Ran over by a car at age 3. Dad was driving. The doctors thought walking may be over for me. Rehabilitation worked. Graduated from high school and immediately enlisted in the Navy. Married an awesome lady and had two children. My dad died in 2000 with alzheimer’s. Nine months later a bleeding ulcer put me in ICU for four days. My weight had topped out at approximately 272 lbs. Lost 100 lbs in eleven months and another seventeen over the next few years.
