I hit a milestone today I am super excited about!
I have finally lost 300 pounds! I have been stalled the past few months and finally lost those last 6 pounds to hit this milestone! I am so thankful to be making this journey.
It still feels like a dream to me. It's crazy how I went from having to be on oxygen 24/7 and hardly being able to cross a room without getting out of breath to being able to walk for 6 miles and still be ready to go out and do other things!
I am loving life right now and wanted to share my excitement at hitting this milestone with you!

Aww thank you! I lost 60 pounds in the 6 months before surgery and since surgery May 29, 2016 (about 15 1/2 months ago) I've lost 240 pounds. So in total I guess 21 months.

Congrats! You look lovely. What an amazing transformation. Tell us how you stayed committed, please, to your weight loss journey. Any wisdom you want to share is welcome. Big "high five" & hugs.

Thank you. Honestly, I stayed committed for the most part but I also had a few months where it was harder than before and I didn't follow the plan. I did stray for a bit and gained 3-4 pounds in the process.

I just tried to remember how bad my quality of life was before and it renewed my focus. Being able to keep up or be faster than my friends instead of being blocks behind them is crazy. Being able to shop in stores I never could before? Insane. Being (for the most part) happy with who I am and how I look? I never thought it would happen.

When I want to stray from plan I now make myself go on a walk and remind myself that before I couldn't even sit in a chair without getting out of breath.

I am determined to not let myself get back to that place.

You have to find the things you are getting healthy for and hold onto them.

Remind yourself of what you're working for.

I wanted to be able to participate in life instead of being on the sidelines all the time.

Now I'm very active and I have more friends than time to see them.

It's a surreal feeling and I'm not going to stop working until I reach my goal...then the hard part starts!

Good luck to you!

Thank you! I did have a panniculectomy on June 5th. They removed 15 pounds of skin. I will have more surgeries once I hit goal. I had to get the panni done before I reached goal because it was affecting my quality of life.

      Ok I had surgery on Jan 27 2020 so I am 3 weeks out and have lost 32 lbs  I wish I had this done sooner. Now just trying to figure out different things to eat so I am not eating the same thing over and over. I did order some stuff today from the Bariatric Store and that stuff should be here in time for my next phase. I have a goal of 50 lbs by the first of June hope that is attainable. Good luck to every one on this journey

      So went to my surgeon today for one month follow-up. Last time I was there he wanted me to put on 4kgs but oops I’ve lost another 2kgs. Told him it was intended, was trying to maintain, upped my food intake, was stable for almost 3 weeks but last weekend broke it.
      Mum turned 80. Drinks at neighbours, a couple of crackers & dip, home late, no dinner. Out all morning, followed by celebratory family lunch, home late, no dinner. Whole dietary routine out the window. Did have a protein bar & tuna frittata muffin in between but didn’t eat much at all those two days.
      What dumbfounded me was he was ok with it. I told him I didn’t want to put on his 4kg because of the weight gain many experience in the 12+months in maintenance. He agreed with me. What the??? Invasion of the body snatchers??? Totally opposite position from last month. 
      He was also ok with my stopping my multivitamins. Agreed with my thinking that is better to feel ok & eat then be nauseated & not eat. He’ll just monitor my bloods to ensure no problems which is what they do anyway.
      Not complaining.

      Just came from my GPs office. He would want me upping to 1500kcals a day. Have no idea on how I'm gonna do this - a year ago it would been an issue to come _down_ to 1500 kcals 😂
