My BMI is currently 49.6. I am happy it is under 50 that is so awesome. At my highest weight my BMI was 63.4. The day I saw surgeon first time it was 62.8 and the day of surgery it was 56.2. I cant't wait till I can say it's 45 or 40.

I have tried shredded roasted chicken and my stomach did not take it so well. I have been vomiting everything up since trying the chicken. I first tried it around 4pm. Even water comes up.
