Bri says she had wanted to try for a family. My doctor told me that if I didn’t lose weight, I would never have children…I was diagnosed with polycystic ovaries. I’ve lost 170 pounds. I like the fact that I can still live a normal lifestyle, with restrictions.
Dawn let us know that the last time I went to my cardiologist, he did tell me that if I did not make any changes, I would not be here much longer. I’ve lost 146 pounds since my surgery…and I’m still losing.
Erica said her doctor told her she was a metabolic time bomb waiting to go off. I was 40 years old. Two weeks after surgery, my knees feel wonderful, I run every day, I lift weights, I do all that stuff. The only medication I take now is vitamins.

Randy says: When I [couldn’t] bend over to tie my shoes because every time I do it hurt…my knees hurt…there were a lot of deciding factors. I’m a hunter, I’m a fisher – I can do these things now!
Stacey Stated: the day I decided to check into surgery options I weighed 321 pounds. As of September 2014, I am down 156 pounds…if I can get this far, others can do it ‐‐ and do it better than me!
