I would like to see a section for people who have less than 75 pounds to lose. We could be called "lite weights" or something simular. We have less to lose and lose slower than others so we could compare to others with the samer amounts to lose. We may lose so slow that we cause others to wonder if it is worth it. What do you think?

It seems to me that at some point, if the band works, everyone will have less than 75 lbs to lose.

Other than insurance approval and doctor willingness to perform the surgery, is there really a difference? Educate me!

I like that idea. I myself have 75 to lose. The Patient Advocate at for MIBC where i will be having surgery had the same goal 80lbs she reached her goal weight in 8-9 months, she looks great. So yes i think it is worth it. 75lbs is still a lot of weight to lose.

We need the support of others who are not losing large amounts of weight.I am four months out and feel like I am not doing well because I have not lost alot of weight compared to others.

I feel the same way, but we just have to realize that they do have more to lose than us. Hang in there and we are doing great!!

This was a good idea. With less weight to lose and doing so at a slower pace sometimes worries me. Of course going to the gym tonight. Just wish I had someone with me that can actually understand how hard this is sometimes.

I don't fall into this category, but I do support this. I see others starting at 215 or whatever that don't have as much to lose with the same concerns. But just remember, you'll get to your goal before us heavy weights do! So that's always a plus. Wish I had my surgery much sooner! Good luck!

Slow losers? It's not a race. No gold medals and 1 million bucks for the one who crosses the magic finish line called "normal weight" first.

      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.
