Sleeved or not sleeved:
I have had a gastric sleeve.
Growing up in a Puerto Rican household is not easy on weight control. Family gatherings are all about food. I remember the 2nd bullet point in every conversation about a gathering was what everyone was bringing. The first was whose place. Arroz con gandules, pernil, platanos maduro, ymmmmmm.

12 years ago I began dating my wife and I was at 240 lbs. She was a little thing. 5'6" wore a size 0 and XS. I remember people just looked at us as an odd couple. her eating habits were so good. she didn't eat pork, drink or eat anything with high fructose, and did very well with carbs. I on he other hand, pretty much ate everything she wouldn't. Over the years it has taken its toll on me. I an effort to get my weight under control I have given up pork, soda, junk food, not totally but for the most part I am more under control about it.

I have joined gyms, tried every fad diet and pill and while I can get my weigh down a bit, it is not permanent. Now that I am 41 years old, I refuse to go forward with carrying all this weight.
Orlando, FL
I cant say I have a specific hobby.
