First question I have is Website for Dinner Medifast recipes....? Please Help!? Hoping for any answer. 2nd question I got is.. Hi everyone!.

I've been lurking on this site for about a week now, and I figured I should just join. I'll have my.

Surgery.

In just over 2 weeks, and time just seems to be going so slow!.

One concern/question I have is regarding my age. I'm 25 and I just feel like most people who have the.

Surgery.

Are a bit older, so I would appreciate any stories/advice/experiences from younger people..

Also, I'm 5'3" 315 pounds. If anyone with measurements like mine would care to share their weight loss timeline with me, I would appreciate it..

For now, I'm just enjoying.

Reading.

Everyone's posts. I'm sure I'll have specific questions in a couple weeks :).

Hi Kate!.

I am 35 but I know that there are definitely people your age in the group..

I don't have.

Surgery.

Until January but like Patricia said, I wish I had done it when I was your age..

I am 5'2" and 275 pounds so we are not too far apart in size. You fit in perfectly here. There are people bigger than you and smaller than you but what we all have in common is the experience of struggling with our weight and finally making the choice to get healthy using this tool of WLS..

You are not alone. You will find much love, support and great information with us..

-Jenny..

Best of luck to you!!.

I'd just say bravo to you for having the wisdom to know something is very wrong with your weight at such a young age. And FYI, shrinking your great big body down to size while your skin is still elastic is a big advantage. Yea big girl, you're going to be styling in notime!.

Love lucifer..

Welcome! I'm 27. I had.

Surgery.

On 09/23/10. I started the day of.

Surgery.

At 350. (I lost 15 lbs on my two week pre-op diet)I'm 5'5.I now weigh 308. That's 43 lbs in 8 weeks. I see people who lose more and people who lose less. But we are all going to get there. I have dropped two sizes and feel great. I definitely don't regret it for one moment...

Welcome! Yep, kudos to you for taking action to control your health before there is permanent damage to your body. You have a much better chance of your skin "snapping back," too..

I'm 43, 5 ft and was 300 at my heaviest. I lost 30 lbs before.

Surgery.

GBS was on Feb 10, '10. This morning I weighed 136 lbs. Goal (a healthy BMI) is 125..

Wish I'd given myself this gift years ago!!.

Welcome! I am 39 not anywhere near your age but I weighed 310 when I had the.

Surgery.

It has been 5 months and I am down 81 lbs. O think the younger you are the more elasticity your skin has so you might not get all the saggy skin that older people might. I wish I had this.

Surgery.

When I was twenty five. Good luck and keep asking the questions when you have one...
