Q. Tell us about yourself.

A. I grew up on my family’s farm, and I have a strong passion for agriculture. I love life, family, and the outdoors. I had the gastric sleeve surgery a little over a year ago, and I just feel like a brand new person.

Q. What motivated you to have bariatric surgery?

A. I was 20 years old and weighed 418 pounds. I knew I had to do something or my life was going to be hard and possibly shortened due to increased health risks.

Q. How long had you been struggling with obesity prior to your surgery?

A. I had been struggling with obesity for 4-5 years. I missed out on fun things with friends because of my weight.

Q. What would you say to someone who is considering bariatric surgery, but is nervous about doing so?

A. I would tell them to do it. It may seem scary, but the benefits and results are well worth it.

Q. What health conditions did you have prior to surgery?

A. I experienced sore knees and shortness of breath. Now I don’t experience any of that.

Q. Tell us about a moment in which you were most proud of your weight loss success.

A. I was proud when a long time friend said they didn’t even recognize me. It gave me a sense of accomplishment.

Q. Why did you choose Louisiana Center for Weight Loss Surgery?

A. I had heard from several family friends who had the surgery and chose LCWLS. They had nothing but great experiences. I would recommend it to anyone. It is a life-changing experience, and you will be so glad you did it.
