@ ready to lose it....I started out at 102 kg which was about 225 lbs and I had surgery at the beginning of march 2012. I lost most of the weight by November in about 9 months. I now weigh 72 kg which is about 159 lbs bringing my loss to 30kg or 66 lb. I did both metric and imperial measurements coz I haven't actually calculated before. I have 7kg to hit goal of 65kg or 143lbs.

Hi there!

First of all, you look amazing!! :-) but just wanted to ask a few questions if that's okay? I was wondering what sort of food you eat and how much you involve exercise in your life? It's pretty obvious you are looking GREAT!! & wanted to see what path you took (obviously beside the sleeve) to get to where you are today!! I am 4 months post op this month & have lost close to 60 pounds, which I am totally stoked about but just wanted to see what you did :-) !!

@alahana. Sorry the post got sent before I finished typing lol. Fat fingers when typing. Anyway the lunch is typically a Protein and some veg and the same for dinner. I don't always have good days I have a majorrrr sweet tooth so I do indulge I believe more than the average sleevers in cakes, cappuccino's and cola but I do work out more then. The key is to make sure exercise becomes a part of your life. I don't obsess over it but I do 20 mins of strenuous cardio and 40 mins of weight training 4-5 times a week. But I am a slow loser and I believe it's because I dont always make great choices

Good answer! I guess you still have to live life & I thank myself every day for getting the sleeve & not the bypass because I must admit, sometimes I have eaten the wrong food and I know I would have been very ill if it was the bypass I got!! Phew!! :-) well congrats because you really look amazing :-)

I definitely think the sleeve has way more benefits than the bypass so good on you. If you need any help along the way feel free to message me.

      So my surgery anniversary date is on the 24th of this month, but I had my 1-year follow up early with my surgeon this morning (I have another 1-year followup at the hospital on Monday to get my bloodwork and labs done).
      Anyhoo...my surgeon was very pleased with my results (and so where the office staff apparently, because 3 of the front desk ladies came by my exam room to give me props/high fives/generally gawk at me).
      But get this: he asked if I would be willing to come in for a future photoshoot so that I could be on a poster! And I was all, ummmm....no thanks, LOL.

      Today was a really tough day and I turned to food (and a watered down glass of wine). The interesting part was that I felt REALLY full after eating half my go to cheat snack, tortilla chips with cheese. So the GBP is doing its job!

      The only way I can tell that I'm losing weight is from the scale and my clothes "getting bigger".
