Default Over 800 pounds to 240 pounds...Amazing!!

No it's not a typo!!!

It's the story of Big Pete, can't remember his last name right now.

Weight loss surgery saved his life and tomorrow Feb 10th he will be on Oprah

Here is a link to his website

What a huge change in the guy! From hulk to hunk. I'll try to remember to watch this afternoon.
Thanks for posting the website.

This was a real eye opening program. Poor Pete, did you see him walk? It just looked so painful, but honestly, thank god he can now walk!

OMG, I *just* saw this on Oprah today (I'm in the Netherlands and we are a couple weeks behind North America)!!! I mean, literally I just saw it less than 30 minutes ago!!! This guy is so amazing!

There were some other success stories on there and I felt like bawling my head off as each one came out with their "new" body! (Course I couldn't, 'cause I'm at work...)

Sure, Jiff! Show off your metric conversiona abilities!

Welcome, Ren, and great stats! I am not a candidate for WLS but snoop here a lot and try to keep Jiff humble when Peachie isn't here.
