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.
