3 Month Post-Op

Feb 09, 2007

So on Tuesday February 6th it was my 3 month post-op appointment and I went to visit my nurse and I was down 154 pounds from my start weight of 443. A big accomplishment in 3 months time. My fear was that I might be losing too fast, and the nurse did caution that some patients suffer from malnutrition because their bodies go into such great shock during the weight loss period. I am really excited and happy about the progress that I have made and hope to continue on the losing path. My goal weight is 220, and at first I thought that would be a longshot and a 1-2 year process to attain, but I am now thinking this might happen a lot sooner than I expected, which is a good thing, but I also understand its going to mean that my maintenance period would kickoff a lot sooner than expected and from what  I understand this is a very tough phase as well. Anyways, I am enjoying the change and the comments being received.

Broke the 300 lbs Barrier

As of this morning I weighed in at 298 signalling the first time in a long *ss time that I weighed under 300 pounds. This marks a major milestone accomplished in my journey. Only 78 more to go to get to my goal weight of 220.

So this morning I weighed in at 320 making my BMI be "Severly Obese" instead of "Morbidly Obese" which is a big win for me. So quickly its been 2 months and 5 days since my surgery and I have lost a total of 123 pounds (93 pounds since the surgery). I have no complaints so far and deep down I wish I would have made the decision to do this sooner. But I have come to the conclusion that we all deserve a big pat on our backs because the surgery is a tool, and its not a sure thing. You have to really work your butt off in order to achieve results. Anyways, talk to you all later.
