Lost 75 lbs after Weight Loss Surgery. Los Angeles, CA
I’d been struggling with my weight for years. The day my primary physician told me that “I now weigh enough qualify for GI Bypass Surgery” I spun into a deep depression. Knowing that being 5’7″ at 253 lbs and depressed is not healthy, I knew I had to do something. I was looking at my future and realized that I was on a destructive path. Both my parents are morbidly obese and I knew I didn’t want to end up like them. They have a difficult time playing with the grandchildren, getting up and down stairs, and simply just walking around. I knew I wanted better. I needed better. My daughter needs me.
