I have a friend who had a gastric bypass last year. She went from 263 to 155 lbs in 6 months. She's 5'7" by the way.
In the last 3 months,she has dropped to 110 lbs,and quite frankly,has started to look like a Holocaust survivor. 2 weeks ago she had a tummy tuck,so she's probably even lighter now. A few days ago,she passed out and hit her head,and her kids had to call 911. She blamed it on doing too much too soon after her surgery,but at the time she was doing dishes.
At 135,she looked wonderful,and healthy
Our mutual friend J wrote a post about Body Dysmorphic Disorder,and didn't name names,but I knew she was referring to our friend,so i messaged her. We're both dying to say something,but how do you tell some one you think they have BDD and anorexia? The thing that really grinds my gears is that everyone is egging her on and telling her she looks gorgeous.Would you contact her husband?

TLC has a series called, "My 600 lb life".
They have done a 2 hour? special on this woman.
She had the same issue.
She is back to a healthier weight but at one point she was just...ick from the weight loss.
Perhaps a little research may help you make a decision.
