Life is good!

I did not realize that it has been 5 months since my last blog!
They say life can be like a roller coaster. I say that is somewhat of an understatement! So I wanted to write today to tell you how I am doing. I. Reached my first weight loss goal 151 days ago.... I couldn’t believe it either, but yes it has been 5 months! If anybody had told me I could lose all this weight and feel this much better 2 years ago, I would have laughed my butt off. Thinking back at where I was then, there was no way I could have fathomed it. But here I am today..... 200 pounds lighter.... maintained weight loss for 5 months! I feel amazing most of the time! I still have days where my bone disease, degenerative disc disease and arthritis kick my butt, but nowhere near the pain level I had back then.
So, if you are reading this as a newbie to Spark, do not let yourself EVER doubt that you can achieve your goals. YOU ABSOLUTELY CAN! I was wheelchair bound and bedridden with no hope in sight. I had given up on life and was convinced that I would soon no longer exist, leaving behind a wife and 2 kids. But, I found a surgeon who TRULY cared about me and KNEW he could help me. He saved my life! Most recently he helped save hundreds of lives during the tragedy in Las Vegas. If you are someone who has struggled with your weight going up and down like a yo-yo for years on end, DONT GIVE UP! Look at things from a different angle and find a permanent solution. There is one out there, you just have to keep searching for it. Here is my recent photo:
