I turned 50 about 2 months after my surgery. I can't tell you if it came off slower than someone younger than me but what I do know is it came off faster and more consistently than any other diet I have been on.

Best of luck on your journey!

I’m 52 and was sleeved on 10/10/18. I’m probably losing slower than younger people but I really don’t compare. I’m just happy I’m losing!! Last week I finally hit the 200’s for the first time in FOREVER and I feel awesome! My surgery weight was 327 (highest was 365) and currently 295!

I had my sleeve on 11/27 and will be 66 12/23. It will be interesting to see what the weight loss is like compared to what I see with the younger set.

I just turned 50 in May and I'm being sleeved this Friday December 7, 2018 and I'm wondering if the weight loss is slower or harder after the sleeve for the 50 and up crew....

I'm really glad you asked that question because I'm 51 and wondered the same thing. I've already gone through menopause and that is one of the big reasons I put a lot of weight on. I figured it was going to be extra hard for my body to give up the weight.

I’m part of the “aged like fine wine” group too at 52 😉 it’s great to see the news is good weight loss wise! I was kind of worried if I could lose well. My sleeve is Dec 12th too. 🍀

I'm 50. I started losing weight in June and I was sleeved on 30th June. I've lost 81 lbs so far. I don't know whether that's fast or slow, but it's good enough for me! I'm so pleased about my lower back pain going since the op - that alone makes it all worthwhile.
