Jesse’s Story

How I came to my decision: After many attempts to lose weight on my own only to lose a few pounds and gain it back I wanted to take a more long term approach to getting the weight off. I battled with my weight most of my life. In my mid 20’s I had to go on blood pressure medication and start sleeping with a CPAP machine. By the time I was 30 I was up to 275 and my weight was starting to get out of control. By the time I had my surgery I was 310lbs and feeling run down, my knees hurt, my hip hurt, always out of breath. I had it in my head I would not see 55-60 years old if I kept gaining. That’s when I finally made my decision to check into gastric sleeve. I have an 11 year old daughter and twin 2 years old boy’s that need their dad.

How my life has changed: So my journey is still not finished however, I feel amazing now that I’m 70 lbs. down in less than 3 months! I have so much energy, no aches and pains. I’m able to do more things around the house, spend time with my kids, and even get some fishing in. This surgery has changed my life for the good!
