Like you said, it was a billionty years ago, so I'm going to guess...entropy.

That's 17 lbs in 16 months. A little over 1lb/mo! Dang! I think I've plateaued since my March 2014 to August 2014 growth spurt, where I went from 160 to 173. A nice hefty 10lb gain, largely last July, I think. Almost entirely due to consumption of ice cream, I expect. :3

I'll go ahead and call it 12lbs/year for ease.

Adjusted projections:

In 10 years if I keep this up, given my yearly rate, I'll give 120 lbs heavier, or a portly 297, obese class III with a BMI of 58. Oh lordy.

In 5 years if I keep this up, given my yearly rate, I'll weigh appx 60 lbs heavier, or a portly 237, obese class III with a BMI of 46.3.

At my current rate of 12lbs/year, I will get to class 3 obesity in 2.5 years or so. All I need to get there is another 30 lbs and I'll be the scourge of doctors everywhere!

Holy crap, I wonder if I'll ever get there


For the record, I expect my weight will increase far more slowly than anticipated above - I'd say my initial stats are more reliable for use as a projection tool.
I always love seeing projections like this, mostly because the data can be so easily skewed.

If we go back a year I've gained about 15 pounds. Bringing me up to 385 (I've been a bit higher but 385 was today) which already has me in class 3 with a bmi of 53.7 so i'm going to drop the class info from how you formatted your estimates.

In 10 years if I keep this up, given my yearly rate, I'll be 150 lbs heavier, or a hefty 535, with a BMI of 74.6. lol, that's pretty huge.
In 5 years if I keep this up, given my yearly rate, I'll be 75 lbs heavier, or a portly 460, with a BMI of 64.

However if you scroll back another 8 months i was a light 312 pounds. which would say i averaged 3.6pounds a month or 43.8 per year which makes for some very different estimates.

In 10 years if I keep this up, given my yearly rate, I'll be 438 lbs heavier, or a hefty 823, with a BMI of 114.8.
In 5 years if I keep this up, given my yearly rate, I'll be 219 lbs heavier, or a portly 604, with a BMI of 84.2.

Lol its amazing what a little gaining competition did for my projections.

Diabetes I got type II diagnosis in January and my doctor started pushing WLS on me quite strongly. I couldn't agree with her so I felt like I wasn't given much of a choice but to start a crazy diet. I'm 240 lbs at the moment and feel like a tired wrinkly shadow of myself most of the time. Emotionally and skinwise that is, of course my physical fitness is better in many ways. They want me to loose 90 more. I'm not sure that's realistic at all.

Khrestel, obviously I'm not a doctor at all, and certainly not your doctor, but I'd think that after such a dramatic change, at the least it might make sense to hold in place for a while and see how you are doing?

The reasons I’m thinking are that:

1) Apparently our fat is where our body stores toxins that we absorb as part of life, so when losing weight we do subject ourselves to higher levels of various substances that are rough on us, and I’d think giving your body a chance to recover from that could be good.
2) It sounds like your levels have hit a pretty good point. Perhaps it is time to hold steady for a while, while making sure to eat well and stay active, and see how everything looks?
3) Of course doctors would like to see you hit ‘ideal weight,’ but when you were as large as you had been, I’d agree with you in wondering if you could get there and keep your weight there in a mentally and physically healthy way? Or to put it another way, it sounds like your doctors goal is for you to lose as much as possible, but you have to decide if you want that, or simply as much as is necessary for your body to be healthier?
4) Mental health matters too. At the very least your mind may need some time to get used to your new body, before you are ready to make a fully balanced decision on what to do next.
5) Many people find it harder to keep weight off than to lose it in the first place, especially if extreme measures are taken to lose it. At some point you need to find what an acceptable lifestyle is for you, physically and mentally, that you can live with for decades.

At 240 pounds you are still quite fat, it may be that you have to lose more for your health, but then again I think you have lost more than a third of your body weight, maybe that will be enough? It just seems to me that maybe it is time to see how your body is doing in a steady state sort of way.

Of course, I’m sure your doctors wouldn’t agree with my thoughts, and they are the doctors….

===========================================

Back on topic, down a few pounds to 226. Not sure if I've actually been eating less, or it is just the Summer heat that has dried me up by a few pounds?

Tad, I've been thinking about that. At the moment I'm torn in two with my thoughts. Like you said, I've lost almost 35% of my body weight since christmas and my blood sugars are quite normal and stable now with the current diet and quite minimum medication so that might allow me a break. On the other hand, I still remember the hunger and devastation earlier this year. If I need to loose another 90 lbs or even a part of that it feels quite stupid to stop going now when it's going relatively easily just to stabilize and then start kinda again from the beginning later.

Of course I know there's going to be a new, longer struggle whenever I decide to start balancing.

The overall amount, 152 lbs from my biggest last summer, is so much that skin isn't going to retreat anyways. If I ever want to look my own age again I am going to need a skin removal surgery and the upper limit for them to even consider me as a candidate would be 190 lbs.

Every other day I'm ready to dive into a bag of crisps just to fill my skin and feel pretty again. But I don't want to dissappoint my friends and family. Everyone around me is believing I've finally gotten some sense into my head and they're all so supportive.

Just remember that you have to do it for you. Not for friends, or family or doctors or anyone else. I know it sucks to think you will disappoint anyone, but it is better to disappoint someone else than to disappoint yourself. You have done a great job so far!

That being said, I believe what the doctors want is for you to get 40lbs below where they think you will want to be (plateau). This will ensure that the skin removal surgery will remain ok. They want a person to get to their lowest because they don't want to do a skin removal surgery and then the patient loses more weight and they have to go back and do a second skin removal surgery. The more surgeries you have the more risk of infection setting in.

In that case.. argh. But they say one needs to be stable at least a year before they even start planning a surgery. That and what you said about 40 lbs don't kinda meet.

One step at a time. I don't think I'll ever get small enough to qualify anyways. And this conversation maybe starts to be a tad off-topic.

Aw, thanks I haven't had said surgery yet, but should be in the next couple months.

Also I discovered I've lost about fifteen pounds in the past month or so. While this is great news for surgery, it still makes me a sad kitty. :x
