    Default New with a question

    Hey guys! I had my surgery on 2/23 and feel the best I have in years!
    My question is when someone asks "How much have you lost?" Do you give them the number from the very beginning to include the preop weightloss or do you give them the weight lost since surgery?

    Thanks!!

    I use the date I started the six month pathway to gastric sleeve surgery. I had to work hard to lose that weight too! My surgeon uses my first weight in at his office when figuring total weight loss. I believe it's your preference. No right or wrong in my opinion.

    As hen said, you couldn't go wrong either way. You can give your weight near preop, I think it would help.
