Pen Argyl • Down 140 pounds
Laparoscopic Gastric Bypass

Like many people, I’ve struggled with my weight since I was fairly young. I tried every diet in the book, losing and then regaining, losing and then regaining. At 271 pounds, everyday tasks were a struggle and I was in constant pain or discomfort. My son would want to play outside, but I couldn’t keep up. A friend recommended St. Luke’s weight loss program and after attending an info seminar and meeting the team, I knew it was right for me. Old habits are hard to break, but the tools and support at St. Luke’s help make me stronger every day. Now, when we jog outside together, my son can’t keep up with me!
