Been doing good really trying to watch the eating. My head hunger is strong. But i fight it.i eat low carb,low cal,low fat like im supposed to.
Been spending the last couple weeks getting over being sick..after gastric bypass it seems harder on you when your sick. After one emergency room visit,one overnight hospital stay for high heart rate and tons of medication later im better.

For a loss of 101.2 pounds! Im losing slowly but surely. Im really watching my carbs.keeping them under 40 carbs to keep me in ketosis. And watching what i put in my mouth! I go back to the doctor on Valentine' s day i hoping to be in 270's. My next goal is to get to 150 pounds lost..i have gotten a activity tracking device called up by jawbone.

4 months out and I still hear ignorance from people who know nothing about gastric bypass or weight loss surgery in general. For example, ruben studdard on tv not long ago. Saying he wasn't gonna have surgery it the easy way out. What? The easy way out? It would be easy if we all had personal trainers like him, personal chefs, access to a gym, and the money to buy the healthy food etc...us normal people don't have all this help. Gastric bypass is a tool! Do you call this easy? I've had to have my stomach and intestines altered. I've had to give up a lot of food and drinks. My Dr. Makes me give up: soda,carbonation, straws,sweets and sugar.pasta,bread,rice,starchy veggies,and the list goes on. I have to take a lot of vitamins daily because if I don't I'll become malnourished. I get lab work every three months to check my levels to see what I need to do to raise low levels.
Its not easy, I work just as hard if not harder then a average person losing weight. Ok let me get off my soap box. Don't ever let anyone tell you that you've took the easy way out..educate them. If your that person saying that to people having the surgery stop being hurtful and ignorant.
