Lost 92 lbs.


“At my highest weight I was 235. I am now 143. It’s not all about the weight. It’s about being healthy. I am a whole new person. Now that I am healthy I am happy.”

“This morning when I stepped on the scale it said 132 after having lost 124 lbs. Part of what having the surgery has given me back is the ability to participate. That’s the most powerful thing of all.”
