4 years post-op

So today is the 4 year post-op date of my gastric bypass!! It’s hard to imagine what life was like just 4 years ago. Today I ran my 6th half marathon and broke my personal best times at the 5k, 10k, 15k and half marathon on a difficult course. http://onlineraceresults.com/race/view_individual.php?make_printable=1&bib_num=164&race_id=18081&type=result

My weight loss numbers have not really changed. Lost 370 pounds pre-op and post-op. Currently weigh 230 pounds which is not to shabby. 30 inch reduction in waist, 4-5 inch reduction in neck, 7 shirt sizes smaller. Even my feet are smaller down from 13 to an 11.5.

I eat almost anything I want. My sweet tooth has returned but the running keeps everything in check. If someone told me 4 years ago that I would run a 5k race, let alone a half marathon I would suggest they have their meds adjusted. It’s been an amazing journey an looking forward to the road ahead.

I will try to post a new video of The Update in the next few days.
