Shocking Photos!!! The Incredible Shrinking Man

Sept 13 2007

I had my wife make some new photos of me tonight and it is really shocking to me how much I've changed in just 7 months.  I am down 140 pounds and now weight close to 220.  The shirt in the photos taken tonight I bought off Ebay, size Large.  I am now wearing a size 38 pants and large shirts...WOW!

Things are going well.  I still feel great.  My energy level is great and I am able to eat more things now, which is good because I get hungry more than I did early on after surgery.  Luckily, with the smaller stomach, I don't eat as much.  I average between 800 and 1200 calories a day.  I used to do that at some meals before.  I still miss being able to eat a sandwich...still not able to handle soft breads.  Besides that, I am able to eat pretty much what I want.

Dr. Mailapur wants me to be at goal (172 pounds) by my one year check-up in February.  I hope to make it, but if I don't, I am not going to worry about it.  I absolutely feel great at this weight and if I were not to lose another pound, I would consider this experience a huge success.
