Recommended Posts

I'm only 5 feet just over a year ago weighd 240. Lost 41 lbs before surgery CW 182. Is there any other petite losers out here? I have been told the weight loss would be slower. Would love to hear other expetiences.

Hi there

We aren’t far apart - I started at 234, and am now 135-137 - nice and stable now for 9 months. I hit my goal, which was 154ish, in 6 months. I did work the thing pretty hard and seldom strayed from the eating plan, and honestly my loss was no slower than anyone else’s.

I had previously had a gastric band which broke and I had slowly regained about 7-10lbs a year and was approachingbpre-band weight so had a bypass. I knew this was my last shot, so went for it! Totally reshaped my eating and started exercising. Started with an electric bicycle and, once some weight was off, started the Couch 2 5k app to start running. I run 3x a week now, cycle 3x a week, and gym 3-4 times a week. I love having lovely curves muscles now!

You can do it - pick up sheer bloody-minded determination to bust a gut for 6 months over this (not literally of course!) and you’ll not be far off being able to try on every outfit in every shop!

That is fabulous! I go to the pool for intense Water aerobics 5 days a week and do a lot of hiking. Maybe in the winter i will go the gym. My daughter is getting married in a month I'm putting of to the last min buying a dress hoping i lose more by then. Thank you for the encouragement. [emoji1]

My bypass was June 21st 2018. I started at 227 and now weigh 133. Honestly I don't want to lose anymore seeing I am 5"2. I eat what I want just cant eat much. I never seem to get hungry or at least not the hungry I've always been used to all my life. I have more energy than I've had in years and love being able to wear smaller cloths.

I do have daily diarrhea no matter what I eat or how much. I hope this isn't something I'll have to deal with the rest of my life.

Best of luck to you!!

Hi Tracydawn, I am also 5 ft. I had GS surgery December 2018. Almost 4 1/2 months out now - I have lost 72 pounds. I am very strict (nothing processed) three small meals a day with no snacking. I walk every day. Very active with my business. Eat out regularly for business lunches usually ordering a small salad or shrimp cocktail (can only eat three shrimp) etc. And, of course, lots of Water and I enjoy hot Decaf tea with 1% milk later in the evenings. I don't experience stalls and very happy about my pace. I suspect there are others who loose slower or faster... So, I don't compare. Every body is different. The key for me has been to eat a variety of healthy, high quality nutrition fresh as possible and remain well-hydrated. The water is imperative to flushing out fat deposits, and I believe keeping my body on a steady downward course. You seem to be doing really well according to your stats. It will be an exciting ride! Continued success with each passing day toward your goal of 130! My goal too. Maybe by December 2019? :]

5"2 here, 6 months post bypass, now 156, lost 50 lbs (began at 220-ish) in the first 4 months. I lost it scary fast and have problems with alopecia now. I've had a hell of a time this past month losing which has been attributed to my body knowing this weight from the past. I have gained a lot of muscle though. I work out 5 times a week with 4 of those being with a trainer. I think everyone's journey is different.

Too many factors control if your loss is fast or slow.

I’m 5’5” High weight 254 current weight 133. My weight loss was fast. Six months is not the norm. Size 4 pants – Small/medium shirts.

I’m 5’ as well I tried to fight for surgery because I didn’t want to see over 200lbs again. Day of surgery I was 203lbs my highest 208lb. And BMI of 40. I cannot exercise and have metabolic disorders.

I think as of this morning I might have hit a total 70lb loss. My surgery was April 29th. I started to log my weight daily on a calendar and take daily notes of weight, what I eat, calories and Protein. I do stick to a certain calorie range and usually average between 50-60 grams protein. I try to vary what I eat and the calories/protein sometimes a little more sometimes a little less. I’m still trying to add new things. But make sure protein is priority.

i honestly didn’t think I would get this far. I had gastric bypass surgery and gallbladder removal (my gallbladder had chronic inflammation)

I started at 255 and I have lost VERY slowly. I am also past menopause so my metabolism isnt great. At 9 months I'm still 30 pounds away from my goal of 150 and it makes me sad sometimes. I see so many people here that have lost all their weight in 6 months. Im doing the best I can but some days its hard.

      I baked a gross of (144) chocolate chip cookies for the coffee break (fika) at work. The cool part was that I managed to not eat a single one of them. Not only that but I finished with my baking by 11pm and got up at 5am for my doggie walk before work. This time it was MUCH easier to skip the cookies since I was thinking about dumping in the back of my mind. That and the damn gremlins (oops I mean  grehlins) are on vacation at the moment.
