wow I haven't been here for years but but happened to this group. This group was my main support line. Where I went everyday for answers. There use to be at least 10 new post a day now only 1 every month if that. I do miss my old friends on here. For your Newbies this place was the best forum before. Make it your own. You only have a small window with this surgery.

The "normal" response would be a BMI of under 40.. but this forum was always open to all.

Yes, I was lucky when I started on my journey this forum was VERY active. I got all my support here as I didn't live close to my Surgeon's office.

Hi I'm going to try the weights in my bra. I'm just wondering if I should remove them before the doctor come in

it's for people who don't have that much to lose. I don't know if there's a limit, but I'm guessing under 100 lbs (maybe even less than that). A lot of these forums aren't very active anymore, though. Check out the main forum or the one for your type of surgery - those are still pretty active.

Just looking at the Obesity Help site and saw that there is a light weight forum. Who is this for?

I'm thinking it might be for those who had under a certain amount to weigh?

Let me know!
