    Leo at 299 pounds

    From the album: After Surgery

  6. It has been an amazing journey since I embarked on weight loss surgery. I started my journey June 2, 2010 on the pre-op diet that was prescribed to me by Dr. Garth Davis. I had gastric sleeve sugery on July 2, 2010. As of today I have lost a total of 105 pounds and I have 103 pounds left to reach my goal. I no longer take cholestrol medicine, sleep with a breathing machine, blood pressure medicine has been reduced to half, and I am able to do cardio for up to two hours a day. I cut up my Casual Male card and I now shop at Marshalls, Ross, and TJ Max. Although when I look in the mirror I am unable to see the change but my clothes and pictures tell a different story. I will post new pictures when I reach 299 pounds. That should be no later than next Monday.

    Half Way Point 105 Pounds Down

    I started my journey on June 2, 2010. I began a liquid protien diet a month before my surgery. I went from 408 to 364 the day of my surgery July 2, 2010. I am currenly 296 and dropping. I should reach my goal of 200 pounds by January 1, 2011. I never really had a problem losing weight I just had a problem keeping it off. I have always been athletic up until 3 years ago but I am getting back in shape. I am almost in the best condition of my life. I believe it is the cardio that has helped me to lose as fast as I have. Believe me one hour of cardio does wonders for the body. I know you are going to do well in your training. Kepp me posted on how you are progressing. Your Friend Leo

    Half Way Point 105 Pounds Down

    Hello Bdoreus, Thank you for the compliment and it is very encouraging to get responses from so many people on this site. My diet consist of lean Protein and green vegetables. I also perform one hour of cardio exercise 6 days a week, strength training three days a week. chicken is my favorite so pretty much have it for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. I am always trying to get at least 80 grams of protien in a day. I am not so much concerned about the calories. I stay away bread, rice, Pasta, and most fruits, except grapes, and grapefruit.
  9. I have just crossed over to 299 pounds. I have not been this weight since 2002. I am now 99 pounds away from my goal. I am so excited.

    NSV shout outs

    On Friday I went shopping at my usual clothing store Casual Male. I noticed that everything I tried on was too big, then I realized that I cannot shop at this store anymore. I went to SteinMart and purchased an outfit for church at the same price that I would have paid for a pair of pants at Casual Male.

    1st day back to work

    Today was my first day back to work also. I am 20 days post op. I know you are going to do well with the sleeve. Whenever the old habits rear their ugly head just find something to take your mind of it. Also if you think about eating something that is not good for tke the money you would have spent on food and save it to bu a new outfit. I tried it and was able to pay my tuition for grad school. I will be praying for your success. Be Blessed Leo

    Today is the Day

    Dr. Garth is a wonderful doctor. What you see on TV is exactly how he is in real life. I am glad that he performed the surgery on me. It took less than an hour and he was done. His father Dr. Robert Garth met with me on yesterday just to see how I was doing and to release me from the hospital. They are both great doctors.
  22. Today is my day to have surgery. I am excited and I would like to say thanks to everyone on this forum that gave me advice in helping me make this decision. My prayers are with those that are in recovery and have upcoming surgeries.

    Today is the Day

    Thank you everyone for your thoughts and prayers. I am home now and it has been an experience. I going to take it easy and get some rest for now.
  24. Is anyone haing surgery on July 2, 2010? I am looking forward to the surgery however I am feeling a little anxiety. I know that the doctor should have no probem performing the surgery since I have dropped 44lbs since I have been on my pre-op diet. I am feeling so much better and I have been excercising 6 days a week for one hour.
  25. Julie, I will be praying for you that your surgery will go well and I know God will see you through. Let me know how you are doing once you return.
