I sure do love the forestrforum family. I have gotten quite a number of PM's and much good feedback here too. Thank you one and all. Was a little disappointed this morning to see that I had put a half pound back on but I won't let that under my skin. Just means I have to work a little harder at it.  :)

Don't worry about the small fluctuations. You just needed to see that on average, you are dropping.

I've been closing my cabin in Canada and missed this conversation.  I am not an expert here in any way.  My recollection about the various procedures is that there is a great tendency to lose a lot of weight with bariatric surgery, but that the weight is often regained over the first few years after the initial loss. 

Lee- I would look on the internet for long term effectiveness of such surgery before considering it.  I'm glad that you are progressing in your weight loss, which is a much better way to go.  I do agree with other posters that, in the correctly selected patient, this can be a life-saver.  The key is in patient selection.

I'm proud of me too. I gained 7 pounds while we were in Belize but have lost that and a few more this week.  8)

The more you can lose through diet, exercise and lifestyle changes, the better you will do, no matter whether you have surgery or not.  So remember, this is for the long haul.  Keep on doing your best.  Remember that it is ok to splurge once in a while also.  Belize sounds like a good time to splurge to me.  =)  Now you are getting back on track, and keep working the weight down.  That's all you can do, slow and steady is the way to be.

Great job.
Dave

Can't have grits. Too many carbs. Determination I have. Encouragement from my forum brothers and sisters makes that much better.

Well,
After I got back to work and weighed on the scale I started with I found I hadn't lost as much as I thought. I've had some ups and downs and ups but have finally started back down and have now truly broken the 40 pound mark. Onward through the fog I go. Next short term goal is to get below 300 lb and that's only 3 pounds away and then to reach 50 pounds lost. Small goals keeps it achievable. I have an abdominal hernia surgery next month and I'm sure the weight loss will help with that. Pretty sure the weight was a big contributing factor to begin with.
