    4 month update

    Thank you all for the kind words. Looking at the pics myself I can see a big difference. But mentally I still feel like the big guy. When will that change? Thanks Rob

    4 month update

    Hello. Just thought id give a update on how things are going. Been busy with the farm and my new found energy. Ive have gotten down to 215. Seems like the weight is harded to get off now. But it is still slipping away. First pic is from a year ago when I started my supervised weight loss. Second pic is from this past friday. Thats my wife and son in the photos. He is in 4h with his dairy calf project. Take care Rob

    Hello. Sorry for the delay. Calving and planting season are busy. So its mostly in the spring for me. I belong to a milk marketing coop. So currently my milk is being powdered and used in chocolate production. It also goes to a small creamery and gets bottled. Im only a 1 lb away from being in the 230's I haven't weighed that in 20 yrs. Its amazing on how much easyer I can move around. Take care Rob

    Your going to do fine. You researched alot about this. Make sure you get a picture of your stomach. My surgeon texted me mine. Said it was the second largest one she has seen.

    Pain is slowly going away. I get up and walk every 2 hrs. Just lots of gas bubbling inside of me. Sometimes it's painful.
