  2. Next week is 2 years for me. I lost about 320 pounds, along with some muscle. However, the muscle loss was mostly in my first year while finding what worked for me, finding my balance.I have actually gained muscle in the past 9 months or so. You just need to find your balance. I have to stay on a very high protein diet because I am extremely active between riding and working out.
  3. Out of curiosity, why are you considering a revision? You're barely 4 months out.

  12. One year ago today I had gastric bypass. I had my one year checkup yesterday. My surgeon asked if they could use my before and after photo in their presentation to potential patients. I agreed and signed the paperwork.
  13. Hey all! Just wanted to stop by and say hello! Progress is being made. I've lost 220 pounds from my heaviest. I am down 173 pounds since my surgery June 30, 2015. I weigh just over 250 right now. I've developed a Anyway, hope you all are well! Keep at it, the scale is a lie and the only real indicator is how YOU feel. See ya! Tom
  14. PCP appointment this morning, Doc says. "I didn't really believe in WLS and wasn't sure I was doing the right thing when I gave you that referral. Your success has changed my mind." I felt pretty good.
