After gaining back the majority of the weight I lost I am turning to weight-loss surgery

It's 2015. I have been gone from blogging and gone from weight loss. I am 475 lbs now and am looking into weight loss surgery to help me achieve what I had before. I have proven to myself I can lose the weight, now I just need to do it as efficiently as possible without putting the rest of my life on the back burner like I had to last time.

I am attending a meeting tomorrow with Rocky Mountain Associated Physicians tomorrow @ 10am.

This is the information you will get via email after signing up.

Weight Loss Surgery Presentation
           Invitation Reminder
Dear Patient,

Thank you for registering for Rocky Mountain Associated Physicians Weight Loss Surgery presentation on Saturday August 8th10:00 AM.  This FREE seminar is taught by one of our Surgeons, as well as the Education Director.  Together they will discuss FOUR different weight loss surgeries in detail, addressing the risks and benefits associated with them.

The Seminar lasts about an hour and a half.  Feel free to bring along a friend, however, we ask that no children attend.  This is a “no pressure” informational learning time.  Your questions are encouraged.

If you have already decided that you would like to proceed with the surgery and would like to get the process going as quickly as possible, please complete the attached document.  Bring it with you to the seminar, along with your health insurance card, and give it to the education director before the seminar begins.  We’ll then inform you of your next step at that time.

Please let us know if you are unable to attend so that we may offer your seat to another guest.

  1. Good luck, man. No matter how we get to our healthiest selves, what counts is that we never quit. Proud of you!

  2. Let us know how we can best support you in this effort. We love you and are so proud of any healthy steps you choose to improve your quality of life. We need you in our lives and are looking forward to many years of family fun. I'll be running my first half marathon in October. You are my inspiration!

  3. I support you, and while I don't have any experience with it - I don't think surgery is the way to go. I'm sure you've already thought about it long and hard and I can't change your mind, just don't rush into it. You could be healthy even if that's not what your BMI says. If you just eat healthy food and take moderate exercise you will be healthy. Weight really isn't everything if your goal is health.

    Best of luck
