I'm 53 years old. I'm a General Contractor in the Boston area with a wonderful family!
I've struggled with my weight for about 25 years! I have tried many diets before without success! I have a wonderful person besides me that always supports me in my decisions and for sure I'm counting on her support on this decision too. She's good with following directions and looking forward to a good end results! And that's important to me! Without her help for sure I'll not be able to do so.
I've been having Health problems like my shoulders with a rotated cuff that I had a surgery for on my left shoulder in February 2012 and now I feel so heavy that going up the stairs became difficult for me and my doctor said that my knees will give up on me if don't lose the minimum of 50 pounds. I have cortisone shots every 90 days on my knees to relieve the pain. I even went to the extreme of having Gastric Bypass Surgery in 2003. I lost 60 pounds within 6 months of the surgery but was not able to keep the weight off and I gained everything back within 1 year after the surgery. And it's all because I ‘was not able to control myself and my hunger!
My goal is to lose 60 pounds in 90 days! I need to stop taking strong pain medications that I know are not good for my health and I'm doing this for myself, my wife, my children and I may set good examplo for other people in my situation!
Attached the pictures I'm 290.3 pounds on 07.02.2012 and I'm looking forward to see my New Me at 200 pounds!
