.
      In a week, I graduated to walking up and down my street, then to walking around the block every day.
      The distance increased, then the speed.
      Then I started running little spurts during my walks, then to alternating 1km runs with 1km walks.
      And now I can do a continuous 10k (which I totally did for the first time this morning...so full of myself about it today, it’s disgusting.)
      Just do something everyday and slowly increase speed and duration, next thing you know you’ll be one of those odd “running people” (who I never understood pre-op, but now totally get, lol)

        Happy Sunday! I like weird people. Normal people are boring! :) I began following you and wanted to know if there are any other members you would recommend? My surgery is 8/29/19 and I want to learn as much as possible. Have a great day and thanks so much for the website.

        I love it! Thanks!
