One reddit user's weight loss journey from 441 pounds to 222 pounds over two years with a gastric sleeve surgery has inspired many. We dive into her story to see how she managed to lose more than half her weight.

The Gastric Sleeve Surgery

In 2018, the user, who has chosen to remain anonymous, opted for the gastric sleeve surgery, also known as sleeve gastrectomy. The surgery involves removing a large portion of the stomach so that the new stomach has a smaller capacity. This results in reduced hunger and fewer cravings, which can aid weight loss.

The Weight Loss Journey

Following the surgery, the user had to adapt to a new lifestyle, including a strict diet, regular exercise, and lots of water. She began with a liquid diet and gradually moved on to solid foods. One of her key strategies was to track her food intake, which helped her remain accountable and make healthier choices.

The Results

Fast forward two years, and the user has lost over 200 pounds, going from 441 pounds to 222 pounds. Her new lifestyle of regular exercise, healthy eating, and being mindful of her portions has become her norm. Her story serves as an inspiration to anyone who may be struggling with weight loss.


Losing weight can be challenging for many, but this reddit user's story shows that it is possible with the right tools, resources, and mindset. While gastric sleeve surgery may not be an option for everyone, adopting healthy lifestyle habits, such as regular exercise and mindful eating, can lead to sustainable weight loss. If you are struggling with weight loss, consider seeking support from friends, family, or professionals, and remember to be patient and kind to yourself along the way.
