OK so had an op Dr said lose a min of 100 lbs or face death. When I went in for the emergency surgery I weighed 320lbs. I found this website when I was just over 300lbs. I weighed in last at 282.7lbs. I am losing about 1-5 lbs per week and every week is different. I stay between 1400- 1500 Cal's per day. I really still cant do a lot of exercising yet because I really need to be very careful not to ruin the surgery. I think I am doing ok but I don't want to just get complacent and forget to keep striving for better. So I will take advice from others who have had success with weight loss. However I prefer not to hear about any fad diets, because I am not on a diet I am changing my life. Before it is too late that is. So again any good advice you can give will be much appreciated.
My advise to you is stay strong. You can and will do this. Once your surgery has healed or you call and get your doctors blessing begin walking. Start with just a half mile (or less if necessary) and add 10% more each week. Walk 4-5 times a week. This will help build your strength, cardiovascular endurance and help burn calories in addition to getting you ready to actually start doing more activity.
Never give up on yourself and It is always so nice to hear people avoid the word diet :)
I made a lifestyle change on Jan 3rd and am down 53.2 lbs since then (results not typical!) I've slowed to 7-10 lbs a month but am very happy with that.
Starting Weight (SW) 282.2
Current Weight (CW) 229!
Goal Weight (GW) 212 (re-evaluate and probably go down to 195)
