I was 221 lbs so down 199 from my starting weight of 420. Â I wanted to lose 210 lbs to be half the person I used to be, but after four three months of working downtown I had stabilized here and I thought this would be a good weight to make my new home. Â Maybe surgery would remove 10 lbs of whatever and I would reach my target but this seemed unlikely.

Receptionist: Well, I’m sure the anesthesiologist is good too. Â Have a nice day, actuary.
