Bariatric Weight Loss Success Stories

Marybeth

Marybeth has always loved to travel. At the moment, included on her bucket list are trips to California and Alaska, and of course to see a Jimmy Buffet Concert! "There are so many more things I want to do now because I feel good again," said Marybeth. Her kids are 20 and 21 years old and couldn't be more proud and excited for their mom.

Before surgery she shied away from other people because she was embarrassed of her weight. She didn't want to have her picture taken and had no desire to get dressed up and go places. She was working and going to school full time. Once she earned her masters' degree, she knew it was time to make a lifestyle change. She visited St. Vincent's and spoke with our weight loss surgeons.

"It was the best thing I ever did for myself," she said. She was borderline diabetic and had sleep apnea. "Now I'm off most of my medications, including my treatment for high blood pressure. I don't even snore anymore!" she said. One hundred pounds of weight vanished after having gastric bypass surgery at St. Vincent's Bariatric Surgery Center of Fairfield County and now she's ready to start exercising. Planning her next trip with her new body and haircut has become her new favorite pastime!
