Week 20 - WOW

Thursday, November 24, 2016

This has been a rough week mentally for me. I have been having feelings that I am getting too skinny. My wife assures me that I'm not and I know she is right. You see, I have been over 300 pounds most of my life since the age of 12. I am now WAY below that and it feels strange! I almost feel as if a part of me has died, as weird as that might sound. I look at myself in the mirror and can't help but wonder who that person is. I don't know him, I don't know where he came from and I don't know where the person I used to see has gone. I know it's a phase I have to go through, it's just a little difficult right now. I will see my psychiatrist in January, and I know he can help me get past this.

I couldn't believe what I saw on the scale this morning! I lost another 5.2 pounds this week! That's almost 11 pounds in two weeks! I haven't changed anything, I'm still eating lots of protein and veggies, drinking my protein shake every mornings and taking all my supplements. Maybe my body is just so happy to be so much healthier that it's decided it wants to get the rest of the excess off quickly. I am now just 50 pounds away from my goal weight! ABSOLUTELY UNBELIEVABLE!!

None of this would have been possible without the greatest surgical team of n the planet, my beautiful,caring, supportive wife or without the help of my Heavenly Father Jehovah!

    I would assume that it will take our minds some time to adjust to the extreme weight lost in such a short period of time. That is awesome you lost 11 pounds in 2 weeks. The good thing is you are eating healthy. Congrats on your progress!!! I too have been close to 300 for a large portion of my life so I can relate somewhat to how you are feeling. I am down 50 and still have a ways to go.

    WOW is right! That is amazing. I can certainly understand your feelings. It must be strange, but I just know you will get used to it.

    Congratulations on all of your success.

    That is a lot of lbs to lose so fast. Glad you have medical supervision...and am so happy for your success. It took me an entire year to lose 11 lbs..and I didn't even know that till my Dr. told me! Then again, I am putt-putting my way down..nothing dramatic. I can barely imagine how this all must feel. I know my gradual loss made it hard to recognize that my clothing wasn't fitting, that I had changed sizes..that my skin didn't/doesn't fit any more! Like you, I never thought I would be here. (don't know my actual start weight before SP...but have lost about 100 lbs over a period of years.)

    Congratulations on your continued success. May Jehovah help you keep going and help you reach all your goals..esp. the spiritual ones!
