I am so excited! So... my height in this site and with my surgeon is listed at 5'4" as my surgeon rounds down (and here half inches are not possible to enter). But my REAL height is between 5'4.5" to 5'4.75" according to all my other doctor's offices and what I have always known it to be. So, periodically I put my real height into the National Institute of Health BMI calculator. Today I put in 5'4.5" in, and that has me at 24.9 for my bmi... which is the highest of the NORMAL WEIGHT BMI's! I am 12.6 pounds below my doctors goal weight of 160. And I am 12.4 pounds from my personal goal weight of 135. It will be interesting to see how long it takes to lose the last 12.4 pounds. I do hope I get there, but I am thrilled where I am now too... so any weight lost at this point and beyond is simply "bonus" for me.

I will be 5 months post op tomorrow. I have lost a total of 46 inches as of 2/1/2020 (all measurements together, neck, chest, waist, hips, thighs and biceps). I wear mostly women's size 8 in pants, but I do have a couple size 6 pants that fit and look fine. I wear mostly women's medium tops, but some are looking a bit big and I can wear SOME size smalls. My weight loss has truly slowed down. I go many days with a 2-3 pound fluctuation, and then a little drop, then many days again with 2-3 pounds fluctuation. While I hate that the loss is slower, I know it is normal at this point. And the inches are still coming off, which is great. I am also so much more active than I was this time last year.

Congrats! I only have to lose one more pound and I go from being obese to merely overweight, and I consider THAT an accomplishment! But to be normal, WOW!

And now with my listed height at 5'4" height (because I can't do partial inches like 8'4.75") I am in the normal weight range! And I am 9.2 pounds from my goal of 135.

      I am now 10 days post op and I am down 16lbs. I had an allergic reaction to the glue my doctor used so I am still sore and trying to keep moving to not get stiff.

      Hello,  I am brand new on here. 
      The doctor qualified me yesterday for the surgery, so now I have to take 12 weeks of education classes and then he said they will schedule the surgery 4-6 weeks after I complete the classes. 
      I am excited to start this new journey.

      Am at the half-way mark of the six month pre-op program.  So excited!  Got clearance from psychologist this morning, so I scheduled my surgery consult for early March.  It is becoming more real now.  Have lost 18 pounds so far, since I began this journey on 12/18/19.

      So months ago, the Kid thought it would be funny to create an account on here and troll me with it.  Figured out it was her a few days later, and had a laugh about it.  She's been trolling me on it ever since.
      This morning I went on to post something and realized after the fact that I posted using her account as she was on my laptop last night 🙄
      Trolling over, Kid.
