I was 450 pounds. My job as a national account manager for a large company took me to casinos. Something strange started to happen there. I began noticing the older patrons at the casinos. In wheelchairs. With oxygen tanks. Without legs. Was I really willing to gamble that my physical problems weren’t a gruesome sign of things to come? Was I going to end up like these guys? Sitting in a wheelchair barely able to play the slot machines?My concern couldn't be contained any longer. My worry began to expand and crackle like popcorn in a microwave. It couldn't be ignored.The nutritionist told me that the way I was eating was slowing down my metabolism. As a result, even though I was active, I wasn't losing the weight.Armed with a food plan that required eating balanced meals several times a day, and a commitment to the weight-loss surgery, I lost 30 pounds in two months.I learned that, typically, doctors doing bariatric surgery require potential patients to lose some weight prior to the surgery for two reasons. One, the less fat around the tissues and under the skin, the less complicated the surgery tends to be. Secondly, the medical team wants to be assured that the patient is willing to make the lifestyle changes that are necessary for weight loss. I discovered that weight-loss surgery effectively provides patients like me with a window in which to make changes. Surgeons will tell you that you have to cut out the bad habits because you can't make a habit of being cut.There were those who questioned my decision, as mentioned in the beginning, but I was resolute. After listening to the doctors and doing the research, I opted for the gastric bypass surgery. The sleeve and the lap band didn't appeal to me, and the bypass has the best record of success. I was committed.

La Cappella Pontano, situata nel centro antico di Napoli, merita molta attenzione, perché davvero è “l’edificio del centro antico di più alta rilevanza letteraria per la presenza, sia all'esterno che all'interno, di numerose iscrizioni latine dettate dallo stesso poeta”, come si è espresso Carlo Raso. L’autore ne presenta le iscrizioni dell’interno e dell’esterno, con immagini, trascrizioni, traduzioni e commento.
