Default Weight loss update

I thought I would update some of you guys it’s been a while and I know a few of the brothers here have been following my progress. I had my gastric bypass surgery nine months ago right now I am down 8 pant sizes and over 155 pounds I feel 20 years younger and wish I would’ve done this year‘s ago they say I’m not going to reach the 200 pounds that I personally wanted to reach just because of my bone mass and size in general. they say I will make it down to about 240 (12 more pounds) max but I this point feel so amazing I could care less how much I end up weighing as long as I feel this great long-term. Thanks for the encouragement from all you out there it’s been a rough road but so worth it.

I've got a friend who is a couple of years into his journey. His next big step is skin surgery. They say that will drop another 5-10 lbs.

Congratulations on your progress, you are looking great.

Congrats.

I know what you mean. Just find the healthy weight for you that works for your cholesterol, blood pressure, etc. There’s a big difference between the 200 lb person who is supposed to be 150 and the 200 person who is supposed to be 240.

Ryan, I am so happy for you, and so proud of you. Pretty soon you're going to be wearing a Speedo banking in the Columbia, surrounded by fishing babe groupies. Can your bride handle it?

Congrats on your weight loss! I'm glad you feel so much better. I'm trying Atkins... again... It works, I just need to suck it up and not get off of it. Ever. Lifestyle mentality vs. diet mentality. I lost 40 pounds with it in 2014, put 20 of them back on, and then ten of them back on...

I'm a lucky kid.
Never had to put up with that kind of torture.
Naturally semi-skinny I guess. It's in the genes/jeans?
Glad you're back to functioning again Ryan.
Now GO fishing.
