Weight Loss Surgery Success Stories



Heidi has always been an outdoor girl. She loves to go camping, fishing, hiking and kayaking with her husband and two girls, ages 17 and 20. However, it became impossible to keep up. "I wanted their energy!" Heidi said. As a former smoker, she remembers the feeling of being unhealthy. Unfortunately after giving up one bad habit, she formed another.

Struggling with weight issues prior to quitting smoking, she gained a quick 60 pounds. With her families support, she attended a seminar with the bariatric surgeons at St. Vincent's Medical Center's Bariatric Surgery Center of Excellence in Bridgeport.

Listening to all the facts, pros and cons; she left and felt as if obesity surgery was the right choice. After 113 pounds of bariatric weight loss, she is loving life as a healthy active THIN adult! She now exercises, eats right and sticks with it day in and day out. "This life change was mine to make and it was all about my health."
