Diabetics. High blood pressure, knee/back pain, age, mental problems and hopelessness.
These were some of the reasons Why I had to deal with my self image. Surgery is just one of the tools I'm using. My church, psy therapy, gym, family relationships and food choices along with various support groups are important.

Sleeve Sept2015 update

It's been one year. Im down 90 lbs. my doctor says I can go for removal of the apron hanging below my waist. Hopefully it will be paid for by insurance. Expecting that will take off another 5 lbs. I go to the gym, eat small amounts of energy foods and stay greatful for my life. Pictures later

One year later
