The main reason I had weight loss surgery was so I could be more active with my kids. I struggled with low energy and felt like my weight was keeping me from being the best mother I could be. I thankfully did not have any diagnosed medical problems before surgery but I was started to develop high blood pressure. I am confident I would have quickly developed many medical issues had I not chosen to have the surgery when I did.

I’ve struggled with my weight my entire life but gained over 100 pounds in the last 5 years. I tried to manage it myself but was clearly failing. I finally decided that I had to do something to lose the weight not only for myself but for my family as well. I am so thankful that I made this decision!

The team has been beyond helpful and supportive throughout my entire journey! I have never hesitated to call with questions. They have been great to work with my busy schedule. I also enjoyed that several of the staff members I had contact with throughout the process had the surgery as well. Talking to someone who has been through the same things as you was very comforting.

I am so much more comfortable in my body now! I enjoy being more active with my high energy toddlers. I no longer have to say “sorry, mommy is too tired” when my kids challenge me to a race or ask me to go play outside. Now I can say let’s go!
