Recommended Posts

Welcome to the goalies bench! I love it here, and so many of us fit because we are all smaller! I haven't ridden a horse since I lost weight, but I gotta tell you, the amusement park rides are so much more fun now that I'm not stuffed in the seat like a sausage. And I don't have the fear that I can't fit at all!

Thanks Lynda. I like the Goalie's Bench... That's fun. I was making amusement park plans for my nephew's annual visit this summer...can't wait.

So I made it to the goal posts. Any more lost will be nice but I've achieved what I set out to do (and maybe more). Here are the stats:

Weight at start of journey: 420

Total loss: 240

Total days since I made the decision and started surgery: 689

Weight loss before surgery: 51

Weight loss since surgery on 10/10/11: 189

Average lbs per week: 2.4

%body weight lost: 57%

Pics later everyone. I'm going to take a horseback riding lesson and Celebrate today!!! I made it!

Now the work starts: Next chapter.. Maintenance: The pizza Strikes Back

Congrats on your success, Terry! You've worked hard to earn that spot on the "goalies bench"! And what a terrific way to Celebrate your success- hope you enjoy! :)

Thanks OWS. It was a great experience. I'm going to keep at it. English riding seems to be a hell of a core workout based on my day after soreness...might have to get some padded shorts too...hahaha

      My name is Jose and I am from the UK, I had a gastric bypass a month ago so I am at the beginning of my weight loss journey.
      I would like to know how many calories I should be eating a day to stay healthy, thank you for your time

        Hello Joset, why haven't you been given a diet plan? Did you have your surgery in the UK? Every surgeon has a different diet, and no two people are on the same one. Weird I know. Contact your team if you can

        Mine was two weeks clear liquids

        Two weeks on soups, milk shakes and broths all with out lumps

        two weeks on pureed foods { I couldn't stomach this step }

        two weeks on soft foods like Protein yogurt, stewed mince and veg, soft scrambled eggs. Pate on hard crackers

        Then onto any food I fancied. If you struggle on any step or with any foods go back a step for a few days. Eggs, salmon and chicken are hard for beginners.

        Sorry I missed your original post, hope you are still on here.
