my first post to this group

Probably because I just found it,, my story in a nutshell,and I will support anyone. I weighed 450 pounds, I mat my future wife and her hcp daughter ( read my posts, many pics posted of Tess) I decided 7 years ago to have the total bypass. I about died as I bled out 1 month after surgery because all the sutures didn't hold. EMT's could not get a BP measure on me when they got to my house. I was in hosp for 7 days.
Since then,,no issues,,I still puke once in a while, mostly my fault because of what eating and how to chew. But I have been at 210-220 lbs for 5 years..

I have lived the weight loss life,, there is no easy way,,whatever you do ,takes commitment.

I am here to talk to anyone who wants to talk about this.

2. There are no health issues that

can't be helped with diet and exercise.

3. I would add the word almost to your line.

While I agree that diet and exercise have kept me in check for years. There are more than likely some issues like depression and others that get into the way. I know a number of people that did the diet and exercise thing only. Some made it through, some just found the pain of exercise to be too much and the surgery gave them the pain free kick start to change their lives. As with any issue, there are multiple sides, but I do not believe either side is 100% foolproof or correct.

4. I wouldn't call it a cure.

But the right amount, might only be waving your hand and everyone can improve their diet at least a little at a time.

Exercise is almost equal to talk therapy according to many studies. I can attest to that.

5. I checked my posts

and never used the word "cure" I see it as a tool just like anything else.

I am happy that you found something that worked for you. It seems we have different views on this subject, at lease how I read it, so I will just wish continued health and happiness.
