Lori's Story

Before: 290 lbs. Now: 210 lbs.

"I got to a point where I had tried everything else and I was tired of struggling. Everything else in my life was pretty close to perfect, but I just wasn't happy with my weight. At first, everyone thought I was crazy for wanting to have weight-loss surgery; I always presented myself well. But I wanted to do this to feel better about myself. It was a personal thing. I knew I was ready to do it and I went for it. I love knowing that I have my health back. I workout with a trainer and I feel so much healthier. Whenever I gain a few pounds, I remember how bad it was before and how much more hope I have because of the surgery. I feel so much more freedom in my life now."
