    1. To possibly add a few days/ weeks/months/years to my life.

    2. To get offf my diabetes medication and not suffer from the complications of diabetes....I have been off the meds 7 months now and the reading are all good. Blood sugar this morning of 120...a little high, but there was a birthday party for a friend last night. Ate a little more than normal and foods I don't normally's been ranging 95-105 which is good.

    3. To not be the fat man in the room. It's kind of nice to catch women giving me the twice over again.

    4. To be able to buy clothes from the normal section of the store rather than seek out the Big Man shop or section. Might as well call it the fat man shop since I am not 6'8" and really am a big man who has trouble finding clothes that fit. At 5'10", it's simply the fat man section..
