Patrick Deuel's Valentine Goal

February 14, 2005, 5:10 PM by Jaine Andrews

Patrick Deuel's Valentine Goal


Valentine's Day has special significance for many people, but none more so than Patrick Deuel. You may remember that Patrick Deuel's hometown is Valentine, Nebraska, so you can imagine how special this holiday is now that he's back after nearly right month in a Sioux Falls hospital.

Today marks the 23rd day Deuel has been home after undergoing gastric bypass surgery and losing more than 460-pounds from his once 1, 072 pound body. Deuel says he's been spending his time at home doing strengthening exercises, and experimenting with his diet to find out which foods his new stomach will tolerate, and which foods it won't.

But all the while, he says, he's also been focused on one goal: To take a walk with his sweetheart, wife Edie, in Valentine on Valentine's Day. Patrick Deuel says, " I have been doing this losing weight and stuff like that, some for me. But the bulk of what I'm doing, the bulk of what I'm trying to accomplish I'm doing for her."

So did he reach that goal? You'll have to checkout our next HealthBeat to find out. We'll also bring you up to speed on how Patrick Deuel is progressing since he left Sioux Falls.
