Hows everyone doing?

Today is my one year anniversary.  Last night I was so sad because I didnt make it to onederland.  Just a hair off but nonetheless didnt make it.  Today, I weighed in at 199.8.  Hey, it put me in onederland and Im a happy camper.  Im moving extremely slow but its still coming off, only a few pounds a month now and I have 49 more to go.

I need to update my picture now to.

How is everyone else doing?

Congrats on finally making it to onederland! and happy 1 year surgiversary! You are doing awesome keep up the good work! It's almost my 1 year surgiversary on the 20th. As of this morning I have lost 110lbs I was 298.6lbs and now I'm 188! This has been the best decision I have ever made for myself! I was hoping to be at goal by my surgiversary but I don't think I can lose 29lbs by the 20th. I came close though, hope I make it there by may.

Congrats to both of you! I wish I was in onderland, but hey I can't complain. My one year was March 2 and I've lose 143lbs. I'm at 220 right now and it's not coming off so I have to kick it in high gear to get to onderland. I'm very happy where I'm at but I am working hard at getting to 160ish. I have to give myself a pat on my back, I have not gone off my program one bit. I eat healthy every day and I refuse to go back to my old habits. People have asked me, how can you go a whole year without sugar, alcohol, soda, junk food etc. and I say becuase I did not put my body through this for nothing. I feel great and I'm so happy I had the surgery.
Congrats to all of us!!

Keep up the good work.  Congrats on the onederland when ever you reached it.  It sounds like we have all had awesome years and I am looking forward to another one.  I am amazed every day how much better and more healthy I am than I have ever been in my adult life and most of my teen years.  I would do it again in a flash!

My surgery was March 2. When I had my 1 year follow-up (purposely scheduled for March 2, at 10:45 am, 15 minutes off from when my surgery started last year), I weighed in at 243 pounds, subtracting 5 pounds for clothing. That puts me 97 pounds down from my pre-op testing weight of 340. I am working hard at getting down further. My ultimate (personal) goal is to get down to 200 pounds, but I'm not going to complain one bit if I don't get there, since, in my mind, I am a lot happier and healthier than a year ago.

Congrats!  Everyone is doing so good!  I will be one year out on March 18.  I made it to onederland right before Christmas.  Right now, I'm at about 192 on a good day!  My loss has slowed down, but that is to be expected.  Am down 101.8 from my heaviest, 81.2 from surgery.  Slow, but ok.  I exercise 5x/wk and am still keeping up with protein & vitamins.  All is well!

Thanks for posting your updates everyone!

Congratulations to all of us for making it to our one year mark!!  I am amazed daily at how much better I feel and how the quality of my life has changed.  I started out at just over 300 lbs and now I fluctuate between 147-149 for a total loss of about 152 lbs.  I was losing pretty consistently each month until Feb hit and then it was like I hit a brick wall.  I only lost .3 in that month and have been staying the same since, so I have a feeling this is where my body wants to stay, and that is okay with me. 

Keep up the great work every one!

I just realized I lost only 1# each month these last 3 months!  UGH!  However, I have lost 126# now, got my labs in the "normal" range.  I too wanted to be under 200# by now but it will happen.  I got to get in gear though.  Happy One Year Anniversary everyone!  Be proud of what you did accomplish!
