    Disneytikifan got a reaction from Neoteric Verve in I Was In Tears This Morning   
    Congratulations! When I get to 299 they are going to have to put me in a straitjacket and shoot me with haldol. I am a good bit behind you but my starting stats were virtually the same. I have a 6 y/o son and we are going to disneyland in december. I am looking forward to riding the rides without trouble with him(i hope). I know that you are ecstatic and let me say again CONGRATULATIONS!!

    So I am 6'3 and started at 431. I am currently at 343. I picked 230 but would be ok at 250. When I was 22 y/o and running I weighed 210 and could count all my ribs. I am pleased so far. Hopefully some more guys will chime in.

    I talked with the bariatrics team. Almost everyone loses in a stair step pattern. People lose a bit and then are flat or may be up a few pounds. But over time the weight will come off. I feel so much better that even if it slows I still think that it is worth it. Keep your spirits up and do well!

    Relax, the weight will continue to come off. It is a marathon not a sprint. My surgeon says that everyone loses in a sawtooth fashion. You will do fine. You have done great so far!

    I had buyers remorse but I feel so much better and am off diabetes and htn meds. It is worth it. I wish I had done this sooner. A couple of friends warned me about buyers remorse. Good luck it takes awhile but it gets better! Much, much better!

    I appreciate this thank you for posting. I do well with medium filet with a steak sauce and the portion he has listed is perfect. Lots of times I tell the waiter to hold the sides since I usually don't eat them and I hate the idea of wasting the food.

    So, over the last three months, it's seemed like I was just stuck. I've barely lost 10 pounds, although I did drop 3 sizes. In that time, I've added in more and more exercise, really watched what I was eating and been pushing more Water. I've really looked hard for the NSVs and tried not to worry that my body was done. But, I was really getting frustrated because the weight loss had slowed down so much. I was so close to the 100 pounds lost mark and starting to think I'd never get there. In my head, I knew that this was a weight where I spent nearly 10 years on the way UP the scale and that I shouldn't get excited that it was taking me a while to drop below that point, but boy was it maddening!
    I'm happy to report that in the last few days, that stall has broken! I've lost 5 pounds in the last few days and it seems like my body and sleeve are cooperating again to drop more pounds! I'm also suddenly seeing more definition in areas that have been of particular interest to me (waist, collarbones, arms and legs). I don't know if my mindset changed, but I know that I have increased my exercise levels to where I'm doing nearly an hour of cardio per day, in 2 30 minute sessions, and I've been fairly strict on my carbs.
    So, YAY, the stall is broken!!! I'll take the NSVs, but it feels good to see that scale number dropping again, too.

    I just wanted to check in with you all, I don't come by as much anymore. I'm more at My Fitness Pal or Fitocracy but I do check in here from time to time. I'm always just a message away too. I do get emails when someone sends me a private message here.
    So, I just thought I'd tell all of you that I plan to become a Personal Trainer / Fitness Instructor / Nutritionist focusing on Bariatrics and Super Obese patients. Yeah... I sign up for Next Semester a few weeks. I know what I must do!!!
    Joel Osteens message really REALLY hit me the other day. It must happen!!!
    So, just as I have shared my story here with all of you, I will soon be sharing my story with thousands of others on a first hand basis. I really want to help EVERYONE SUCCEED!! I know it can be done, even if this is our first, third or five hundredth time working it.
    Blessings everyone!!! :wub:

    I'm 6 weeks out today and down 58 pounds. My NSV for yesterday was a surprise encore performance last night within minutes of the main performance. Maybe there is something to this testosterone thing? I have always been sorta up for around two....but only after a snack and an hours rest...lol. This was like being 21 again...daddy's back!

    Hi everyone! I weighed myself today and I am down 23 lbs since the surgery ( some may have been the 3 day pre op diet ) I had my surgery on April 3. I now weigh 272 from 295 . YAY.....
    I feel great. Still off work for another week . I am walking around lots, and enjoying my time off. Still odd little pains here and there. But good. Getting all my Protein and Water is getting easier every day. Still get tired and like a nap everyday... but feel awesome.

    We are half way there APRIL SLEEVERS! Congrats to everyone who went through with surgery and made it back to us safely! I hope everyone is doing well. I'm still wishing you all a speedy recovery and huge amount of weight loss. All I want to hear from my April sleevers is a story about the amount inches and lbs they loss! Lol
    I also created a thread that's in the post op section that explains 20 ways to get rid or tune up loose skin. Check I out, I guarantee that you will print it out and pin it up!

    So I wanted to send a prayer to everyone post op and a prayer to everyone prep. I am day 4 post op on clear liquids. I am getting in fluids ok and tolerating milk and Soups. I am nowhere near the target of 70 grams of Protein. The Protein Drinks all make me nauseated that I have tried so far. I have ordered Unjury Protein Powder to try. The pain is better and I haven't had any narcotics in 48 hours. I am still fairly weak but I am improving. One thing I think about is solid foods. Those are still a ways away. A final silly thought was is my sleeve big enough for me? I am a large framed 6'3" guy. Anyways, to everyone else, get well soon and to all those waiting good luck!

    I think I have been harder on myself than anyone else and I finally decided to go to the sleeve. When people ask I say," Haven't you heard that it cures diabetes and hypertension by changing the levels of stomach hormones?". This usually ends the discussion.
