April 14, 2017 575lbs
Friday, April 14, 2017
My name is Tim Cogdill, I live in Olathe, KS, I'm 41 and weigh 575lbs, down from 800lbs on January 1st. I have a mass (called a pannus) on my lower body that weighs 100-200lbs. I have been bed bound since entering the hospital. I am scheduled for surgery on the 20th of April to remove the pannus. I am also working with physical therapy to walk again as I've been unable to walk since entering the hospital. Still can't stand but hopefully that'll improve with surgery. I can be reached at www.persistenttim@gmail.
So it's been a week since my last video and 3 1/2 since my last weigh in, on March 24 I was 638lbs and now I'm 575lbs, that's 53lbs gone in about a month. I've been down with flu B and not online much, feeling a better now and no longer isolated. I got a picc line put in, I'll show you that at the end of the video. I'm exercising more which is really taxing, I'm sleepy a lot but that is also due to the meds. People keep telling me I look better, I guess due to getting over the flu and maybe the weight loss too. You guys rock! Thanks for all the support, the prayers, the encouragement, inspiration, and genuine concern. I may not do another new video before Thursday but I'll make one to be uploaded in the event surgery doesn't go well. Thank you all for everything, I truly hope we meet someday, the support I've found online has given me so much faith in people. I love you all!
I'm truly sorry we have to ask for a handout but I've made bad decisions in life and find myself in a bad spot, thank you for sharing this page if possible. www.gofundme.com/800lbs
