Well, I think you are doing something pretty awesome. Cuz others will be able to look at what you've done and be helped by it. Cuz all the time we read here about people needing a revision but are afraid to do it for fear of losing more weight! The struggle to maintain is real! ((hugs))

Thanks 💜 that's why i decided to try and share my experience.

I don't think I've seen many people needing a revision without hoping to lose more weight. When I was looking through threads it was usually a mix of GERD/substantial regain but that could be because they are the most vocal.

I can only think of 3 people needing revision while already at goal 😳

BMI 37, Score 50/70. Obese, recommended weight loss. It said my goal weight of 135 is overly aggressive. But, we’ll see. I’m halfway there now.

I actually take this score as winning. I am SO HAPPY to be out of the super morbidly obese range, forever. It feels like a huge weight has been lifted (har har har, I crack myself up).

I also loved being able to see their recommendation of losing weight, and instead of hanging my head like “I know, I know”, my mental dialogue was “on it!”. It’s comforting knowing that I’m utilizing the tool that is most likely to lead to long term success.

No of course there aren't as many, and many more are probably lurking. But I see it in the FB groups too. At least once per week, and that tells me it's bound to be a consideration.

I think being at goal and struggling to keep your weight up has got to be scary. (Although I would love to experience that for about a week... ;) ) And then to add to that a surgery that isn't only restrictive, but malabsorptive...Ring. Ring...Hello stress?? I'm gonna need a bigger boat...

Yeah, my goal weight according to charts would be 115. Which, uh, seems low.

      Losing 1.2kg/2.6lbs in a week seems to be a bit disappointing when in reality it is quite reasonable at about 5kg/11lbs per month. I think that I cant quite remember the last 30kg/65lbs. Oh the mind games we play!

      Yup, I did it! I RAN my SECOND continuous 5K ever this morning! There is an option to do a 10K Sunday morning and I'm going to give it a try. It's basically the 5K twice. Even though this is a girls' trip, I kinda wish Mr. was here so he could witness my awesomeness.
      @FluffyChix, no it wasn't on the beach nor was I wearing a bikini, but I think I should get bonus points anyway, just for doing it a second time 😎

        That's amazing, it must feel great!

        OMG! You are so inspiring! How did you get started with your training? Running/jogging a 5k is one of my goals as well. Your journey is truly wonderful.

      just got back from my 2 year check up and wanted to post.  The kcal drop has me worried and thinking i need to up the weights and trim back the cardio. Never saw myself as a person who cared for bulky muscles but the increased calorie burn from more muscle mass certainly wont hurt. 
      New goal for the next year i guess.
