Describe your life before you had Weight Loss Surgery.

As a young lady I was really fit but as I got older I started to gain weight. My weight has stop me from being able to move around and play with my kids. I wasn’t able to fit on rides at the theme park or even sit on an airplane comfortably without feeling like the straps where super tight around my waste. I also suffered from high blood pressure and preeclampsia with all last 4 of my pregnancies. Chest pains were also very common when I was obese.

How long were you considering Weight Loss Surgery before you came in?
It took me a whole year to actually think about if i wanted to get the surgery. I did not wait because waiting was not going to help my health. I told myself my kids and my husband needs me and I need to live for them.

What was it like to work with our team?
The LVB team was really respectful and did a great job at explaining all the steps of the things I was going to have to go through before getting the surgery.

Describe your life now, after Weight Loss Surgery.

The one thing I love that I can do now is I am able to run around and play with my kids. I can finally wear jeans comfortably and workout without getting winded. I love having energy.
