Most recent update = August 3rd, 2020

I had a VSG - vertical sleeve gastrectomy - better known as a gastric sleeve on June 24th 2020. I have struggled with my weight since I was a teenager and I am now 50. I am tired of it. I lost over 100 pounds in 2016, kept most of it off but simply have not been able to lose more. I needed a tool that will help me do this. Please, for those that have not followed me in this, do not think "this was the easy way" it ain't even close to easy. But it is a beautiful tool with which to reach my goals and stay there!

Highest Weight (HW) 435 - BMI Feb 1st 2016 = 68.1
Surgery Weight (SW) 352 lbs - BMI June 24th 2020 = 55.1
Current Weight (CW) 322 lbs - BMI August 3rd 2020 = 50.4
Goal Weight (GW) 159 lbs - BMI = DATE??? = 24.9

I try to keep my page updated. If I haven't updated in a while, feel free to Sparkmail me and ask me to update!

My Goals:
I just want to be comfortable in my own skin. To be able to walk around in the stores. To be able to take care of myself without help. I want to LIVE

My Program:
I have to make sure I get protein before any other foods or I may not have room for the protein. But I am not "low-carb". It's just that protein has to come first since my VSG

    The benefits of healthy choices far outweighs the number on the scale. Let's continue to reduce our risk of disease, build strong muscle and bone, stay flexible and mobile, improve our cardiovascular system, help our body heal itself, increase our energy level, relieve stress, slow the aging process (and who doesn't want that ?!?)... and so much more.
    Don't give the scale any power. Take note of the number then get off the scale and live your life.

    I shore am glad it's Friday! How about you? Since it's the end of July, I think we should have a little shellabration, so I have reeled in some summer jokes that I think you will find laughabubble; although you may find summer better than others.

    What game do anglers like to play during summer?
    Go Fish

    What did the boy say to his mother after a few hours at the beach?
    Mommy I'm surf bored.

    What is the best thing to take to the beach for a picnic?
    Peanut butter and jellyfish "sand"wiches.

    What is a sea monster's favorite food?
    Fish and ships.

    Why did the whale swim across the ocean?
    To get to the other tide.

    Which fish is a comedian?
    A clown fish.

    What did the shark say after eating the clown fish?
    That sure tasted funny.

    Water you think? Sink or swim?
    I think it might be time to for me to clam up and high tide it outta here.

    Happy Fry-day and enjoy the weekend!
