Any 5’5 through 5’9 ladies that started with 35bmi and under want to share before and after photos



Recommended Posts

Hi! I’m pre vsg. My surgery date is June 15th and I’m soooo ready and soooo not ready at the same time! I’m 5’6 and a half for those who count halves lol. My starting weight is 201. I fluctuate between 198 and 202... I’m considered a low BMI. I’m high risk for diabetes and didn’t want to go down the path I’ve seen my mother and my grandmother go down. So I thought if I had the opportunity to stop this now I should. I’m hopeing to see other women’s success with similar stats to mine for some motivation and to keep me from being too scared of what may come. Any ladies in this category if you have any tips or advice, I’m all ears! Excited to begin a new adventure in which I don’t get winded chasing my 4 year old, or have a hard time getting off the floor from playing with my 8 year old. Just hopeing for a new start.

And Good Luck to one and all Even if it takes a while to heal perfectly, we all will be better off and slimmer then we were before surgery happened.

I'm not quite your stats but fairly close, am 164cm and was 101.4kg when I had vsg 9 months ago. Because I was considered low BMI for surgery I wasn't able to get it on public funding had to pay privately (I'm in Southern Hemisphere). I'm down 34.5kg so far, would like to lose another 3-5kg, best money I ever spent. I am back to training heaps, lifting heavy and running, loving life. I'm also nearly 47 years old. It's a big decision to make, and not always easy at times, but can totally turn your life around ☺️

        What state are you in????

      Officially no longer over weight! Goal #1 reached! I'm now under 80kgs (176 lbs) at 179cm (5'10") and 10 months post-op and am over the moon. My weight at 79.9 kgs (176 lbs) gives me a BMI of 24.9 which means that I have a normal weight! OMG.
      I still want to lose about 16 lbs more though in order to get safely into the middle range to insure against that little regain that happens. The I have maintenence in front of me as well.
      BUT I have hit my first goal. Yeah me!!!

      I had my gastric sleeve done September 10, 2020... I started out 330# before surgery.... I'm down to 260# now... I've been stalled out for over two months now.... I exercise when I can (Bad back/knees)... I follow my diet , get my protein and drink my water... But still not losing any weight... I've done everything I can think of to break the stall.... Even went back to liquid diet....  Sometimes I think this was a mistake having the surgery...

        sorry to hear that don't feel down. Maybe a reset meaning something new. I am in the process of having the surgery a second time. I had Lapland in 2012 removed in 2018 and I have gained everything back and some. When I stalled on lapband I had to do something new for me I joined a free boot camp and Zumba and then boom dropped 38 pounds in 2 months. I know you said bad back and knees so find something with your limits. But I think try something new I stalled for 8 months
