My Weight Loss Story
I tried dieting for years, but every attempt eventually resulted in more weight gain. At 400 pounds, a size 56” pants, 5 XL tshirt and a size 22 dress shirt, I finally decided to have the Gastric Bypass.
There were many experiences that led to my decision to have weight loss surgery including snapping a friend’s chair, getting kicked off a roller coaster in front of several of my friends, having to ask for seat belt extenders when I traveled and avoiding certain restaurants because I knew that I would not fit in their booths. I woke up one day and realized that I wouldn’t be around for my children if I didn’t make a change.
Weight loss surgery is the best decision I made for my health. I have completed dozens of triathlons, multiple marathons, a 104 mile run in 28.5 hours. I created a website, www.trimywill.com to track my progress and to share my story with people who are looking to change their lives.
