Well where do I begin. My name is BK I am a divorced father of 2 amazing boys.
I have always had a hard time maintaining my weight, but after I got married I stopped trying. I got married at approx 230 lbs and before i knew it it was 7 yrs later and I had ballooned to 342 lbs. My marriage was in shambles as I had become a prisoner to my embarrassment. I hardly ever left the house. I went to work and I cam home. I avoided contact with the outside world. I could just tell everytime I greeted someone they were asking themselves "how could he let himself get that fat". I really avoided people I hadn't seen in a long time as I really hated see the look of utter shock when they saw how big I had gotten. My defense to this was to avoid seeing people. My home liffe really suffered as I forced my self imposed prison sentence on my family. I stopped taking my kids to the park or playing ball with them. I think back now and I remember my father running along side my oldest son as he was learning to ride a 2 wheel bike. That was my job and I was unable to do my job. My anger and frustration with myself turned into a depression and caused the demise of my marriage.
After i got divorced i decided I could either eat myself to death or do something about it. Diets had failed and my health was deteriorating. My Dr suggested Gastric bypass and I did some research of my own. It seemed like the answer to my prayers. A do over in life. I have never even had a broken bone and now here I was preparing to have major surgery.
Well fast forward to 1.5 yrs later and I have lost 142 lbs and I am a completely a new person. I am now the hands on father I have always wanted to be. I am looing forward to running along side my 3 yr old as he learns to ride a bike. I am now an assistant coach on my boys Baseball team I play tennis and have even taken out my bike which had been in storage for about 8 yrs. Life is truly beautiful. My ex wife and I have become good friends and we share custody of the boys and support each other in our quest to be happy.
