    That's fantastic! Weight loss surgery gives people the tools to get healthy. Combine it with eating right and exercise and the results are incredible. Congrats and great job

    You are correct, it is a tool not a fix all. People, even some who have surgery, don't get that. I would not have been able to have the success without surgery but I am really enjoying the lifestyle changes and benefits.

    I reached my original weight loss goal weight

    I am glad to know to know that you have reached your goal. I was looking for such a result since years. And I have been trying all those exercises and never did anything help me. Now I consider a liposuction and I hope I would get a better result from it. And I am looking for a right surgeon for myself. I read a lot of plastic surgery doctors reviews in many sites. I hope I could find one from them. How many of you have undergone a liposuction? And how was your experience undergoing it? Please share it here so that it would help me in my research. Thanks in advance.

    That's awesome man, great job.

    I am currently working on getting down to 200lbs or so(I think - that's what they tell me I should be)

    I started at 260lbs (November 30th 2014) and am down to 225 now. I've been stuck here, plateaued for about two weeks or so.

    How long after your surgery did it take till you were able to start biking and doing BJJ? I want to get back in to lifting weights and playing soccer but would be worried that a hard crash, strain or fall could cause pretty severe injuries.

    I hear the Dr's make you go a major diet change. What does that usually consist of before surgery?

    Congrats by the way. Very awesome to see you go from the size I am now to the size I want to be.

    That's an awesome transformation. I'm down 70 pounds myself but luckily I was able to do it without surgery, but not without cycling.

    I kind of pushed things and went back to working out after a month and a half...it put me back a little. I should have waited at least 2-3 months before really hitting things hard. I did a 20+ mountain bike trail 3 months in and felt pretty danged good but was still very weak as I still was not able to get many calories is at that point.

    Yes, it is a lifestyle and eating habit change. The surgery is only a tool, it is the lifestyle changes and dedication that make success possible. I was on a modified Paleo diet which consisted of a lot of protein, then if I still had room I ate vegies then possibly a starch like potatoes. Nothing out of a box or processed. I say modified Paleo because I was able to tolerate dairy so I ate the hell out of Greek yogurt!(not the kind that is loaded with sugar) I was told to always have protein and limit sugar intake to less than 4 gram of sugar per serving.....I also drank the heck out of protein shakes. I kept my calories at 1200 then 1500 and now 2000cal/day with a minimum of 100gr of protein and a gallon of water a day.

    Two weeks before surgery I was on a liquid diet which helps to shrink the liver. That makes it easier to perform the surgery....it sucked but I lost 20lb that week...no way in hell would that have been sustainable for me though.
