After injuring my tailbone I started gaining lots of weight. I could no longer exercise and I topped out at 276 lbs when my doctor warned me that I would be bed bound because I could no longer sit easily. I decided to get a gastric sleeve to help lose weight. I have lost 76 lbs so far and should soon begin exercising again. I only have 50 more pounds to go before I am back to my target weight of 150 lbs!
