"I decided to have surgery because of my health and the way that I looked and felt. The procedure was fun for me because I looked forward to what I was going to feel like later. All I could think of was happiness and excitment and just couldn't wait to do it. I just regret that I didn't do this sooner."

Betty - Lost 54 lbs Post Surgery

"When my son told me I was going to be a grandmother, I knew that it was time to start changing my lifestyle a little if I wanted to be here to play with her and just to watch her grow. I'm able to do things now that I wasn't able to before. It's the best decision I've ever made."

Shannon - Lost 130 lbs Post Surgery

"I found myself looking in the mirror wondering where the happy, loving person that I once was had gone, and when this overweight unhappy person took over my life. I did not want to be the mom who had to sit and just watch as the kids played. I wanted to be running and playing with them and enjoying life."
