Coming in here at 5'8 and a pre-surgery weight of about 360...with a goal weight of 145/150! Would LOVE to hear some stories of success from others who had a similar starting point and goal weight!
Thank you for any and all encouragement, well wishes and prayers. Nervous about surgery tomorrow yet excited...I have been wanting an RNY for over 14 years and FINALLY things have all come together---the money (my insurance has a total exclusion!) and child care set up, etc. Thank you all!
I had RNY 9 years ago (I was 42 when I had surgery and am 51 now). I am 5'7" tall. My highest weight was 339 and I maintain now around 140. You must know that keeping it off is a million times more difficult than losing it. Stay diligent every step of the way. We are never "cured".
