    15 May, 5 months post bypass. I am now just 7 or 8 lbs off “normal bmi”.  People telling me to stop is a daily thing, but kindly.  I have run out of clothes in storage so haven’t been this weight for ... 20 years, probably 30.  I got travellers tummy in China last week, had to cancel flights and lost 6lbs in 4 days, which really shows. Funny, I could have just done that 10 times in a row and saved $25k!!!
    I think that weight must be mostly water, and some might come back on as I pick up the eating and the world stops falling out my bottom!
    I know I worry too much but two things occupy me right now....
    1. How do I pick up my calories and stop losing? Cos I would like this to slow down around about now (funny. Was way TOO slow just 3 months ago!)
    2. A little bit of me is yelling “do not lift your calories. In fact pretend you still have a bad tummy even. Eat less. You can get rid of ALL those bulgy bits if you try”. Hah, I will NOT go through   Luckily, Dr and Psych next week!

    16 weeks post bypass, and I am down to my Gastric Band typical weight - took me two or three years of faffing with the band to get here (my surgeon lived in a different city, hard for fills).  This is effortless. Almost magic! Liking different foods is a joy.
    I am not in am my lowest sized of stored clothes, and feeling pretty damned pleased with myself! BUT I lost almost 4 lbs last week (on holiday, scuba diving) so I know I am likely to lose a bit yet. The surgeon said I would - I didn’t believe him. So I guess it gets more expensive from here as I may need to BUY transitional trousers rather than pull them out of storage!  
    My goal was to get to this weight. Then it was to get to 10lbs below this. Now it is to get to “not overweight bmi”.  Gawd, skeletal!!
