Roux-en-Y Gastric Bypass Surgery
Weight Loss: 140 pounds

“…people I love can now put their arms around me.”

I made the decision to have surgery not just for me, but for the people who love and need me. You see, I wasn’t very happy. The weight was killing me and my spirit. My husband was sent to Iraq the month before my surgery. When he came back, he came back to the same person, but a more light-hearted and happier one. It means a lot to know that people I love can now put their arms around me again.
