This was us in Florida at Christmas in 2013 before surgery. Now in January 2016, we are 7 months out and we each have lost more than 150 pounds each. Our lives are unrecognizable to us now. It's fantastic! We have a lot of work to do, a long road to go, and a lifetime of ensuring we keep with the program and make healthy choices about eating and exercising. But, this has been a reset button for us as fathers, partners, and friends!
