Surgery: June 30, 2015 at Norton's Hospital, Louisville, KY by Dr. Jefferey Allen

Then: 495 pounds

Now: 163 poinds

Lost: 332 pounds

Issues: None

Next up: Skin removal surgery scheduled for Jan 12th at Stony Brook University Hospital here on Long Island (NY). First round will be the trunk surgeries. Next fall, the arm and thigh surgeries will take place.

Size then: 72" waist, 6X shirts

Size Now: 31" waist, small/med shirts

Overall, this has been the hardest and most rewarding thing I have ever done. I am not the same person I was before surgery, I don't even look like that guy...at all. The only way people can believe I was that heavy is if they actually knew me then or I show them the tattoos and they match them up to the picture I keep. I keep one...and only one...because it is from my sister's wedding.

Then there's the "new" me.This is me with my Dad a few months ago.

I'm pretty happy with it all...and it only gets better.
