Anyone end up with a normal BMI after weightless surgery?



Recommended Posts

I'm in a 39 BMI and I just wanted to know if it was possible to reach a normal BMI after weightloss surgery. If you have, in what BMI did you start off on?

I started BMI 39..5 it's been 6.5months and at present I am 6lbs away from normal BMI So a total loss of 72lbs already. These last 6lbs are killing me so I would just like to hit normal once. Honestly I am so happy it's okay if I don't.

Look through the maintenance forum posts and look at the tickers at the bottom of the posts. You will be able to see the starting and ending BMIs very easily, and you will find that there are many, many folks here who ended up with normal BMIs after surgery.

Started my journey at 43.9 bmi

Currently just made it into the overweight category at 29.9 after 15 weeks :)

But I feel bmi is a vague scale based on what my doctor and dietitian says for my ideal weight I may not even get into normal bmi.

currently at 220 my ideal goal is 190 which is 25.7 so it's weird...

My highest recorded wt (242 lbs) was a BMI Of 48.8. My starting wt with my bariatric surgeon (229 lbs) was a BMI of 46. I just recently reached my "ideal wt" (117 lbs) which means 100% of excess wt lost and I have a BMI of 23.6!

      6 Weeks Post Op!

      My world is drastically different! I now walk 3 to 4 miles a day and I’m constantly getting up to move my body! .

      I close my Apple Watch rings daily and about 4 to 6 days a week I double or triple them!

      I have been released to have all foods. When I reintroduce some I need to start at 1 ounce to see how “Tiny Tummy” likes it!

      I am not reintroducing sugars, coffee or junk! I did not pay close to $13,000 to fail! .

      I went to get follow up bloodwork done this week and my numbers are all in the perfect range! .

      This is my new world and I am happy it!

        Congratulations. It’s a great feeling when the weight disappears & you can start to do so much more. 😁

      @DaisyChainOz, @Arabesque ... am totally thinking of both of you this very moment as I watch the final set of the Millman-Federer match at the AO... I am riveted and literally screaming at the TV...

        I didn’t see it either but I wish I had now for both the battle on court & the ball tampering accusations flying around everywhere now.

      Went to see the Star Wars movie yesterday. (Glad I waited as no one else was in the cinema for the midday session - yes!) Hadn’t been to the cinema for a few months and OMG I suffered the most terrible butt pain.  So uncomfortable. Started after 30 mins. Was in the premium cinema so grabbed a cushion to sit on but it didn’t help. Ended up sitting sideways in the chair, stretched out on an ottoman. Soooo super glad no one else was there. Sometimes I do miss my old butt fat cushioning... but not really.
