I like to hear back from anyone on the petite size - how has your weight loss been with the sleeve? I'm 4'10 with a bmi of 37 and plan to get the sleeve this month.

I am 5’2” and I weighed 260 and BMI was 47.6 before I had my surgery 3/22/18. I now weigh 168. I take it day by day and weigh once a week on Thursday which was surgery day.

My weight loss has slowed down to 2-3 lbs a week now. I have not started a weight lifting/cardio workout yet. Should of done that in the beginning because of the loose skin.

I’m 5’1- my weight on the day of surgery was 256.6 lbs and my BMI was 48. It’s been almost 10 months since surgery, I’m down to 140.8 lbs and a BMI of 26.6. I went from a size 24 jeans to a 2.

i'm 5'0" my highest weight before sleeve was 200lbs. since May 29th I've lost 20 lbs. so i'm down a total of 40. hoping to lose at least another 40 over the next 8-12 months. At first I was loosing a lb a week, now down to 1 lb every 2 weeks. The slow down is a bummer, but i'm still pleased to be losing and not gaining. AND exercising gets easier with each lb lost. I love that!

Nice job. I am 5’2” started out at 260lbs down 100lbs 6 months for surgery. Doc says I can get down to 130-135lbs that seems really skinny to me.

I’m 5’ 2, I had a band to sleeve revision. My weight on the day of my sleeve surgery was 174. I am currently at 162.6... and have been for 2 weeks, this is the lowest I have ever gotten even with the band. It is slow going, hopefully I will start dropping again.
