It has been just over 9 months since I had my Gastric Sleeve surgery. I can not even begin to describe the rush of emotions I feel on a daily basis. I never knew I could feel this good or look so good. When you live in a body of over 300 pounds for 38 years, it's impossible to know what you would look like as a thinner, healthier person. I am still taken back every time I see myself in the mirror. I still have to look twice some days. I have never known what it was like to weigh in the 200's, not that I remember anyway, and now I am on the cusp of being UNDER 200 pounds. If i can lose another 3 pounds, I will be in onederland!! It has been an incredible ride and a thrilling one to be on. Thanks to all my friends for the support they have shown! Thanks to my loving family, especially my wife, who has been on this journey with me and has had to deal with so my ups and downs in my health over the years. Most of all, thanks goes to the greatest person in the universe, our loving God. I couldn't have made it this far without His love and grace!
