96 pounds down in three months



Recommended Posts

I started my liquid diet April 17th @ 347 lbs, had surgery the following week. Im currently at 272, so 75lbs in less than 3 months. Its possible, not saying its the best. The human body is a strange thing. Everyone is different, but thats why I make sure im not starving myself, I eat healthy, I haven't had any bad food days or bad habit days, I take my Vitamins everyday and drink about 70 to 100 oz of fluids. I workout 2 to 3 times a week. I havent stalled yet, but I know its coming. Plus men lose weight differently then women. Honestly I am more concern about how much better I feel than the LBS. I am concern that I may lose more than I want to, but if it happens so be it!

Where is your before picture? There is no healthy way someone could lose 96 pounds in 3 months unless you just don't eat. How much did you weigh before and after surgery? Don't mislead people - weight loss is a process and life style and healthy eating habits have to be a part of your eating forever not just 3 months. I don't believe it. Who was your surgeon and where are you from? Having weight loss surgery is a tool that you use for the rest of your life - not a quick fix.




I agree. That sounds a bit unbelievable

He may be adding in the preop weight loss, but regardless, this is quite possible if he started out as a heavyweight. Large guys can easily lose a pound a day for a while. If a woman lost 45-50lbs in 3 months, would you consider it unbelievable? Women almost always lose at about half the rate of men.

My husband, who hasn't had surgery, is down 23lbs in 21 days, just from diet, since he can't exercise right now.

The funny this is about people that hate let me break it down. First off I gained weight after I left the Navy due to being single father, stress etc, doesn't matter... I always knew how to eat healthy, workout etc...just because you aren't doing something right don't come at me... I was 381 April 1st got down to 369 the day of my surgery on April 12th and now I'm 280.... I'm happy I can walk 5 miles a day and drink Water, Protein etc and I love sweet tea I eat I just know not to eat wrong....

I get up daily and walk 3 to 5 miles and I like to drink 50 to 70 g of Protein during my walk instead of Water and light workout at gym maybe twice a week on legs....but never skip walking 10k plus a day

You sir are a MACHINE! You've done incredibly well - please keep us posted on your progress please?

(And in regards to the haters - sometimes I think people get caught up counting others people's blessings instead of their own. Sad but it happens. Just keep letting your light shine [emoji295])

Bohdi Tree, I don't think anyone is being a hater, people have a right to express their opinions with it being construed as being hateful. We are all in this thing to be our best self.

I disagree. They were saying he wasn't being truthful, which he was. Explain to me how that is encouraging him "to be his best self"?
That was hate. Dismiss it if you want to, but it's obvious that's what it is.

You were being a hater and you can just stay off my post cause calling me a liar is ridiculous like I'm seeking fame!!! My doctor's don't have a problem so why do people like you?

Really!!!! How rude of you. It's a public forum so there is no page to go on. I have the right to believe or not believe any story I hear and express my opinion accordingly. Grow up
