Krista's StoryI had been over weight for most of my life. After getting married in my late twenties my weight became a major health issue. At 340 lbs my life had become a dismal rotation of work, eat and sleep. A simple trip to Wal-Mart felt more like a marathon.
After years of failed diets and weight loss programs, I decided to attend the bariatric program information session that a coworker told me about. From that first meeting I knew that in order to improve my health and well-being I had to take the first step.
I met many new friends attending the support group meetings. The doctors and the staff are very supportive and encouraging in every aspect of the process. Even after you reach your goal they encourage you to continue attending support groups and dietary consult to help you stay on track with eating healthy and making the right choices.
After losing 197 lbs. I feel like my life has just began. A walk through the mall is a joy instead of a struggle. Even after losing the first 25 lbs. on the pre surgery diet I felt so much better. Most people think looking good is the most important thing about weight loss. But I have found that feeling good outweighs looking good any day.
