Hello there guys.

Hope all is well.

Well most of you know my story.

Started my weight loss journey 10.5 months ago. Had surgery 8.5 months ago. Been in maintenance now 2.5 months.

My high weight when I met the surgeon was recorded at 322LBS and I have lost weight really well and consistently the whole time, averaging about 20lbs a month 😁

i got down to 165lbs and have been stable and maintaining that weight for the past 2.5 months, I still check my weight often to make sure I'm not going up and this morning my weight has gone down again....

i don't understand. Like I'm not even trying to lose anymore weight I'm already below goal weight and feeling amazing.

In maintenance I've been eating more calories and adding in different foods and some carbs and to be honest I've had a few treats here and there; I honestly believe the bypass has completely changed my metabolism and how my body processes calories 😁

I'm not counting calories as much and enjoying my new life.

I'm just wanting people to see it is possible to be successful.

Today weigh in - 162.8.

that's 159.2lbs lost and that is amazing literally HALF MY BODY WEIGHT GONE......

That's great. To be able to eat regularly and even have a treat now and then and continue to maintain and even lose... that is everyone's goal. Congrats!

I hear you @MIKEYY84. I’ve lost 45% of my body weight. I never would have believed it. Having a fast metabolism for the first time in my adult life is amazing. It’s a wonderful time.

I do understand how challenging it can be to maintain while we’re in this sweet spot. I lost 10kg more than I had planned & took months to find the balance. Now, I feel like I eat all day & don’t exercise at all - can’t afford to burn the calories. I do still avoid sweet things, bread, Pasta, rice, etc.

I know this will change though. My metabolism will slow & I’ll have to drop some of my Snacks & start exercising again to maintain the weight I am now. I weigh myself almost everyday to monitor any changes so I can modify my diet & activity when needed.

Congrats on what you’ve achieved. Amazing!

Again, this is a dream. I'm 32 days post op and stalled at a 17 pound weight loss. Been 200 pounds for 10 days. My surgeon did a "short bypass". Only 100 cm. Because I only had 65 pounds to lose and I didn't want to dump or malabsorb. I hope I will still lose the 65 pounds. I'd love to be saying what you two are in a year. Wishing you continued success!

Yeah I'm probably 10-20lbs below my ideal weight and I'm not worried because we all know there can be a 10% weight rebound in the years to come plus when I get to start weights and toning up then I should gain some muscle as well and yes it is possible that maybe our metabolism will change in the years to come so it is imperative to keep an eye on your weight long term :)

Do not get complacent

I had my surgery May 29th and I'm down 60lbs. It's hard work, but it gets easier as you go! I had RNYGB and I regret nothing! For the first time in years I'm under 300lbs! I don't see the change yet, but the moment I noticed I'd lost inches was when I got in my car and had to scoot my seat forward cuz my belly wasn't in my way as much! I've hit a stall, but I'm gonna keep working! I love hearing all the success stories people share cuz it keeps me going!
