Hello I'm new here

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone,

I've been meaning to join this site for AGES but finally got around to doing it today so I thought I'd introduce myself.  Hmm...where to begin...well I'm 34(as my username would suggest) and have been happily married for 5 years now to my beautiful wife.  She has 6 kids ages 21-12 so marrying her changed my life pretty much overnight but I wouldn't trade being a stepfather for anything.  They are the reason that I've decided to get a gastric sleeve, I'm just waiting for insurance to sign off and then I'll get my surgery date.   I have a number in mind(225) but I'm not sure it's reachable with the sleeve.  I've struggled with my weight my entire life and after a rather frank discussion with my doctor, I decided to change my lifestyle.  I am 451.7 pounds right now but I topped out at 509 in April of 2018.  It feels amazing to have lost 58 pounds and I can't wait to get to my goal weight somewhere in the 200's.

Anyway, I've rambled enough so that's all for now.
