I had been big for as long as I can remember. I tried my best to blend in, but that's hard when you are tall and weigh 350 pounds.
Every man in my family has had major heart issues, including my father. In my mind it was a matter of when, not if, my heart would get me too. My wake up call was being 30 years old and already on blood pressure medication, and Iwasn't able to play with my daughter like I wanted to. My surgery has changed all of that. The gastric sleeve truly changed my life. I'm smallest I've been since I was 14 or 15 years old. I have energy to play with my daughter. Most of all I am happier than I've been in a long time.
