It’s my 6 month surgery anniversary… I can’t believe it’s already been half a year into this new me. This surgery has changed (and saved!) my life so much, I never thought I’d see the physical change in myself (we’re our own worst critics), but when I look at these photos… I am so damn proud of myself because I SEE where -70lbs has gone!

yep - I had my husband take pictures of my from all four sides on the 3rd of every month (because my surgery was on June 3rd) until I hit maintenance 20 months later. I love having my journey documented - and also, while I was losing, it was a great way to see my progress!

🗣🗣Thank you soooo much for these pics! 👏🏽👏🏽👏🏽 Absolutely amazing. Congratulations on all that chile lol This gives me so much hope for the sacrifice I made. Im 10 days post op from VSG. Only 7 lbs down so far but I’m not really focused on the scale just healing.
Did exercise also play a big role in your inches lost? For me I’m not one of those big losers just based on diet alone lol But I’m so interested in your story please keep us updated!

You’re in the thick of it right now but I PROMISE it gets easier… by 4wks post op you’ll feel like a new person.

If I’m being totally honest, I exercise very minimally. I’ve been sticking with low carb (try to stay under 45g/day) and it’s been working well for me. But, now that I’m in the final 25lbs or so before goal it’s slowed down (was losing ~8lbs/month and in Feb I lost 4lbs), so I’m going to start incorporating exercise to keep losing.

      My name is Jose and I am from the UK, I had a gastric bypass a month ago so I am at the beginning of my weight loss journey.
      I would like to know how many calories I should be eating a day to stay healthy, thank you for your time

        Hello Joset, why haven't you been given a diet plan? Did you have your surgery in the UK? Every surgeon has a different diet, and no two people are on the same one. Weird I know. Contact your team if you can

        Mine was two weeks clear liquids

        Two weeks on soups, milk shakes and broths all with out lumps

        two weeks on pureed foods { I couldn't stomach this step }

        two weeks on soft foods like Protein yogurt, stewed mince and veg, soft scrambled eggs. Pate on hard crackers

        Then onto any food I fancied. If you struggle on any step or with any foods go back a step for a few days. Eggs, salmon and chicken are hard for beginners.

        Sorry I missed your original post, hope you are still on here.
