One Year Post Op and Down 163 Pounds

Jan 04, 2009

WOW I can hardly believe it has been a year since I had my surgery. I would say the biggest surprise was that I fell into somewhat of a depression while learning how to use my new tool. But in the end it has all been worth it! I would do this over again in a heartbeat. Below are some of my exciting stats:  

Pants - waste tight 42 to a comfortable 32
Shirt - 4XL Big to a normal XL
Boxers - XL to M  

I am no longer tired when I do things. I have started Snow Skiing again and I am full of energy. In fact on my Anniversary I washed both my truck and car as well as vacuumed and detailed them both…. all in 33 degree weather!  

As I sat down to write this I thought I would have a lot more to say as I have been thinking about how much my life has changed and how much happier I am now compared to before… Unfortunately I can really put it in words… It is just how life is now. I am happy again!
