“There’s a million ways that weight loss has changed my life. I can bend down and pick up my shoes and socks so much more easily now. Now I have no excuse to tell my wife as to why they haven’t been picked up! It’s the tiny tasks that make the difference. The first time after surgery I got on an airplane, I didn’t need a seatbelt extender. The first time I went out to a restaurant and I didn’t have to slide the seat back. For the first time, I felt like people weren’t wondering what my beautiful wife was doing with a guy like me. It’s the silly things that really shouldn’t matter, but do.”
“Anyone who’s dealing with a weight problem knows exactly what I’m talking about. To be able to go and buy clothes that are somewhat in fashion means all the difference in the world. To be able to go to a store and find something that fits me and not have to sneak off to the XXXL section of the store has been fantastic. The worry over not worrying about whether I’m having a heart attack or heartburn has now dissipated. I came off one of my blood pressure medications. I got up one morning and played 18 holes of golf and then went home and my wife and I hopped on mountain bikes and road all the way to the North Carolina line. I had even been to the gym earlier that morning. That would have NEVER happened before. It was hilarious that we packed that all in one day. I was sore the next day. I’m not going to lie to you! My activity level is up. I enjoy walking now. It’s affected every aspect of my life. Peace of mind is probably the biggest. It’s great to wake up in the morning and not have to worry about having an extra 200 pounds on my body. Am I going to die today? That’s a real fear and real thought that went through my head.”
