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.
JJ
