# 8 months post OP - maintaining well - below goal - happy



Recommended Posts

hello there just doing my monthly check in for those who are interested.

So it's officially 8 months since I had my RNY BYPASS surgery.

My journey has been good.

Started high weight of 322lbs and I've been in maintenance now 2 months.

I sit consistently around 165LBS most days but my lowest recent weight was 163lbs.

I have definitely been enjoying alot more variety in my diet since maintenance began and I can tolerate most foods but still use shakes if needed.

I am now consuming around 1500kcal most days even a few treats here and there without any side effects or weight gain.

I'm feeling amazing and looking good.

I'll be 36 in about 5 weeks but feel healthier than I have in 20 years!!!

I am glad I did the right research and chose the BYPASS as my first and only surgery and I'm amazed how well I've done.

never ever expected to lose 100% EBW but I've done it and my surgeon says I'm an anomaly only about 5% of his patients ever lose that much 😊

I know it's only early days and things might change in regards to malabsorption of calories and such but I'll be sure to keep an eye on my weight for the long term.

I just want everyone to see it is possible to be successful and reach all your goals.

you just have to be 150% focused on your goals from day 1.

Thank you all and I'll appreciate any comments.

Mike

Congrats man. That's awesome. I started at 316 and had surgery a few weeks after you (November 4). Down to 194 right now. Really impressive what you've done. People think it's easy after surgery, but I know it isn't.
