I've got to congratulate you Marcus for your efforts. It appears to me that you are addressing the physical side of the fitness/weight loss regiment. I know that finding time for a workout is difficult while having a job and a young family, but keep at it young man. I am not any kind of an expert, but I suspect your biggest battle in regards to losing weight is your body type/genetics. It takes time and effort to exercise, and only a little time and extreme effort to change your eating habits.When I weighed in sunday morning i was at 349.4 which was up .4 from beginning of october
I'm have the gastric sleeve done. Where they take and cut your stomach down to sleeve shape. They no longer will do the band at the office I'm going to cause it's easy to work around. They only do the bypass surgery now on diabetics and people with major health issues because it's more of a recovery. It was definitely tough and the hardest part will be not working out for the 2 weeks before and 2 weeks after surgery.Marcus, I didn't think that I had any place recommending the surgery option for you, but it appears that you are working with professionals on that issue, so good luck. A short story; I have a good hunting buddy who blossomed to 460# on a 5'9" medium frame. He went up and down, but always ending up more than down. He had the lap band, lost 160# before finding out a way to eat around it and gained it all back. He later had a gastric bypass, and had a very difficult recovery, but he worked with the doctors and followed the program to change his eating habits. He has been at 200# for over 8 years now.
Dave wanted to go elk hunting with me, and I told him that he needed to be in the best shape possible, and to improve his long distance shooting. He took it to heart, worked his ass off, and in 2017 he and his 17 year old son went on a guided horseback hunt in WY. Dave ended up riding 24 miles the first day, and shot a magnificent 7X7 bull at 373 yards. He's a great guy, and I hope he lives a long healthy life.
Good luck to you. When you're ready for it, give me a call and we'll go elk hunting. Rick
Good luck Marcus, smoke a big one!!Saturday
After work drove to deer camp about 1 hour away to hunt all day sunday. My dad hit a big doe on friday (opener of gun season) but lost the blood trailer after tracking it half mile in to the really thick crap. He did a grid search in the area to try and find blood no luck.
Sunday all day sit nothing this morning hoping the afternoon brings more luck
