Morbidly Obese

Hi all :) I'm 5'4" and 514lbs. I've lost 20 lbs so far, but really starting to get into recording my meals and exercising now. I have to get down to 450lbs to get gastric bypass surgery, which I'm very excited about.

Good luck to everyone on their goals, and hope to make some friends :)

    Congratulations on your decision to regain your life. You will not be sorry. Keep up the good work. I used to be morbidly obese, too. That was 130 lbs. ago. I just got back from a 22 mile bike ride and I am 61 years old. It's never too late to start.
  • I'm so excited that you are doing this and not giving up! Friend me, so I can be there with you when you reach your goal and congratulate you. I would love to support you in any and all ways and you embark on this journey.
