I know we are all different, but I’m curious how much weight you’ve lost.

I’m 5-weeks post op revision from vertical silastic ring to bypass.

I’ve lost 26 pounds.

Weight before pre-op diet: 240
Weight day of surgery: 230
Weight today: 214

First, the obligatory disclaimer: remember that everyone is different and will have different weight loss rates. Age, starting weight, genetics, height, complications all factor in to each person's weight loss rates.

Second, a thought: Instead of just total units lost, probably a more telling statistic would be maybe BMI (which factors in height), or Percentage of Total Body Weight Lost (but this doesn't take into account lean muscle changes...), or Percentage of Inches Lost in certain areas of body measurements (but everyone carries their weight differently...)

Lastly: Anyhoo, with that said, we are human after all, and we can't help but compare and be curious:

** Note that I am on the vertically-challenged side of 5' 1" **

Highest weight: 235.0 lbs (10-Oct-2018) BMI: 44.4 (morbidly obese)

Surgery weight: 223.2 lbs (24-Oct-2018)

Today's weight: 148.8 lbs (26-Mar-2019, 5 months + 2 days post op) BMI: 28.1 (overweight)
% of Body Weight Lost: 36.7% (-86.2 lbs)
% of inches lost chest: 25.0% (-12.0")
% of inches lost waist: 28.7% (-12.5")
% of inches lost hips: 22.2% (-11.0")

** Yes, I keep track of EVERYTHING. You should see my spreadsheet :) **

Thank you so much!
You definitely establish a new benchmark/standard on how to report weight loss!
And I am glad to see there are some fellow spreadsheet freaks in the forum.
I will have surgery on May 8th, and I promise I will be reporting based on "ms.sss" standard.
Cheers to all from Spain and thank you so much for sharing. I read almost each single of your comments and it gives a lot of energy and enthusiasm.

@med28thmed, here's how I do updates, from a phone: tap on the 3 lines top right corner on the screen, select "patients", select "my surgery," select the "my surgery with the 3 lines beside it, then select "progress." Fill in the blanks then save.

From a computer at the top of the screen, choose patients, my surgery and then to the left is progress...fill in the blanks then save.
