After my appointment last Friday with Phoenix Health (the company who did my by-pass surgery) I am quite relaxed. Even though this week I am doing my first observed lesson (that means I get “marked” guys!) I am genuinely chill. The main reason? The dietician told me I am still the perfect patient, and that I am on track for losing 75%-80% of my excess body weight! I have lost 35% already, in 3 months.
It’s crazy to think that in 6 months I could have lost all of my excess weight, the last 20%-25% I’d be losing on my own with calorie counting and trying to exercise.
|29th Jul||142 kg / 22 stone 4 lbs||49.1|
|12th Aug||137 kg / 21 stone 6 lbs||47.4|
|20th Sep||128 kg / 20 stone 2 lbs||44.2|
|15th Nov||118.2 kg / 18 stone 6 lbs||40.8|
10 kilos in 8 weeks is pretty good! That’s about 2lbs a week I think? Overall I’ve lost 4 stone, so that is certainly a success. I’ll lose weight more slowly now as I can eat more normal amounts, though I am still pretty limited to about a ramekin full of food per meal. Fingers crossed for the future!
