I had my surgery (bypass) 6/11/12 so I just started on that goal.

I am proud to report I have met that goal! My start weight was 394  4-5-11 and my weight today 6-15-12 is 280!! My first weight goal is 230 by my anniversary date Oct. 10, 2012. We are thinking a good range for me is 165- 200 lbs. not sure where we will land however.

My experience has been very surprising and enlightening. I sometimes dont recognize myself or my " new" attitude about my healthy lifestyle. I have good days and bad days like everyone but I no longer choose to dwell on mistakes. I do however try to examine and determine why I made a " less than the best" choice. And then just Keep Moving Forward.

My WOW moment would be the day I weighed under 300 lbs! Its been over 15 years since that has happened. The next wow would be when I had released 80 lbs and I asked my trainer to help me lift the weight Id lost.... I could not lift it. And at the realization I was no longer carrying it around I was so very proud of myself and encouraged!!!

My advice or insight for others would be to use the resources that are available to us. Support group, drs, other medical professionals, youtube, obesity help, spark people have all been invaluable to me! I dont let "opinions" decide my medical decisions but I do use all those resources as a tool or knowledge base. Have fun on your journey, document your journey, the changes may seem like slow but you will look up and 6 mths, has gone by.

Finally honor the yourself by making your health a priority and take the best care ever!!

I need to make that a goal. It seemed so unrealistic before I had the surgery. So far, from my highest weight, I have lost 71 lbs, since the surgery (3 months ago), I have lost 62 lbs.

I will add that to my goal list right now...

**keeping my fingers crossed!!

I am just starting this journey. I will be having my initial consult soon. My goal is to loose 150 if I loose more that will be a plus for me...

I think you can do anything you believe you can do.  It is all your choice.  You will lose whatever you want.  Use the surgery as  tool not a solution. remember to walk and exercise and eat or take your protein.

Funny you should ask.....I am 3 pounds away from losing 100 pounds!!!!!!!!  I had my surgery on Feb 20th this year.  I would LOVE to lose another 50 pounds.  I started out weighing 340 pounds!!!! I am still in shock when I look in the mirror.   

Do you guys think another 50 is possible since I am only 4 months out???? :)
