In the 27 weeks since surgery I have lost 37.8 kg in weight (5 st 13 lbs).

Progress to my goal

My weight loss goal is get down to 103.5 kg (16 st 4 lbs), which would be a loss of 60.2 kg since my surgery.

Why this goal? It would give me a BMI of around 29, which would still make me overweight, but out of the obese range. This amount of weight loss is consistent with expectations from bariatric specialists, that gastric bypass patients on average lose around 70% percent of their excess body weight.

I am now 62.8% towards my goal
