Many of you know about the mega weight loss, those that don't, here's the skinny.
Long story, so I'll try to make it short and sweet.
2/01/01 - I weighed 550+ pounds and had the Gastric By-Pass surgery on this day.
5/20/03 - I now weigh 290 pounds. however, since I lost 200+ pounds I now have 20+ pounds of extra skin. No matter how much I work out, there is NO WAY I can tighten it back up or lose it. As follow up to the first surgery, the second part is to have a tummy tuck (remove the excess skin).
5/29/03 - Plastic surgery day. I'll be out of the hospital in a day or two, but it's gonna' take 4-6 weeks of recovery. No golf, no riding, no lifting, etc.

For those that have the twisted minds: *
NO, I am not having a sex change...
NO, I am not getting a BOOB JOB... * *
NO, I am not getting 'little' TANK enlarged. *
Did I miss any? *
Anyway, in less than 10 hours, I am going to have one big ass tummy tuck. *For those of sick nature, they are going to remove 20+ pounds of excess skin. *I can't believe how many times someone has asked me 'So, how much are saying they are going to remove? *I know it sounds gross, but I am curious' * *I'll never be a swimsuit model, but I will finally have somewhat of a figure. *
After going from a size 64 waist to 48 (current), I am guessing I will be under 40 after my surgery. *With that said, not only will I be buying a bunch of new clothes, I am going to buy a new leather jacket and pants and possibly a new textile jacket as well. *
All I ask of you is this....Over the next 4 to 6 weeks, during my recovery, ride a few extra miles for Good Ole' TANK. *
