Well, I've been saying I've lost "about" 100 lbs for a while now, because at ~95 lbs, that's true. But today, I tipped the scale at 229.8, which means that I've lost just OVER 100 lbs since my surgery last May. Huzzah! Plus, it's nice to be in another weight bracket -- the 220's -- again.

And I'm really enjoying clothes that fit (and some attention from the ladies!) All good things. It's going to be a FUN summer!

I should add that my next goal is 226.8. Since I'm averaging about a pound a week at this point, that means that right around early-mid May (almost exactly a year out from surgery), I should achieve the goal of moving from morbidly obese, to obese, to just "overweight" -- according to the BMI charts. Of course, with a BMI of 29.9, that's pushing it, but it still qualifies! Since I'm extremely heavily built (no really, that's not just a euphemism like "big boned" -- genetically, I'm built somewhat like a tank), I doubt that a "normal" BMI weight of 185 lbs is EVER going to happen (I would seriously have to look and be anorexic), but I'll be content with just being "a little overweight." That's good company!

Now I just need to get back into my exercise routine and start packing on some muscle for summer!

Congratulations! I, too, reached my 100 pounds lost mark yesterday after being stuck at 98 for a LONG time. It's an amazing feeling, and it has definitely strengthened my resolve to keep up with my program.

I'm just looking forward to getting on a scale, and not seeing the number 2 on it for the first time since high school...

Best of luck for continued success. Enjoy those new clothes!

Congratulations to you, too. And yes, it IS a great feeling. I know that substantively, there's nothing really different between 95 lbs and 100 lbs, but sometimes that extra digit makes all the psychological difference in the world!

Way to go, I'm very impressed!! I would love to lose 100 lb, which would put me right at goal. Which would be awesome.

      Kind of nervous, as expected. One month out from surgery!

      😫 Hi, I’m new to bariatricpal! I am 8 days post op VSG. I am struggling very badly. I’ve been so emotional because I feel like I’m doing wrong. I’m afraid I’ll eat or drink to fast or eat the wrong thing. I’ve been on Pinterest and YouTube constantly for help. I have followed all of my surgeons and dieticians instructions. I just don’t know if my body is getting enough. Today, I am weak, sore, and just exhausted.

        It passes!! Everyone goes though it! It is a short term emotion! I'm almost five years post op! You made the right decision! Don't focus on the change right now. Try to entertain your mind. What your feeling only last about a week. It's related to your body adjusting and you mind adjusting. You got this!!

        I agree with Tara it's hard right now but it gets better do t forget your hormones will be all over the place you may even feel depressed. Be kind to yourself reach out and talk to people how you are feeling .

      I know BMI is not the best indication of things in certain situations but I'm happy to share I'm out of the obesity class III category. I'm in class II now. Just 47 more lbs until I'm officially "overweight". Haven't been just "overweight" since I was a kid. "laughs"
