Had Gastic Bypass on June 7 and now down 90lbs.I started at 440lbs now down to 350lbs,Drs are happy,they want me to loss 3to5 lbs a week,so far I have.Joining a gym at Hostipal of Special Care,in 2 weeks when the pool reopens,as I need the water to get better excerise.I’ve got a fused leg and shreded rotator cuff,that makes regular excerise tuff and pianful.But with all the new energy I have,I can’t wait to start!!!!
