Celebrating 1 year journey, 100lbs down

HW 382, SW 309, CW 282

First visit to the nutritionist was 7/3/2019. Had a long pre-op program then was delayed by COVID-19, so wasn't sleeved until 5/18/20. Lost 73# pre-op, 27# since - for a total of 100! Excited to hit this goal, and only have about 40-60 lbs left to meet my first and second goal.

You can do it, stick to the program, Proteins + fluids, you know the drill. The second pic isn't great - I'm about to have to retire another size of shirts in the next few weeks.

Ok, so my wife said the after picture wasn't very good. Here's a better one.

Wowza, you’ve done AMAZINGLY!

I see that you too used to wear the bigger person’s winter uniform: a t-shirt! (As your wife wears a scarf and gilet). Get ready to start wearing the wls summer uniform: sweatshirts and long pants.

Congratulations!! Bask in your awesomeness!! 😎

Congrats on the awesome job. be prepared for everyone to start telling you ...... You need new clothes.... My first time around (banded 2009) i shopped a lot at second-hand stores.... It was a very smart move. Got down to a size 6 and stayed there for years. So i bought "good" stuff and wore them for years. Then i lost my band in 2017 and put on 30lbs over the next 2.5 years.... Sleeve 8/28/19 at 173lbs. Now those size 6 that i'm so glad i didn't get rid of are too big... so now i'm slowly but size 2's and 4's. Today's weight 125 and holding.
