At 3-month post surgery with an additional 8lbs(3.6 kg) weight loss and in total of -58lbs (-26.3kg). March was 3-month follow up with my surgeon Dr. Carter and my full lab and seeing my nutritionist. My lab included red blood count, glucose, through kidney functions, full vitamin panel, cholesterol and so on I could go into details but unless you’re a phlebotomist or in healthcare field the results wouldn’t say too much to you, but there is interest in it a well-detailed lab comparison I wouldn’t mind to share it. Only my iron level was low 42 ug/dL which should be 50 ug/dL – 170 ug/dL range, but it can be easily fixed with an iron supplement. My cholesterol dropped from 201 mg/dL(which was slightly high) to 163 mg/dL. Vitamin D level is pretty good, which is surprising in Pacific Northwest where most of the people have Vitamin D deficiency.
March I was juggling finals and work and my workout routine. So many times ended up going to gym as soon as I got off my night shift. I am pretty strict on 2-3 days of the week, disregarding how tired I am. Fortunately, I’ve got a great support of friends who always tag alone for a good TRX or water aerobics class. From April my schedule will change as the quarter starts, reduced my working hours so I can balance school, family, workout. Which I am quite happy about.
Food wise nothing change, still avoiding bread and rice they just take up space in my tummy. A breadstick ruined my meal with my friend because it took the space in my stomach and then we just ended up laughing that after two bites I was done with my food. It didn’t bother me at all and just funny, so literally have to starve myself before I go out to eat. Of course, most of the portions are outrageous in the US but nobody surprised on that. Here some progress photos, with my heaviest in Sept 2017, then 2018 February 2 month post op and a recent one 2018 March.
CW: 258 lbs (117 kg)
