“Even as I struggled for years with obesity, I wanted to be part of everything, but often felt that my weight prevented me from being included. I can honestly say I became disgusted with myself. I even hated looking at myself in the mirror. I felt like I had tried everything and nothing worked or was going to work. I felt hopeless.
Since my Gastric Bypass in September of 2011, I have lost 149 pounds and I feel like everything has changed. I love the ‘new’ me. I love to show off and I love looking at myself in the mirror. For the first time in years, I can enjoy the simplest things.
Finally, I know how life should be – happy and healthy. I wish I would have known about this amazing surgery much earlier in my life. For me, bariatric surgery has meant the end of my bitter battle with obesity.”
