I am down to my goal weight of 160-165lbs at 162.4lbs. Now I did 1/2 of this the “easy” way with slow carb, kettlebells and PAGG. Then I got some sort of flu and following that had an odd stomach issue. Well a week ago today it hurt so bad I had to go to a Doctor, I went to a walk in clinic near by and the Doctor sent me to the hospital for a CT Scan. After waiting at the hospital for about 4 hours I saw a Doctor that said I most likely have appendicitis and will need surgery that night pending a CT Scan. The CT Scan came back positive and I was under the knife a few hours later. After 3 days in the hospital and barely eating for probably 5 or 6 days I got home and the scale said 164lbs, before the hospital I was at 172lbs. A couple days later I was down to 162lbs and finally starting to eat and feel better.
Today I am about 90%, and doing light workouts, but I have not been eating slow carb yet, that will start again tomorrow. Although I am down to my goal weight my body fat percentage is probably still 18-20% and mostly around my stomach area. I still have a lot of work to do, probably a lot of muscle to gain back.
If anyone wants to see a laparoscopic appendectomy there is a great video here on youtube http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4s69S1u5YdA
