It’s that time of year again where I get the distinct pleasure of reminding my LiberalOC colleague, Managing Editor Dan Chmielewski, that he is older than me.

I rarely pay attention to that rule, except for on his birthday.

Two Years and Still Thankful

While November 24 is the actual anniversary, it was two years ago Monday that I made the decision to have gastric bypass surgery. Two years later, I’m down a total of 160 pounds. I had lost a total of 170 by May but I had some minor surgery this summer that preventing me from working out so I actually put on a few pounds. The weight has stablized and now I’m in maintenance mode. Still, the gastric bypass surgery has been a positive development and one I’m thankful I chose.
