this fall... my only options is maybe some texas tournaments. I've lost about 90 lbs since last year and was able to fish a lot more often this spring ...sometimes 5 trips per week so I think I might be in good enough health to go to some tourneys this fall ... had a lot of fun in those at tawakoni and ray hubbard and always wanted to do it again but was afraid my health wouldn;t allow it as it was tough on me back then ... If I can get another hunert off I'll be able to jump over a barn so a few tournaments wouldnt be that tough ... would they

Good deal. I am guessing the tiny nickname was an ironic name?

Brian, I was only 230 lbs when I acquired the nickname but I grew into it reaching over 500 lbs after I hurt my back in 91. I've always been big but the nickname came from a friend that worked for me in 1999 as I guess I reminded him of a drill instructor and he nicknamed me after the song "Tiny Bubbles" which is a cadence song used for marching in the military. Little did I know that I'd one day grow to livestock proportions.. after I hurt my back the doc said if I lost down to 200 lbs he'd operate on my back ... I lost 170 lbs and then my worker's comp shut off and I lost access to my physical therapy and meds ... spent the next two years laying on the floor of my living room watching tv and playing video games to keep from going stir crazy where I got pneumonia and then a few months later Afib so I figured I'd better get up off that floor else I was gonna die soon ... started fishing below keystone dam and got in a little better health but I'd already gained all the weight back plus another buck or so. It was hard to deal with the injury and added weight gain but fishing sort of kept my mind off the pain and still does as it's the only activity I have that I can do and no zombie-out. fishing on top of a lot of morphine and percacets keeps me going. Not sure why I kept going on this history of me but that's sorta how I got over 500 lbs at one point ... back down to about 390 and have plateaued for a long while but plan on buckling down and getting another 100 off this year ... hopefully anyhow.

Glad to hear your getting healthier and feeling better. I've been through a similar situation though not as extreme. I injured my back jumping out of planes for the Army many years ago. After retiring from the Army I let myself go and put on some weight, now, one surgery later, I know the weight makes the back worse, but trying to lose it through exercise makes the back worse... But we gotta do what we gotta do if we want to be able to get around. Good luck Tiny and I hope to read post of your tournament adventures.

Like PartTime, I hope to read of your Tournament successes. Have always appreciated your posts. You have taught me a lot.
Always hope the best for you, regardless of your weight.
