    Thanks for joining in, I thought this was a fun one. I am impressed 240lbs in 15 months. I lost 40 in about a year and I just lost another 25 in 2 months. But 240 ROCKS!!

    Very cool stuff man! What amazed me is I have NEVER heard of the Duodenal Switch before. I just had Gastric Bypass surgery 3 months ago(75+ lbs down, woot!), and I researched the hell out of it. Apparently I didn’t research as much as I thought.. lol.. Not sure if I would have gone a different way or not, but it would have been nice to have known so I could have factored that into my decision… Thanks for sharing man, I relate with A TON of what you had to say in that post..

    240 pounds in 14 months! That is absolutely awesome Shoe! You should be proud of yourself! I actually just lost 30 pounds in 2 months primarily through exercise, stress(not a good thing), and diet, so I am pretty proud with myself about that. I feel so much better losing those extra pounds and I’m in better physical shape than I have been in since I was in my teens(I’m 33 years old now – my hair is thinning to prove it!). That is also really interesting that you have never read a book cover to cover. I used to read a lot of fiction cover to cover, but generally with non-fiction I just read bits and pieces of it as well. Anyways, thanks for sharing this info about yourself. Have a great weekend Shoe!:-)

    I have the same problem Shoe with concentration! I have never been diagnosed with attention deficit disorder, but I am sure that I have it, because I have been like that all my life, jumping from one thing to another. The only time I seem to be able to concentrate is when I am absolutely exhausted or have exercised extensively. I have been diagnosed with depression, since my early twenties, and I know that plays a great part in my conentration, but even when I am feeling good I can’t seem to concentrate! So glad I’m not the only one with this problem. You are a real inspiration to me Shoe. All the best. Chris H.

    Yeah believe me I do..recently left a firm were I had no boss pretty much, all in search of the dream man. But I’m relentless in my quest for greatness as are you my friend.

    That’s funny – I used to work at John Deere in Moline. I lived in Bettendorf. Revealed was my ISP. Maybe I talked to you on the phone!

    Congrats on the keeping the weight off! Being a lifelong fitness professional, I commend you and hope you stick with it. Lifestyle choices will make or break it! Hang in there!
