Talking Hit 199 pounds today!



YES! Today I hit 199! 🦋🌱🐣🎉✨

From my highest weight of 275 pounds, to my November 21st surgery weight of 250, in just a little over 4 months, I have lost 50 pounds AND gone from 50.4% body fat to 40.9% body fat. This VSG weight loss surgery has been such a life-changer! 😁

Metric: Highest weight of 124.7 kg, surgery weight of 113.4 kg, to today, 90.3 kg!

Thank you very much, Bigpants, PandaCupcake and Wisertime!

Today I also hit 196.6 which is 29.9 BMI -- so I am officially just Overweight now instead of my many years of Obese! Inching down!

Congratulations!!! Getting below that obese marker is huge!

I had VSG on 1/17/18 and I'm down 41 since then!

Thank you, ubergirl, Bigpants and Nightowlrn!

ubergirl, 41 pounds in under 3 months is FANTASTIC! Doesn't it feel awesome?! Great job!!

Bigpants, I hope you are moving on down to Overweight soon (or already hit that marker!) Best wishes!

Nightownrn, yes, I need to get some knee and elbow pads in preparation to biff off the Segway, haha!
