You are going to lose a large amount of weight, way more than 60 pounds. As the ladies have said there will probably be some bounce back and say if you end up at 175 vs 135-145 (not sure where your ideal/goal weight would be) you can't be too upset with that. Personally I went into this 98% for health reason and about 2% for weight loss (who doesn't want to be thinner) and I said if I ended up 225-240 I would be very happy as long as I was healthy. Well right now I am bouncing 180-183 and not healthy. I like my weight and how my body looks/clothes fit for the most part, but if I need to be 200-210 to be healthy then bring that motherfarker on! I will be 3 years post op in September and I know as I get as far out from surgery as Diana and Spikey are that it will be more of a battle. That being said, I can't see myself ever getting back anywhere near 300 lbs.
