Weight-Loss Surgery

Melanie
Total Lost: 99 lbs.

"Before my surgery, my husband would take our dog for hikes in the canyon and I would be trailing behind. I was out of breath, tired and felt as though I was experiencing heart failure. Now, I am the one up early on Sunday morning ready to take our dog for a hike. I'm up to five miles uphill and it's such a great feeling to be able to not only walk up the mountain, but to pass my husband and have more energy than our dog."
