500.5lb Guy now down to 316!



Recommended Posts

Hey guys decided I would post some pics and my story. I’m Mike and I’m 37 from Montreal. Waited a full 5 years to get this surgery. Best decision I ever made.

Surgery was Nov. 22, 2018 and I’ve since lost over 180 lbs! I work out 6 times a week; cardio, swimming and various exercises.

let me know what you think!

mike

Congratulations, Mike! You look wonderful, happy, and on your way to better and better health. That's great that you are able to work out 6 days a week. How soon did you notice your energy increasing as well as your stamina? How soon were you able to work up to exercising 6 days a week? Again, congratulations , and I wish you continued success!

Hi Amy!

Honestly took me a month post op. But now I just want to work on myself. And you have to learn to be selfish for sure ;)

but now I found the right portions and I push myself more and more :)

Thank you so much!

been working hard. Training is a mental game more than physical. And. Arguing exercises. Went for a 16km hike recently. It’s all about pacing and objectives.

Now that I can fit in airplane seats I’ll be able to take long flights to other countries of the bloody commonwealth lol

      So my surgery anniversary date is on the 24th of this month, but I had my 1-year follow up early with my surgeon this morning (I have another 1-year followup at the hospital on Monday to get my bloodwork and labs done).
      Anyhoo...my surgeon was very pleased with my results (and so where the office staff apparently, because 3 of the front desk ladies came by my exam room to give me props/high fives/generally gawk at me).
      But get this: he asked if I would be willing to come in for a future photoshoot so that I could be on a poster! And I was all, ummmm....no thanks, LOL.

        I guess I could, but the idea of being out there for all to see just skeeves me out! Nope, not for me ;)

      Today was a really tough day and I turned to food (and a watered down glass of wine). The interesting part was that I felt REALLY full after eating half my go to cheat snack, tortilla chips with cheese. So the GBP is doing its job!

      The only way I can tell that I'm losing weight is from the scale and my clothes "getting bigger".
