50 Days Post Op 50Lbs gone bye bye.



Recommended Posts

Whoop! Hope I can keep this pace going. I’m sure it’ll slow, my initial rolling seven day average was around 10-12 for the first couple weeks and it’s been hovering right around 4lbs a week since. Once I got past the low energy stage I feel like hyper-mode has been activated. No food issues. I’m capable of eating anything it seems nothing disagrees with me, just making good choices every day, and the restriction is still very high, an ounce or two depending on what it is. Ate some raw jalapeños even. I haven’t been this light since college (in the 90s). Doesn’t seem possible... wish I did this years ago.

That's wonderful! 4lbs a week is amazing; I'm kinda jealous, but mostly proud of you. That's awesome progress.

That must be challenging. I see the struggles people go through when comparing themselves to strangers on a public forum. Having to deal with that at home with a loved one must be exponentially harder.

It’s very kind and aware of you to recognize what your wife is going through and to have the forethought to be mindful of her feelings when around her given your successes. Plus one for the good guys!

However, do continue to rejoice in your awesomeness, too, and try not to temper it too, too much. If need be, do your fist-pumping here and we’ll all give you virtual high fives.

Congrats, and Good Luck!

Thank you! I have to be careful, my wife had vsg about 3 weeks ago and isn’t doing as well. She’s obviously excited for me and proud but I have to be mindful of her struggles whereas I feel blessed to have had no issues of significance.
U r a phenomenal husband, congratulations [emoji122]

Sounds inspirational... I’m 3 days out of surgery and I keep doubting myself, like there should be more I should be doing
