Hi! I had RNY Gastric Bypass on Feb. 1st, 2017, with Dr. David Lindsay at St. Joseph's in Toronto, Ontario.
I had to do 3 weeks of Optifast prior to surgery, starting on January 11th. I was 304 that day, and that is my starting weight. I am counting the 3 weeks of Opti in my total weight loss because as far as I'm concerned, that is when it all began.
I am down 57 Lbs as I write this, and hope to lose a whole lot more. My personal goal is 135-145, and my surgeon's goal for me is 165-180. My personal goal is jus a number that I needed to write down and not a dream or anything; I have no idea what i will look like at those weights as it's been so long. I think I'd be happy to get to size 9/10 or 11/12. I used to look great at size 14 but would like to get smaller than that because I was told everyone gains about 10-20 Lbs back after they hit their lowest weight.
