Before & After Weight-Loss Surgery
"I now have energy to play with my kids after working a 12 hour day. When I take them to the park I can go down the slides with them and my family loves to go to Disneyland and ride all of the rides together."
"I've learned how to eat better and wanted to do this for myself to avoid the risk of diabetes, which runs in my family."
"Before my surgery, my husband would take our dog for hikes in the canyon and I would be trailing behind. I was out of breath, tired and felt as though I was experiencing heart failure."
"Before bariatric surgery, I was diabetic and had high blood pressure, high cholesterol, sleep apnea and constant pain. My activities were limited more and more with each passing day."
"The surgery I had saved my life! I went from a size 36 dress size to a size 10. I'm able to visit my grandchildren and see a movie with them in the theater and sit in a normal-sized seat."
"At 412 pounds I was told by my doctor that if I did not lose the weight, I would die."
"Since my surgery I have successfully maintained a 160 pound weight loss and am living an active and fulfilling lifestyle."
"My journey has been amazing. Seven months after my surgery I was able to complete a 26 mile bike marathon with my sons and I felt great!"
