I went back for my 6 month checkup today which actually occurred 9 months post surgery due to scheduling conflicts. In September of last year I had my initial weigh in and start of my required 6 month monitoring period. My stats were as follows.
Height: 6' 0"
Weight: 358.5 (highest 370lb)
% Body Fat: 47.1
I did not loose much on the monitored diet and exercise program but during the liquid diet phase pre surgery I dropped over 20lb. At my two week check in my stats were as follows
% Body Fat: 45.0
The past few months have been rough on me and I have only lost around five pounds. I knew things would slow down but dang this has been rough. If anybody has seen my profile I got serious with my Jiu Jitsu, Submission Wrestling and Mountain Biking. I was on the mat at least five days a week and rode on average three days a week...Loving it. Now that the days are very short and I go to work and come home in the dark I have not been able to ride as much and have been limited to weekends. On my visit today my stats are as follows.
% Body Fat: 27.4
I told my doctor my sob story regarding stalling the past few months and she really put things in perspective....She said, look, you have lost 90lb in the past 9 months and done this by only loosing 5 lb of muscle! She kept saying she has never seen such a large fat loss and minimal muscle loss so I must be doing something right....ok...ego back in check. Just wanted to pass the good news along and encourage everybody to stick with the plan....it works...not always as fast as we would like but it works.
Good times, more rides to come!
