I had LAP-BAND® surgery 6 1/2 years ago. Before surgery I was 322 pounds and had diabetes and high blood pressure. Both went away in 2010, and in 2015 both are still gone.
In the years since surgery I have done many things I could never have done before. In 2011 I raised $5000 for charity and rode my bike 545 miles through California. In 2015 I completed another life goal and completed the Reserve Police Academy. One of the requirements for training was to jump over a 6 foot wall. And each time I wnt over, because I wanted to do it more than once, I smiled. Not because I liked doing it, but because I could!
