I was very much in shape and fit until I broke my neck in 2000. After that, I had to give up my life long passion for martial arts and slowly gained weight over the next 12 years. I developed diabetes and it is progressing quickly. I have about 60lbs to lose and am eager to stop or slow the diabetes and become active again. I also look forward to spending more time dating. Physical fitness used to be such a part of who I was and I look forward to reversing this unhealthy momentum. I am having surgery March 21, 2013 with Dr. Alejandro Lopez Orgeta.

Update 11/21/2013. I have lost 65lbs, got rid of gastroparesis stomach condition, migraines gone, off some diabetes meds and A1C numbers are amazing, cholesterol went from 550 to 180. Feel great, dating beautiful women, life is so much better. The surgery has been a total life changer. Life is amazing.
