    bhrobins got a reaction from LunaSea679 in Any 300lb men? How much have you lost?   
    48 yr male, 6' 3", High Weight 382. Surgery Weight 309, Sleeve on 5/18/2020. Current weight 238. Targeting 215-225.
    I lost 73 lbs over 10 months pre-op. At 5+ months out from the sleeve, I'm down another 71 lbs. Averaging about .45lb/day so far, but I am slowing down.
    Currently eating 900 cals/day with 100+g Protein. Walking 4-5x/week for a total of ~6-8 miles.
    Stick to the program - hydrate, Proteins,  light exercise - and it will work.

    First visit to the nutritionist was 7/3/2019. Had a long pre-op program then was delayed by COVID-19, so wasn't sleeved until 5/18/20. Lost 73# pre-op, 27# since - for a total of 100! Excited to hit this goal, and only have about 42/57 lbs left to meet my first and second goal.
    You can do it, stick to the program, Proteins + fluids, you know the drill. 


  3. Congrats!

    Down 52 lbs since surgery, with about 32 to go for my goal. Was averaging about 630 cals, 83g Protein through first 3 months. Met with the dietician and she wanted me to bump to 900 cals and 100+g protein because I'm a "big guy" then add another 100 cals each month through 6 months to get to 1200 cals. That seems extreme, but I have worked up to 850 cals with 100g protein. I'm full alot, though.
    I have cheated a few times with a "bad day" at 1000-1100 cals. We usually keep the junk out of the house, so I am not tempted. Still feeling plenty of restriction, so binging is not an option.
    Overall my experience has been great. I have never vomited and only a couple of times was nauseated with certain foods. Still plugging away at protein + Water + walking and light resistance band work.
    Congrats to each of you for your success. Use this new tool and work the system.

    I read a lot about the "3 week stall", but thought I was too early for that. Maybe not.
    I also wanted to be sure I'm not doing something wrong or missing anything. Just shocked that a 300lb guy taking in 4-500 calories and exercising can maintain and not lose. I guess I need to be more patient.
