I have always been the “bigger” girl. My weight has been a struggle for as long as I can remember. I have tried every diet plan under the sun and would lose weight here and there but nothing significant that would keep me motivated to keep going. At just 27 years old, I weighed 300 pounds and finally decided to take the leap and have weight loss surgery. Since my surgery my life has changed in many ways. I can actually play and run with my kids without being out of breath or exhausted after two minutes. I enjoy exercising! I’m more confident with my body and I no longer hide under baggy clothes. I can also cross my legs! (Girls, you know how big of a deal this is) Thank you, Alabama Surgical Associates and Dr. Doucette for this tool to help me become the best version of myself! I am currently down 97 pounds, but I am not done yet!
