WOW I CAN'T BELIEVE HOW FAR I'VE COME.

I started my diet journey 5 months ago today.

at my heaviest in the surgeons office I weighed in at 322lbs.

I was admitted to hospital for surgery 256lbs

now I'm 3 months post op and feeling great.

JUST hit 190lbs this morning and also realised I'm just 7lbs away from the top end of a healthy BMI.

I'm doing so well I might even get down to 180lbs yet and that feels amazing.

I've been doing a lot of fasting and that has really helped.

I've also got my new rowing machine and started using it tonight; it is hard work that's for sure 😀

officially lost 132lbs now 😄

I still say RNY BYPASS was the best choice I've ever made and to anyone else looking at bypass don't stress too much I've not had one issue or complication so far!!

THANKS.

MIKE.

Fantastic! I'm really interested in hearing more about the fasting you've been doing, if you don't mind. My weight loss has been average to slow and wonder if fasting might help speed it up, though I feel great and am content with my progress. Congratulations!

Well it's kind of like the 8:16

I consume all my calories over a 6-8hr window then fast for the remaining 16hrs with using just sugar free items or a little coffee here and there :) of course there are variations of fasting out there you can research!

thx

Yeah I'm nearly done with weight loss but I'll still need to spend months at the gym to gain some muscle tone and maybe tone my stomach area :)

        You are doing this for YOU not anyone else!! Do not worry about what others think, it is how you think and feel about yourself that counts.

      Met with my surgeon yesterday and he said that he is so excited for me and the progress that will be made! Waiting for insurance pre-auth and then will get everything scheduled! 
       
      So excited to start this journey and become a new person!!
