Hard to believe it's been 10 months since our surgery month!!  Life is fabulous now!!

Here are my stats:

September 2nd I started my liquid pre-op diet and weighed 311 pounds.

Month 1 (9/2-10/2) 30 pounds lost
Month 2 (10/2-11/2) 18 pounds lost
Month 3 (11/2-12/2) 18 pounds lost
Month 4 (12/2-1/2) 14 pounds lost
Month 5 (1/2-2/2) 12 pounds lost
Month 6 (2/2-3/2) 9 pounds lost
Month 7 (3/2-4/2) 12 pounds lost
Month 8 (4/2-5/2) 9 pounds lost
Month 9 (5/2-6/2) 10 pounds lost
Month 10 (6/2-7/2) 8 pounds lost

I've lost 140 pounds since starting my pre-op liquid diet and 168 overall.

I now weigh 171 pounds with 12 more to go until I reach my personal goal of 159 (BMI of 24.9).  I posted updated pictures on my profile.

Hope everyone else is doing well!!

My calories have crept up to average 1000-1200 a day.  I have been eating too many carbs and simple sugars, particularly this week.  I only walked once this week.   I can't slip back into old habits.

Congrats on your success so far!!  I know what you mean about carbs catching up to us!!  I've been eating too many, too, but in the last 2 weeks I've managed to lose 6 pounds.  Don't know how that happened!!  lol

Revision on 09/22/10 with
I am 10 months out as of 9/24 and have lost a total of 120 pounds! At first I was thinking that wasn't enough, but now I realize that I still have a window of about 8 more months to lose the remaining 70 pounds that I want to lose to have a normal BMI.  This is only around 9 pounds/month.  I am remotivating myself to make sure I limit carbs, get PROTEIN AT ALL COSTS, take all vitamins, and get more exercise! Currently a size 14/16 down from a 24/26.  I LUV MY RNY!!!

I am losing around 9 lbs a month now.  Sounds like we are all losing at about the same rate.

WOW.. I am really proud of yall. I am just making my way around here! Its over whelming as a new member to find your way around here! But anyways.. Yall have done so well! I had my surgery one Sept 24, 2008. 

I started out at 228 and now am 134 to 139.  

I really need to get my  butt in gear yall. 

I am happy with where I am at! I know I am still considered a lil over weight because I am 5'2" .I think I am going to focus on getting more toned and trying to lose another 10#'s. its so hard though. I get in these 3 month long platues. Ughhh But I am still working it!!!
