My highest weight was 324 pounds. I live with daily pain and decided enough is enough! I started losing weight in March of 2018. I used diet, exercise, and tried 2 rounds of phentermine. 74 pounds came off, and I yoyoed 20 pounds for 2019. Oh heck no! 1500 calories and daily 5ks were not working. And when you're putting in the work that is infuriating!   I still have so much left to lose to get healthy. 
So surgery it is. My best friend went to the program a year and a half ago and now I'm going to finally win this battle of Cia vs. the weight! Calorie restriction works for me so I'm going with gastric sleeve. The date is set, and all I have left to conquer is the rest of my healthy life. Hopefully a year of hard work flies by!
