I have always struggled with my weight.  I was introduced to a weight loss program associated with Dr. LeGrand in 2017.  The program required me to complete classes and see a psychologist before qualifying for weight loss surgery, all of which I completed.

After discussing my options with Dr. LeGrand, I decided to have gastric bypass surgery done.  I knew that it was going to be hard work.  I would have to put in the work with proper nutrition and exercise.  I have been very pleased with my results.  I lost 138 pounds and feel very blessed.

Keeping the weight off hasn’t been easy.  I’ve experienced several setbacks since my surgery and have put weight back on.  I know Dr. LeGrand will help me.  He and his staff assist in nutrition, exercise and other forms of weight loss counseling besides just surgery.  I just hope my story helps someone prepare for their weight loss journey.
