Had my one year post op appt yesterday. Dr is really happy with my overall progress. A year ago I was morbidly obese and now my BMI is in the normal range. My body fat % was 51% and now it is 34%. The improvement is fantastic but he would still like me to get below 30% which is a healthier range. He says I don't need to lose any more lbs, just need to shift the muscle vs fat %. He says to keep doing what I'm doing - focusing on getting in a lot of Protein - and he thinks the % should naturally continue to shift toward less fat. Strength training of course would help too, but he believes that each person needs to tailor their plan in a way that works for them and right now it seems I'm on a good trajectory so I shouldn't need any huge changes in what I'm doing. During my physical exam he said everything looked good, and he even commented on my hourglass figure[emoji126] ...not in a creepy way though. Next appt in 6 mos. I'm very proud of myself!

You all look fantastic. I’m almost at goal, those last few kilos is proving difficult. But since the surgery, and the 30 kilo loss, I’m finding I like myself more and I treat food as fuel as opposed to the enemy. This means I chose better options based on Vitamins and nutrition as opposed to ‘comfort’. I have more energy and excising is physically easier, still mentally hard in winter! Best thing I ever did

Well Pearldrop I might be 3 months behind you but I see my GOAL shining ahead also. Just 4 kilos away if my equivalents are correct. I always kind of liked myself inside but now I am a Proud Frustr8 booster and I don't care who knows it! Come a long way, didn't think at first I COULD DO IT but I found hidden reserves of strength, kept going over obstacles and around bends, and I AM A PRETTY FINE LADY. when all's Said and Done!

Hey everyone! I am nowhere near where I want or need to be but I am doing okay. My goal is around 175 but my scale keeps fluctuating between 197-202 and it’s been this way a while. This is me currently. Still fighting the good fight. You all look amazing. Hope all is well with you all 🤗🤗🤗
