- HEALTH TRACKER
Hello all. I’m new to OH and just found the Men's Forum. I’m hoping this will be a great place to meet other men who are on the same journey and to find support. My name is Tony and I live in Spokane, WA. I have been heavy most of my life and growing up my mom and I ate out almost every day and we were major couch potatoes. I've tried losing weight numerous ways and came to the conclusion that gastric bypass RNY would be a good option. I want to be around for my wonderful wife for many years and I know she's concerned about me. I started this journey several months ago by attending an information seminar and then I had my initial consult with my surgeon on Jan 27, 2012 and I weighed 380 lbs at 5 feet, 11 inches. I started my pre-surgery diet on Feb 27, 2012 consisting of around 1500 calories per day. As of May 6, 2012 I have lost 35.3 lbs on just the pre-surgery diet and I should have a surgery date next week. Just wanted to say hi to everyone here and I look forward to sharing our journeys and supporting each other.
