I'm far from goal weight but I was sleeved 7 weeks ago and my starting weight was 255. I'm now 212.

I'm so pleased with my progress this far and I can't wait for more weight to come off.

I walk every day and eat good quality ingredients. And always my Protein first.

Getting my sleeve was the best decision of my life.

Dude, congrats man. Thats an awesome amount of weight in less than a year. I am pretty much right where you were. 6' 369. How did the tattoo hold up on your forearm? Too say I am heavily tattooed is an understatement. Sleeved both arms shoulder to wrist, and have one leg done knee to toes. Off all the things to worry about with having major surgery, my tattoos are the only thing I am worried about. My surgery will be scheduled soon (just waiting on final approval)

The forearm tattoo is doing fine. I do have some loose skin under my arms but that is starting to go away since i been lifting a lot. The half sleeve will be a full sleeve and half uper chest piece this time next year. So working hard to tighten my arms and chest up.

I have a leg tattoo and my leg muscles didnt go away at all. My legs did shink but The look crazy muscled out. Happy to say I dont have to do leg days at the gym. Carrying around 260lbs for 15 years was good enough. I do run a few times a week.

So only place I would worry about is your upper arms if you have a lot of weight theere. Start lifting now to fill in the extra skin when it gets to the point.

      I have no clue where to upload this, so I'll put it here. This is pre-op vs the morning of my 6 month appointment! In office I weight 232, that's 88 lbs down since my highest weight, 75 lbs since my surgery weight! I can't believe this jacket fit... I am smaller now than the last time I was this size which the surgeon found really amusing. He's happy with where I am in my weight loss and estimates I'll be around 200 lbs by my 1 year anniversary! My lowest weight as an adult is 195, so that's pretty damn exciting to think I'll be near that at a year. Everything from there will be unknown territory!!

      I changed my profile image to a molecule of protein. Why? Because I am certain that it saved my life.

        That's brilliant! You've done amazing!! I should probably think about changing my profile picture at some point. Mine is the doll from Squid Games. Ironically the whole premise of the show is about dodging death. We've both done that...

      Two years out. Lost 120 , regained 5 lbs. Recently has a bout of Norovirus, lost 7 pounds in two days. Now my stomach feels like it did right after my surgery. Sore, sensitive to even water.  Anyone out there have a similar experience?

      April Surgery
      Am I the only struggling to get weight down. I started with weight of 297 and now im 280 but seem to not lose more weight. My nutrtionist told me not to worry about the pounds because I might still be losing inches. However, I do not really see much of a difference is this happen to any of you, if so any tips?
      Thanks
