Nothing too special going on here. Over the course of about seven years I got fat, and in 2012 I decided weight loss surgery would be an appropriate intervention to: (A) help me get back to being able to exercise regularly, and (B) help me get a handle on my ravenous hunger. I live in the Pacific Northwest, I'm married, and I'm generally some combination of nervous and sleepy.
Highest weight was about 250 pounds.
First consultation with Dr. Srikanth, I weighed about 235.
Day of surgery (February 27, 2013), after ten days of clear liquids + protein shakes, I weighed 206.
Two weeks out, I was at 194.
Eight months out, I was at about 144.
Five+ years out, I've regained and lost a few times. I don't know my exact date as of July 2018, but I suspect i'm back up to ~180 and hope to get back below 170. 160 would be great. We'll see!
