Not much of a story.  I've been a yo-yo dieter all my life. I was able to keep my weight somewhat under control through athletics, exercise, etc.  With age and elevated work stress, I found solace in food and drink which led to weigh loss.  I had lost 60 pounds previously, but gain it back +10.  Same old story right.  With sleep apnea and high BP, I needed to get things under control.  I retire in a couple years and the wife wants to travel and I would like to be around to do so with her.  Being fatigued all the time, doing anything becomes a struggle.  My mother has bypass a while ago, so I didn't have the fears and my wife's best friend also coached me through as she had the sleeve procedure a couple years ago.
