i could rave on for hours telling you how this has changed my life, but at the end of the day it wouldn't be enough; no not by half. so lets sick with the facts. "the facts sir, just the facts."

first of all, highest recorded weight #420 (i couldn't find a scale that could go higher) i was hospitalized 3 times for weight related problems, twice for cellulitis, once for mastoiditis, and i had sleep apnea (undiagnosed by a physician, but known by my family). i was so big that sex was nothing short of a miracle, when it did happen though it took a bit of luck to make the soldier stand and fight, but alas, not fight, but retreat! blood sugar was over 130 regularly, but i had the good sense to stay away from the doctors. blood pressure was usually not under 130/88.

after surgery, all of those issues are resolved! and bp? 116/68. weight? #266.0 this morning.
was wearing size 56 key brand bib overalls. now i usually wear a size 40 wrangler jeans
the before and after pics speak for themselves. that kitchen door in the pics is 32" not including the trim.
any questions. call me 325-203-2039 jerry i would be glad to tell you all about it!
