For some reason every time a take a picture if I smile it comes out looking goofy, maybe I just have a goofy looking face, lol. So very few pictures of me ever show a smile.

Our starting numbers are very similar. It's hard to say why people with such similar numbers have different results. I focus primarily on getting in high Protein and low carbs. I go for 900 calories a day, at least 80 grams protein, and pretty much as few net carbs as possible(also try to get a minimum of 15 Fiber a day which can be challenging while keeping carbs down). I am a paramedic by profession so I keep fairly active, and I try to get to the gym at least 5 times a week(doing 30 minutes cardio and 30 minutes strength when I am there). This is the best description of what I have found works for me, hopefully listing it can help others to get similar results.

Thanks ! I think I am taking too many calories 1500+. I have a problem that I am a vegetarian so can't eat lean meats. Please tell what was your weight on the date of surgery ?

Weight on the date of surgery was right around 370. I did not have a long period of time prior to surgery due to my insurance covering the surgery relatively quickly. So the only preop weight loss I had was during my 7 day preop diet.

      It's Saturday!!! My fiance and I are out doing yard work and I made the mistake of not staying hydrated before going out so now my body is shaking and weak. I have my pre-op appointment Tuesday, the 2nd and I am trying my hardest to lose another 2 lbs by then.

        You got this!! When I had the sleeve I cried every day during the liquid phase, It was during the super-bowl! I was sooo hungry I sucked on a piece of pork rind. LOL
