I’m a 26 year old mother of two very active kids ages two and five. Being over weight was very hard on my kids. I couldn’t keep up with them or play ball. Just taking them to the park was a challenge. I had the Gastric Bypass in January of 2010 and it was the best decision I ever made! I was very blessed to have the love and support of my husband and family. The weight started coming off immediately after surgery. It has been almost six months and so far I have lost 100 lbs. I’m a whole new person. I'm happier, healthier, and full or energy to keep up with my kids.
