IN MAINTENANCE - loving life - NEW PHOTOS!!!!



Recommended Posts

Hope all is well

Here in Australia in my state we are starting to ease covid-19 restrictions opening some shops this week and cinemas and gyms and restaurants next month but still with social distancing and limits on numbers.

I've been well and everyone I know and love is well.

Anyway just want to summarise my journey for those who are new.

I started my weight loss journey 8.5 months ago at 322lbs and I had roux en y bypass 6.5 months ago.

From day one I chose to go cold turkey and cut out all the bad food sugar fat carbs and lived off Protein Shakes religiously for months.

By surgery day I was 257lbs and I've now technically been in maintenance a few weeks and this morning I'm 168lbs most days between 168/170lbs and have been that way for a few weeks; finally starting to feel good about myself that's a total of 154lbs gone.

Now when I look in the mirror I do not recognise myself anymore it's amazing to see how small I look now.

Everyone in my family is so happy for me because I spent half my life obese and unwell mentally not just physically but now my mental health is improving because I no longer dislike what I see in the mirror; is amazing how much my brain has changed now that I'm healthy and skinny.

I've only just started experimenting with food more than past 2 months and have relaxed in the carb counting/calorie counting but still quite aware of my daily intake.

i will admit I've had a few treats here and there in the past month but it literally has not affected me weight loss at all.. It's like I have a completely new metabolism..

I love coffee and I feel great mentally and physically and I cannot wait to meet a nice young lady who will appreciate me.

I'll be 36 in 11 weeks and I'm feeling better than I have in 20 years :) I personally think and feel like I'm going to be 26 hehehehehe

I've got a few photos to show you guys and I appreciate honest comments from the ladies

(it's not easy to take photos & get good angle of myself but I did my best)

Thank you.

If you have any questions about my bypass or anything feel free to comment or PM.

Starting BMI 43.3 current BMI 22.7

Love Mikey xx

Anyone that see's you walk down the street would never believe you weighed 322. You look fantastic.

Looking good!

Personally, I think you'd look even better if you grow your hair out more...but that's just me, I like hairy guys, lol.

hair on my head or my face?

1. My hair has got thinner with bypass and it appears to be growing slower than before.. I'm hoping it will get thicker..

2. I don't like facial hair.. makes me look old.

I like both head hair and face hair, personally, but I know not everyone likes beards.

I'm only 2 months out, but from reading here, it sounds like having your hair still a bit thin is very normal at 8 months out - hopefully it will come back with a vengeance soon. :)
