beautiful day

a little over a year ago, i was at one of the worst points in my life.  although i had a loving wife, two beautiful children and a good job, i was miserable.  i weighed a little over 400 pounds and my health was spiraling out of control.  i didn't know what to do.

most of you know what happened next.  i had gastric surgery and it changed my life.  fast forward to today...i've lost over 100 pounds and i feel like i've gotten my life back.  this post isn't meant to inspire or anything like that.  but it's an anniversary i'm blessed to be able to celebrate.  a year ago, i wasn't sure if i would make it another year.  high blood pressure, high cholesterol and diabetes were just some of the things working against me.

now, i'm off of the medication i was taking for all of those ailments.  i have more energy than i've had in the past 10 years.  i have a renewed outlook on life.  most of all, i'm alive.  and for that, i'm eternally grateful.
