I've always been big my entire life. I never let my weight keep me from having fun, even if I did miss out on a lot of things. I have always been with my kids and enjoyed their moments I just often could not participate with them such as theme parks. I was always holding the bookbags and drinks while everyone else was riding the coasters. At the same time I booked mine and my wife's gastric sleeves I also booked our annual passes to Universal Studios Orlando so this year I could ride the rides with my kids. We both are 5 weeks post op. I am 50 pounds lighter and my wife is down 30 pounds. At 314 pounds currently, I am the lowest weight I have been in 28 years! Down several sizes already in pants and shirts, feel better, off my diabetes and blood pressure medicine. Different people say they do it for various reasons. My reason was and is to stay on this Earth another 30+ years so I can get in the floor and play with grandchildren and ride rollercoasters with my three kids. The other stuff is gravy... no medicines, no online shopping for 6x clothing, fitting on the airplanes without worrying about seatbelt extenders and other passengers, less joint pain, less back pain, and the list goes on. BEST DECISION I EVER MADE AND AT 49 YRS OLD!!!!
