I have been considering weight loss surgery, since my benefits will cover the medical cost I am considering it for myself. I'm turning 50 next year and I don't want to continue with ailments associated with being obese, just the sound of the word makes me ill. I'm 6'2'' and weigh 320lbs, for years i was very active at work and never had to worry about my weight. My life has taken a different direction and I'm not as active as I used to be, hence the weight gain. Having never exercised regularly before, putting it in to my daily routine is not easy, yet making excuses seem to come to me quite often lol. I'm planning for April, there are several steps I have to make, a few different Doctors I'll have to see, I really think this will help me get back on the road I was once on. I'd like to document my journey here I hope others will be inspired by it.
