So happy that I chose to have gastric surgery. I didn’t do it for vanity, I did it for my health, and to correct a hernia. Id idn’t want to end up on medications later on in life, like my mother. She has diabetes, amongst many other issues. I am happy that I made a lifestyle change. 5 dress sizes and 32 lbs since 4/14/14. I’m glad that I put myself first and I will be healthy, not only for myself, but for my family.
