Short Recap: Had my surgery on 8AUG08. Started the journey at 271 (highest weight measured) and got down to 144 by May09. In 2015, was back up to 241 at one point. On 15OCT16, restarted my journey at 235.
Its Now 19JUN17, 9 months after my re-commitment to my health, and my sleeve. As of this morning, I weigh 171.7#, down 69.3# since 15OCT16. My momentum has continued well. I have added a little treat once a week at the suggestion of my trainer. This keeps me from going whole hog when I do have something sweet and carby. I had the experience of eating three brownies from Papa John's and waking with a horrible hangover the next day. I don't drink alcohol, so it was definately the sugar/carbs. It was not pleasant.
I have another 20 to 30# I want to lose before I start leveling off for maintenance. I don't know how long it will take, but I'm in it to win it.
This is just a small testament that regain can be conquered.
