Patient Success Stories - Meet Lisa Printer Friendly Version Printer Friendly Version Share

Meet LisaWhat was the biggest challenge or concern that led you to decide to have weight loss surgery?
The idea of losing over 100 pounds was overwhelming.  After a lifetime of failing at diets and trying to exercise the weight off, I decided it was time for some help.

Lisa Before and AfterWhat type of weight loss surgery did you have?
Gastric Bypass

How much weight have you lost?
At 12 months out, I have lost 95 pounds.

How has weight loss surgery changed your life?
My weight does not define me and food does not control me.  I feel better, I look better, people respond to me differently, and my self-confidence is better.  Getting dressed and shopping are fun and not a dreaded chore.  I now eat to live and I don’t miss one thing about my old life!
