– Three years ago I weighed 355 pounds, and I went through a series
of weight reduction programs, lost weight, but then would
gain it back and then some. The JFK Bariatric Institute
suggested gastric bypass. I went from 17 medications to two. I weigh as much as I did when
I was in the eighth grade. At Bariatric Institute at
JFK, they treated my obesity as a disease that was curable. I haven’t felt this good, I don’t even remember feeling
this good as a teenager.
