Since I had Lap-Band weight loss surgery, changed my life, and lost more than 200 pounds, I find myself doing things I never thought I would. Writing a book about healthy living is high on that list. My goal with this book is to reach someone reading it with a head full of wrong ideas about themselves and their life. That’s where I was when all of this began. I had lost all perspective on my own life. This challenge, with every passing day and every pound lost, has helped me see where I fit. The real world is much bigger than the one I was living in at 460 pounds. I hope these pages help you see that life is bigger than you believe it to be and help you take the first steps to getting out of your own way.
