Hello All,

I guess it's time to update my bio, since my situation has changed from originally joining years ago.

I've been on this health roller coaster most of my adult life (like many of you). I've bounced back and forth from the 300's to the low 200's several times. I even dropped to the high 170's almost 20 years ago. You'd think at 57 years old, I'd know better. Actually, with the experience of getting to 177 lbs, I DO know better. The knowledge that I gained it all back haunts me at times because I remember how good I felt at the lower weight. If reading this bio helps someone else to maintain their lower weight, then it's served it's purpose.

Well, enough of that. I'm back and moving the scales downward again. I've met several buddies on FS over the years and it really does help for someone to have your back, so thank you buddies for what you've done in the past and hopefully, the future help you'll provide. I'll also try to support you too.

Thanks for taking the time to read my bio.

Going for bariatric surgery...
First of all, thank you for your service and welcome to the site. You're definitely in the right place. I can't tell much about you because you either haven't completed your bio or aren't sharing it but I'll be happy to be your FatSecret buddy. I'll give encouragement and would hope to receive the same. My doctor suggested the surgical route for me too, but I decided that I'd rather try once again to lose it on my own. If it's your best option then power to you! I'll send a buddy request to you shortly. Again, welcome to the site.
