I was 332 when I started the preop diet. I’m 4 mons post op, and I’ve lost over 90lbs. The challenges are that it takes awhile for you to really see a difference. I was nearly 80lbs before I started getting compliments. My stomach is holding on for dear life. My legs, arms, and chest went right away.


I am always amazed when I see these comments 90 lbs ! I am also over 300 pounds and if Lose 90 lbs after four months, I will be shouting on the beach (still clothed mind you) but I am still throwing a party. Can you share what/how do you eat. Also, since this is a older post, do you have any other comments?

Hey ladies! I haven’t checked in in a bit but I’m really encouraged by everyone’s progress.!

Personally, I was sleeved on December 24th and I’m down 51 pounds since December 1st. I’ve already dropped a couple of sizes and I get complements everyday. I’m not sure how I feel about that, but it feels nice.

HW: 325
CW: 301 (Went through a rough breakup)

It's so encouraging to see everyone losing so much and living their lives! I can't wait to post updates!

Surgery on 2/18/19 weight at 327, and I’m shocked I weighed myself this morning (2/25/19) at 303! 😧 that’s 24 pounds in 7 days....everything inside of me tells me weight loss in that short amount of time only comes back on faster....but I have to break that thinking. Rny bypass just changed my life. I am shocked.

I was 383 before I started my program and had RnY on 8/26/18 I am 10 pounds away from my first 100 pounds down and it is so surreal. I have had to get different pieces of new clothing and take in some other pieces. Most of the people in my life have all been supportive of all of the changes. That has helped tremendously.

I am currently pre op but I started at 342 lbs.

My lowest was actually 186 but then some health issues, twin pregnancy and depression (I lost my father who I was extremely close to) got me back up to 285 in the past 4 years. I got to 186 without surgery but just couldn’t stay there.

My body has Yoyo’d so much. About a year and a half ago I went from 286 to 229 and then skyrocketed back up to 285 after conceiving twins.

My surgery is scheduled for 4/4/19 and I couldn’t be more excited.

Started this journey on 06/06/18 w/ gastric sleeve surgery. Down about 110lbs from pre-op weight of 320lbs. Weight loss has started to slow down bit but still happening. Best decision I have ever made. Life changing. ❤️

I had my surgery on February 21, and I started the 2-week pre-op liquid diet at 381.

I'm only down 18 lbs so far, but we'll see how I do!

I’m scheduled for bypass on 3/19 and I can’t wait! My highest weight was 320 lbs and I currently weigh 304 lbs. On Monday I have my pre-op class and I am pretty sure I will be starting my pre-op diet on Tuesday.
