Shocking Photos!!! The Incredible Shrinking Man

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.
