Any Gastric Sleevers 300 pounds or less before surgery lose 100 pounds afterwards?



Recommended Posts

I find it hard to find 100 pound success stories among Gastric Sleeve's that were at 300 or less on surgery day. I have found people that loss 100 but they loss 25 or more pre surgery for the 100 total. I'm looking for 300 pounds or less people those that lost at least 100 pounds after surgery. My doctor say I can expect to lose about 100 - 120 pounds after surgery if I stick to the plan.. but I don't believe it because I can't find any GS people that have done it. So if you did it please post so I can be encouraged and believe it is possible, thanks!

I'm having the same concern as you are. I started at 233 right now I'm at 228 what's a tentative surgery date September 24th. I see a couple people I know that had this procedure what's in the last couple of years they lost some weight but are still way over weight! I'm just really concerned that I have this procedure and only lose like 30 pounds!

Thanks for posting. I'm interested, too. I'd like to lose about 110 post-surgery.

I’m in that vicinity, I was 304 at the start and 296 at surgery. It’ll be 6 months next week and I’m down to 216. Goal is 190 and I expect to hit that, though loss has slowed recently to 1-2 lbs per week due to lots of exercise (I’m building muscle while I lose fat). 100 lbs is definitely doable.

Count me in - I was 292 at surgery time, hit goal of 190 at about seven and a half months (after slowing things down at six months to keep from over shooting the mark too far) and eventually hit 185 before correcting it to 190ish. I could have taken it lower but that would have meant losing too much muscle mass rather than fat,

Hi,

im 89 pounds out in 2 months and 28 days, it is posible I’ve been going to the gym 5 days a week and sticking to my diet and new way of life I had what I thought was an unrealistic goal of 100 pounds in 3 months guess I’ll be short 10 pounds btw I was 300 pounds when I went into surgery on March 5 I’m 211 today

I am just outside your limits

HW326

SW319

the rest you can see on the left

followed plan strictly. at 10 months i still dont break 1k calories and i keep carbs below 50g and sugar below 10g per day. i work out every other day. i am still dropping 8+ pounds a month so it works for me.

and yes i am just a bit over the top with this whole thing but hey i was over the top with food why not try the other side for the second half of my life :)

I’m not at exactly 100 lbs yet but I started at 256.4 on the day of surgery. I’m 6.5 months out and have lost 99.2 lbs so far just from surgery. I’ve got another 30 lbs I’d like to lose before I hit my 1 year out.

I didn't do a pre-op diet. I started at 232, ended at 135; 97 lbs lost. It's seven years later and this morning I weighed 137. It is possible.

Everything and Anything is possible! Even after surgery, stay away from sugars. Aim for 6g or less for each sitting. Weight training helps.

Starting weight: 350lb

Surgery gastric sleeve weight (2-17-17): 325lb

Tummy Tuck on 12-22-2017 and ~ 10lb of excess skin removed

Weight at one year (3-17-18): 175lb

Total weight loss: 175lb

      Today was a really tough day and I turned to food (and a watered down glass of wine). The interesting part was that I felt REALLY full after eating half my go to cheat snack, tortilla chips with cheese. So the GBP is doing its job!

      The only way I can tell that I'm losing weight is from the scale and my clothes "getting bigger".

      I can now buy clothes in normal stores again. Admittedly the first time when I started trying on clothes, I really had to keep myself calm. Normally trying on clothes causes me to become SOOO depressed that it take weeks just to get over it. Now, I have to keep myself from not wanting to buy everything!
