Great job indeed. Losing that much weight is a life changer. How's your blood pressure and all that now that you down a hundred? Everything about you looks different and better.

My A1C was 14.5 before my surgery, 2 weeks ago it was 5.3 with no medication. Blood pressure was normal with no medication.

Happy day!!!! Took me 10 months and 6 days to get here. The last time I was 250ish was 25 years ago. About 60 to 70 more to go and I'll be at my fighting weight.

Thanks for all the motivation. I'm setting my next goal pretty high. I want to try to grow 8 inches in height before I turn 50. Thats about a year away and that will put me at about 6'2". I figure I might a well dream big seeing how my first goal seem just as far fetch at one time.

Glad you've stuck with it, that's a great accomplishment! Not sure about your next goal, but it's worth a shot, I guess.

Great job sir. The quickest way to get taller is to swim underwater until someone hooks you and reels you in. You will go from 5'7 to 7' in no time.

With my luck I'd swallow the hook and bleed out flopping on the deck.

One year ago today I started a liquid diet 2 weeks before I had my gastric bypass. I quiet the Donut shop cold turkey and promised them I'd be back in one year. I went in this morning down 105lbs form June 5th 2017. I ordered my usual Blueberry Donut, Link Sausage Croissant and Coffee. I ate 3 bites of the Croissant, drank the Coffee and threw the Donut in the trash. I hope to be down 150lbs next year when I go back.

Did you ever get stuck at a weight? I have been stuck at 248lbs for a few months.

Yea, I've been stuck several times. I just go by how my belt fits and not the scale. As long as I can average one new hole a month in my belt, I'm good.

When I'm done I'll be able to make 2 belts out of this one.
