22 months since my gastric Bypass Operation – and my weight has finally started to level out.
At the moment it has been as low as 80KG, but is currently stabilised at around 82KG… which is remarkable because when I first started this journey I had “hoped” that I would get down to 95KG 🙂
I am still considered “Overweight” by the BMI scale… my “ideal weight being under 73Kg – apparently … but BMI does not take into account muscle mass… which I have increased significantly. (note: most 1st grade NRL players are also considered Overweight according to their BMI).
The graph below shows my weigh loss journey since a Gastric Bypass operation in September 2018.
Whilst my weight seems to have stabilised, I am not actually eating particularly well…. Certainly the quantities I am eating are significantly less (I still can’t physically manage a large meal without feeling uncomfortable), but am confident, (if I start eating healthier”), that I could probably drop another 5Kg. Not sure if I can be bothered at the moment… but would be interesting to see if I can get down closer to my “normal” BMI weight range
In the last 22 months I have :
- Lost over 50Kg in weight
- Been off ALL Diabetes medication (since the day of the operation) and have been officially Diabetes Free for more than 10 months
- Continued going to Gym (except for the Coronavirus restrictions), and are currently going 5 or 6 times a week
- Never Felt Better !!!
