Hello All,
I am 38 years old and have struggled with my weight all my Life. After a sharp increase in negative health issues I reached out for surgical assistance. I tipped the scales at 310 lbs in September and on my 5,11 frame it is not very functional. On the 12th of December 2012 I received a Sleeve Gastrectomy. For those unfamiliar with the term it is a reduction in the size of your stomach. I weighed in at 306.5 the Morning of the proceedure and as of 28 December I am down to 283. The decision for surgery was a hard one as the effects are permanent and most view this as a very extreme way to loose weight. I have dieted most of my Life with no long term success. Without the benefit of a personal trainer 24/7 I knew I needed to do something different that would allow me to change the way I look at food. So far I feel great and do not regret my decision. I am begining to look at food like I never have before. I have joined this group as a support network and look forward to making new Friends and sharing experiences for long term success.

Tomatoes are a no no for gout. You need to google what foods arent good for gout. there are quiet a few and yes red wine is pretty good for this as well. Might have to look at going without for a while ...

Wanting to drop 43 pounds
get rid of ALL the bad foods and drink in your house, and replace them with good ones if they aren't in easy reach you can't consume them

Greetings from Oregon
Thank you hwzat4u. I am keeping it lower than what FS is telling me but a couple hundred over those recommended by the nutritionist, still well below FS daily RDI.
