  1. So I emailed Dr. Z last week, made a appt to see him. Yesterday I went in and spoke with him and everything was great. He then set me up to see Liz right after and got set up with a surgery date (4/24). She asked if I wanted to do it next week, but that is just tooo soon and not enough time for notice with my job. I am just very thankful that everything worked out and I will soon be in the losers club.
  2. So I started my journey last April 2016 with orientation. Had my surgeon appt and saw Dr. Z. All went well and got the okay. The Surgeon wanted me to lose 22lbs before I can go ahead and move forward in the process. Well long story short.. LIFE Happend. Work, Kids and Sports. At the time was felt like a single parent of 4 kids due to my wife being gone 5 days/week for 4 months at Law Enforcemet Academy and the support to do my diet wasn't there. It was all really bad timing when I started the program. So all has settled down and now have the amazing support from my wife and the kids! I started back on the pre op diet on 2/28/17 weighed in at 384. This past Saturday 3/25 I finally hit my goal weight of 360! So I am probably going to wait till this coming Friday to call and make my appt because I would like to weigh under my goal weight with clothes on and in the middle of the day. All my weigh in at home are first thing when I wake up, so it will always be less then after you eat and drink some. I hope all is having a great journey so far, and I am looking forward to reading and sharing stories and experiences with one another.

    BigDaddy look to be NotSoBigDaddy

    I can relate to all you 6'3-6'4 guys. I myself am 6'3 at 380 and this is the most I have ever weighed. Me too has always been known as "The Big Guy" I was a bouncer at clubs and bars when I was 18. I have that body type where I hide my weight well. All in all I AM DONE with it. I am tired of being THE BIG GUY, mentally and physically. I am tired of the 4-5xlt tops. I want to be fit and able to live for my kids and wife. I am a football coach as well and I wanna be able to keep up with these kids all the time. My goal weight is 225-230lbs. I am just in the beginning step to my lifestyle change. Hopefully it will go buy quick and get my surgery date. I wish everyone luck and am looking forward to reading and sharing stories as our journey takes off!
