Loving life, feeling amazing, 9 months post op check in :)



Recommended Posts

Well guys this is my monthly check in or check up.

i hope I'm able to offer some inspiration to those who are yet to have surgery or still deciding.

But I have got to say this roux en Y gastric bypass operation has saved my life!!!

It's officially 9 months since I had my surgery here in Australia and it has been amazing, a breeze, no issues at all and lost weight consistently every month.

I've been in maintenance now 3 months pretty much with my weight sitting on average 165lbs but I've also seen 163,164 and 165.

i still weigh myself most days; it's a habit.

i don't worry about logging my food but I do keep a mental note of my intake calories; I still use shakes most days as some days I'm not hungry but others day I am really hungry...

I can eat mostly anything without any major issues and my weight has not changed at all which is great.

So 9 months since surgery and 11 months since preop diet.

Feeling amazing; looking great; starting to feel confident finally and my birthday coming very soon.

Had to buy some more clothes once again even though my weight isn't changing I think my body composition is changing like overtime your skin may retract and I think mine is doing it naturally or via gravity either way it's Great.

159lbs lost at my lowest weight but as I said my weight can vary a few lbs from day to day.

I'll be 36 very soon but I look and feel 26 and can't wait to start living life and finding a lovely lady.

My journey is over but I still have to keep focused and make sure I monitor my weight for the long term.

i just want to say it is possible to be successful. It is possible to lose ALL your excess weight and keep it off...

Thank you.

Photos attached :)

Positive feedback appreciated.

No I don't think so. I only do one a month usually but yes you can change your nickname via settings... There's no rule to nicknames lol

That's a different topic and a different room but again there's no rules to what you can talk about this is my monthly check in Vs a story about my full journey... People should feel safe and happy to post what they like.

Thank you.

Aren't you the guy that a few days ago posted SHAMING others about their posts about struggling with their journeys- your "STOP MAKING EXCUSES!!!" thing??? (And it came out that you were really just posting for attention, like today) THAT kind of attitude is what discourages people.

Some people never learn. You should block YOURSELF from all of us with your repetitive stories. Get a girlfriend, live a life now that you're so successful.

Excuse me this is a free country and a free open forum so we can post what we like when we like I'm sorry if it doesn't conform to your politically correctness or because I don't sit there and make everyone feel good about their failures, I'm sorry about the tough love, if YOU have a problem you can block me!!!
