The ABCs of beating morbid obesity.

Nothing worth having comes without cost.  In this case, the cost is massively outweighed by the future opportunity. 

My numbers don't lie, but they aren't everything. I've been a success and a failure... in so many things.  My reality is a structural change.  Fro…
