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. 😂

      Officially no longer over weight! Goal #1 reached! I'm now under 80kgs (176 lbs) at 179cm (5'10") and 10 months post-op and am over the moon. My weight at 79.9 kgs (176 lbs) gives me a BMI of 24.9 which means that I have a normal weight! OMG.
      I still want to lose about 16 lbs more though in order to get safely into the middle range to insure against that little regain that happens. The I have maintenence in front of me as well.
      BUT I have hit my first goal. Yeah me!!!

        Fantastic! That's such a great goal to reach and one I hope to get to this year as well.

      I had my gastric sleeve done September 10, 2020... I started out 330# before surgery.... I'm down to 260# now... I've been stalled out for over two months now.... I exercise when I can (Bad back/knees)... I follow my diet , get my protein and drink my water... But still not losing any weight... I've done everything I can think of to break the stall.... Even went back to liquid diet....  Sometimes I think this was a mistake having the surgery...

        sorry to hear that don't feel down. Maybe a reset meaning something new. I am in the process of having the surgery a second time. I had Lapland in 2012 removed in 2018 and I have gained everything back and some. When I stalled on lapband I had to do something new for me I joined a free boot camp and Zumba and then boom dropped 38 pounds in 2 months. I know you said bad back and knees so find something with your limits. But I think try something new I stalled for 8 months

      Happy anniversary to me - well almost. Friday marks the one yr anniversary of asking my GP if she thought I’d be a candidate for WLS.  
      What an exciting, sometimes frustrating but ultimately rewarding journey. I’ve lost 40kg or about 40% of my body weight & am below my goal weight. Some days I  just can’t believe where I am now from where I was 12 months ago. I never imagined this reality. 
      I am grateful for the encouragement I received from family & friends. I am grateful I have a supportive GP. They helped smooth the rough patches & kept me on track. I’m also grateful for this site. The information & support has been so helpful & eased many worries. 
      I’m still sorting out maintenance (what works one week doesn’t the next) but I’m up for the challenge.

      Too much anxiety and stress:
      So lately thanks to COVID 19 (I don't have it though been trying to stay safe and healthy) I've been having severe anxiety and panic attacks lately. I've always had this problem but it's getting worse so as a result I've been having bad insomnia and getting sleep is hard for me right now. I wish it were easier but it's a work in progress AGAIN. I thought I got over this hump a while ago and was getting sleep but now my insomnia is back in full spring and I hate it! My grandmother is also moving on Tuesday and that is also stressing me out because I'll have no family nearby since everybody is in other states now thanks to California being too high. It makes me so sad man! But I am seeing her today on Monday for the last time before she leaves on Tuesday this week.
