I was 477 the day of my surgery (489 heaviest weight) and yesterday I went in for a blood pressure check up with my primary care doctor and was 416!!!

I had surgery on May 10. So about six weeks.

Granted I have been walking 5 miles a day. I’ve been waking up at 5 am and lifting weights five days a week for the last three weeks after I was cleared to lift.

I’ve been eating about 1200 calories a day. 120g of Protein or more a day.

Still is is almost too good to be true. I don’t weigh myself at home because I don’t want to be discouraged during stalls.

That’s awesome! I had surgery on May 10th, too. I know what you mean about it being too good to be true. I’m honestly shocked every time I get on the scale, considering I started at 491 pounds. I tend to weigh myself weekly. Even if the scale doesn’t show much progress, I count every ounce as a victory.

58 days since surgery. My total weight loss is up to 69 lbs. It really hits home when I see photos. The left was the day of my surgery (May 10) and I was 477. The right is today, I was 408 lbs.

I am almost in the 300 lb club again!

Thank you for sharing! You are an inspiration and love your motivation. I am a 10 days out and feel great but need to incorporate more exercise into my day.

I finally went below 400 this week. That was my first major goal. Next is 330, the weight I was at when I was probably in the best shape of my life when I played college football (6’6” 330). Then I want to tackle 250 after that as my ultimate goal.

I was stalled for about 8 days at one point since I last posted and then this week I was dropping 1-2 lbs every single day until I just weighed in at 393. That is a total loss of 84 lbs thus far.
