While it applies to ALL surgeries, it's not an exact science. YOUR body will do what it wants. Just do your best. And after your surgery, STAY off the scale except for doctor appts for the first 3 months.Does this apply to all bariatric surgeries? If so can someone tell me if my numbers are right? Math is certainly not my forte...
I am 196 pounds now, going from band to sleeve on Wednesday. With band I reached 150 at my lowest and stayed there quite a bit. Slowly made it to 162-165 and stayed there until 2 years ago when i got unfilled so now back to 196.
According to BMI tables a 25 BMI at 5 feet is 128 (HA!). So 196-128 is 68 pounds excess weight.
So I should shoot to be:
179 lbs at 2 months (196-17)
162 lbs at 6 months (196-34)
156 lbs at 1 year (196-54)
