Ok, so I can get on with life. You are in fact NOT the old guy/dad from the 70s sitcom, Family Ties, masquerading as a short order line cook? :lol:

:lol:

no my alter-ego here was a character on the Sopranos in season 5 i think. the name was just always funny to me.

Hahahaha! OK, but doesn't he look like the old dad too? I'm now running to Sopranos to look him up. :) :lol: Ahhh the things we do when we have wayyyy too much time on our hands and way too little brains. :) Good times!

feel amazing/incredible/extraordinary!!! words can't describe. a complete 180 life reversal. i'm alive again.
no complications - no insulin dumping syndrome, no throwing up or foamies, no strictures. not a single food i can't tolerate, though it doesn't matter because all i crave is super healthy stuff.


some health stats:
Blood pressure - 185/125 down to 115/70
fasting glucose - 125 down to 89
HbA1C - 7.1 down to 4.9
Insulin - 10 down to 4.4
LDL cholesterol - 305 down to 156
HDL cholesterol - 44 to 81
cortisol - 20.5 down to 5.4 (still a bit high... probably stress of losing weight so fast?)
liver ALT/AST - 64/103 down to 20/20

i was a runner for all my life. ran a half-marathon at 265lbs! it was always so hard.... for 20 YEARS! now i go out and i just glide... float. i'm actually mad! like... THIS is what running is supposed to be like?!? actually ENJOYABLE?!? (allow me to reiterate - people are not skinny because they exercise. they exercise because they are skinny.)



This is so amazing to hear! Pictures are great and all, but seeing how happy it’s made YOU it’s what makes it truly golden. Your change in stats is positive life altering!!

Fantastic job !!! I can’t wait to start running again. I have been hoping losing weight will help with nasty prolonged case of planter fasciitis.

It absolutely is! I used to run, and was very athletic. Now it’s painful to run, and not just on the knees! they don’t make good enough sports bras to handle the movement as I’m sure many women on here will agree to!

My goal: run my old exercise route around the lake... about 4miles. I used to love it, and I don’t want to sacrifice the things I love ever again :)

Celebrate big! 8 months and 140 down.:450_trophy:

Your weight loss was rapid. Any challenges adjusting to your weight? Any plans for a goal reward?

no, no challenges at all.

and i’m not trying to be flippant, but, getting to the goal itself was the reward! it’s the thing i have wanted my whole life and it’s here and i can’t believe it.

every time i go up three flights of stairs and don’t even breathe hard, that’s my reward.

every time i sit on the floor and play with my niece, it’s a reward.

every sports game i take my nephew to, which i couldn’t before bc i couldn’t fit in the seats, it’s a reward.

every day is a reward in a hundred different ways.
