My battle with weight has been a long one

My battle with weight has been a long one.  As a boy growing up it was hard going to school being teased by kids calling me fat.

My brothers as well would tease me so I just ate more and was depressed not knowing what would happen as an adult to  my body.

I had type 2 diabetes, high blood pressure and I weighed 345lbs.  I said I have to do something now so I decided to have gastric bypass surgery, and since my surgery I have lost 130 pounds!

I’m running 5 miles a day, I’m eating more fruits and vegetables and I feel great!
