i was diagnosed as a diabetic in november 2007 when i started the lab work to have a gastric bypass. i began my lifestyle change on january 23rd, because remember it isn't dieting, it's a lifestyle change!! With the assistance of my beautiful wife Blanca, i started at a weight of 404 lbs. and as of today, i weigh 345 lbs. i have dropped 59 lbs so far, and i feel awesome. my goal is to be one of the founding members of the "250 lb Club" with the best friend any guy could ever have, Wesley P. He has recently decided to take control of his life as well, and even has a page on here, too!. SHOUT OUT to my homie, WES!!!..anyhoo, since dropping this weight, i have changed my mind and decided to drop the remaining weight the old fashioned way...LIPOSUCTION...ha, ha...just kidding!. SWEAT and TEARS, baby!..i have found a strength i never knew existed in me and i can't wait to get my homie rolling along as well. our dream is to take a kick butt vacation and not have to worry about our weight holding us down from a full and memorable experience. i hope i can motivate the rest of you fatties out there to get off the couch and get moving on taking back what we so freely gave up....OUR LIVES!!!..
already have dropped 59 pounds, so need 95 to get to 250...
