    Protein powder

    I have been using the Dymatize 100iso comes in a lot of different flavors Dymatize ISO100
  2. Took me two months after surgery to be able to drink coffee also if you haven’t tryed cold brew coffee it’s amazing. Cold brew coffee isn’t less acidic than hot brewed coffee so not as hard on a weak stomach or as upsetting it helped me plus it’s amazing in the spring and summer months.

    Sugar grams

    My nutritionist told me to limit my meals to 10g of sugar or less I am 9 months out and for my total daily sugar count using the MyFitnessPal app on my phone keeps track of the sugar each day and I usually get around 25-30g each day of sugars it’s just how I do my meals and I try to get those early on in my day so no to effect me later on in the day as a type 2 diabetic.

    Guys who started over 400 lbs.

    I started my whole weight loss journey @ 585 lbs was my heaviest at the time of surgery I was @ 521 lbs which was almost 9 months from my heaviest to surgery it took my doctor telling me that within 5 years if nothing changed I would be dead of either heart attack or just my body shutting down. At that point it lit a fire in my soul and under my ass to make things right I started reading and studying everything about my upcoming surgery and weight loss. It was difficult at first but once the weight started coming off it became easier so far after 7 months I am down 150 lbs and can’t wait for it to get even more

    Rate of weight loss?

    I am 3 months post op I started my weight lost surgery at 575lbs back in November 2016 and at the date of surgery I had got myself down to 521lbs. On my 3 month mark I took pictures and video of me weighing myself to make a record I had reached 420lbs. I am on a diet of 900 calories with the majority of my diet being 55% protien consisting of chicken fish and other lean meats and 25% fats (healthy fats) and 20% carbs. I am amazed at my progress so far and I am taking my weight loss so far because I was heavier that most but still taking it very serious.

    Emotional roller coaster

    I am 3 months post op and today was one of those days where I just woke up mad at myself and angry or feeling like haven't been doing enough even though I have lost 70+ lbs so far I try to keep myself on a routine throughout my day but today it's been hard. also getting that lonely no one knows how I feel feeling even though I have a great group of family and friends as a supportive system.

    I need a workout plan!

    I walk but I fell recently and hurt my right knee and it's been rough trying to keep up so far my mind is ahead of where my body is in terms of working out or being active even in my down time my mind is like get up and go walk or do something active and it's just not the case my body just can't keep up lol going to incorporate some jump rope or some basic kalestinics in the morning to help get me back to where I was
