Well I hope everyone is surviving with this virus issue?

Here in Australia things are going ok just the issue of supermarkets being raided and hard to get toilet paper before everyone buys it all... But no quarantine or anything yet...

Umm I don't go online as much because I'm happy and doing things my way... Fired my useless dietitian months ago...

I started this diet journey 7 months ago pretty much to the day and I've hit 150LBS lost I cannot even fathom it.

I never ever thought I would even get this far or this low but this bypass just seems to keep working for me.

I started my journey at high weight of 322lbs and today I weighed in at 172lbs first thing this morning 😁

Some might say I've lost more than enough but I feel I'm going well just taking each day at a time..

Still experimenting with different foods I can tolerate but taking it slowly and doing it my own way.

Some days I'll still feel like a shake or two.

Some days I'll be real hungry other days no hunger at all...

I've been doing it my way not worrying about specific stages or phases really.

So yeah 150lbs gone and I feel amazing. I feel like a new man and I'm like where did all the fat go?

It feels great people calling me skinny and I weigh less than most of my mates now hahahaha

I know I'll eventually need to start weights and stuff but I'm in no hurry yet.

Love Mikey xo

Mikey, that’s amazing!!! So inspiring for me to hear just shy of 3 weeks post op. Congratulations on changing your body and your life! 150 is my goal weight. I’m down to 218 now so I have quite a bit to go but so excited for you! My starting weight was 256.6.
There’s no TP to be found here in the states either so we’ve got that going for us as well. 😂

      I was in A-Fib several times the week after my surgery. I had been on a beta blocker prior to surgery, but went off it, substituting another BP med, so I could take the stress test. I thought I was dying. Went back on the beta blocker, and the new drug as well. Pulse went back to my normal, under 50. But my BP is still high. Surgery was 3/8. Have a cardiologist appointment 4/8. My surgeon has been of no use. He just says it will go down, when you  lose your  weight.  He didn’t even examine my incisions. Did his job, not interested now.

      We are right there with you.  A lot of time and work waiting for this and  boom.... but no end in sight and the uncertainty is sooo hard.  But,  I do remind myself that people are dying and being in a hospital isn't a safe place to be and I rather be fat and alive than thin and dead.

        So I was in the WalMart the other day waiting in line for my prescription refills and on the shelves are the different braces and canes and aids of all kinds. One of them was a "Coxys Cushion"! I was floored. Since when did they start making those? While I still have a ton and a half of weight to lose before I'll need one of those, I was happy to see it since I've read the threads about bony butt syndrome on here. ((HUGS))

        I have one of those donuts, very uncomfortable :P I ordered a pair of padde thights to see if it helps with it. My body is like, I like to loose fat on the ass and the tighs first. So I have this butt with all bone, and that squiiishy stomach with all the rest of the fat on it😂 and I never had an issue with my ass, I actually quite liked it beeing a little junky in the trunky!

        This is not something I have to worry about - as a pear-shaped gal I have a lot of padding! That said, with age and now weight loss it's not as..firm as it once was and I am afraid of how much will be left back there once all is said and done!
