9 months check in - in maintenance - feeling amazing



Recommended Posts

Hello there hope everyone is feeling well and getting ready to return back to normalcy after covid-19.

Here in Australia things are starting to get back to normal with opening more businesses and stuff.

It's my monthly check in for those that are interested in my journey.

I count from the day I began my diet and my new way of life which is 9 months to the day but my surgery was 7 months ago.

Everyday I wake up and I'm amazed how far I've come this year. I look in the mirror and I still can't believe how good I look now after losing all the weight.

I spent half my life obese most of all my adulthood actually and I was always known as the fat friend or the one to be in the friendzone ONLY!!

I'm finally starting to gain some confidence in myself which I've struggled with on top of rejection from the opposite sex and I'm starting to engage in some counselling to help deal with the anxiety that comes with social interactions with women.

Um I'm regards to my weight looking back in my diary I've been in maintenance pretty much the same weight range now for 2 months.

My highest weight this year before surgery got up to 322LB and I've been in maintenance sitting between 165-168 pretty consistently these past 2 months.

I don't log my food as much but still keep a mental note of the calories and still have a habit of checking my weight most days just to keep focused and to remind myself to not get complacent!!

I will admit I've had some treats since in maintenance and it has not affected my weight which is great so I feel the bypass I was given has definitely changed the way my bodys metabolism works.

It feels great to be called skinny and people using that adjective when talking about me 😛

I'm no longer the fat friend I'm now the skinny ONE.

I just want people to know it is possible to reach all your goals and to be successful.

At my lowest weight of 165 I've lost 157lbs from my highest weight in just 7 months which is amazing.

I know I'll need to tone up and build some muscle eventually and that will add some weight which is fine.

Thank you all for your kind words throughout this journey.

Mikey.

Congratulations! In your photo, you don't seem to have any loose skin. I would love to know what kind of exercise you do.
