My WLS Bucket List

Most Bucket Lists are the things you want to do before you die, mine is the things I want to do as I get healthier and lose more weight, some are things I use to do when I was younger and not so heavy, some I have never done and some will have to wait til #1 is taken care of (hopefully in the next 2 years)
