Low start BMI



Recommended Posts

Hello everyone.

I've been reading though the forum the past few days and found it really helpful.

im currently 192lb bmi 31. I should say I live in Cyprus and I would be paying for the op. They stitch the band in place so it doesn't slip. Has anyone had the band with a lower BMI? How did you find it? Im a real grazer and I'm partial to a large portion size so I'm hoping this might curb that.

I'd like to lose around 60lb and I'm really worried if I dont do something now I will continue to put on weight.

I haven't had the band. I am still undecided on what surgery I want to have but I wanted to say "Good Luck" with your journey.

Thank you so much. I'm now 100% decided on the band. I took some pictures of myself yesterday and was so shocked at what I saw!

I’m 4”11 I was banned in 2009 at 190 pounds. I think I was 180 when I was approved for the surgery. I lost about 64 pounds. I say “about” because I fluctuate a little bit like most people. So I guess you def can say I was successful as someone who was banned with a lower BMI. I try not to let my weight go above 127. 123 I guess is the most ideal weight for me. When I was 121 I looked too skinny on some parts of my body since it is hard to control where I lose and gain the fat from. My body is an apple shape. When banded they said, I had what is called “male-like obesity”. It funny I never even looked that up. I’m so curious now if that is even really a thing lol.
