Start Weight:(23 Jan 15) 374.0 lb
Current Weight:(18 May 15) 326.0 lb
Goal Weight:240.0 lb
following: Post Bariatric Surgery Diet
performance: gaining 1.7 lb a week

I am a 61 year old happily married man to a truly amazing woman
I have been overweight ever since I graduated college
(I did have a LOT of verbal and emotional abuse as a child)
My all time high weight was 512 in Feb. ‘09
I really only started trying to eat healthy and get in better shape
in August 2011- - - That’s when I joined FatSecret. I lost down to 372 in the next 10 months, but like many others I gained much of it back
(after the death of my father and near death of my brother)
Part of the reason, but NOT all, was I never posted a journal or reached out to anyone on FS until Jan.2015.
Although I have been so amazingly blessed to avoid heart disease, diabetes, and many of the other complications of being extremely overweight, nevertheless my doctors finally talked me into having gastric sleeve surgery
( in part because I was nearing the insurance “cut-off age”)
I was extremely cautious, but it has gone very, very well.
You can view that I have made amazing progress already, although I do have a health complication that makes it difficult to do much walking or exercise - at one session- -but I am committed to do as much as I can as often as I can.

I care about people, but I’m not interested in just seeing how many buddies I can “collect” on FS.If you have the time and emotional energy to support journal posts and send a personal mail on occasion, feel welcome to make a buddy request.
I do believe one of the great opportunities in life is to ENCOURAGE each other as we travel the journey.
Warmest Regards and Best Wishes to ALL who take the time to read this. 
