It is great to see that this group is growing. It is fun to see where everyone is from and maybe when they had their surgery, or when they are looking to have surgery.

I am in Colorado and I had the SIPS surgery on 7/13/15

    I'm struggling with food choices right now and exercising as life has been a little hectic lately. I am going to reel myself in with food planning and figuring out getting my exercise in. Any advice/ideas?

    This is a cool idea for a thread :smile:
    I'm from Central Minnesota, had my surgery in Fridley, MN.
    I'm 5' 8"
    HW: 391(July 2015)
    SW: 343 (March 2016)
    CW: 282

    Goal: hmmm...I think my ideal goal weight would be around 180. However, I've been over 200 since I was about 12 years old...so if I can live the rest of my adult life at 200 or less and be healthy and strong I'll be happy!
