Emmaus • Down 125 pounds
Laparoscopic Gastric Bypass

Struggling with weight my whole life, I didn’t fully realize how much it prevented me from truly experiencing joy in every aspect of my life. Having weight loss surgery and finally being at a healthy, normal weight didn’t just change my life – it gave me life in a new way. I no longer have negative “weight-worry” thoughts and can enjoy life’s simple pleasures like riding a bike again. Support is critical – my husband, family and friends supported me – and the team at St. Luke’s was there every step of the way. Knowing that my support system is strong, I know that I can do anything I put my mind to!
