Kim M. - My Story

Gastric Bypass  |  2007

My Life Before Bariatric Surgery

I struggled with weight issues all of my life.  Up and down, up and down seemed to be the way I would live forever.  As I got older and quit smoking I gained and gained.  I craved junk food all of the time.  I began to isolate myself from the rest of the world.  My asthma and lack of mobility keep me from doing a lot of activities. 

Making the Decision

A friend of mine had gone through bariatric surgery.  I was inspired by her success.  As I researched the options, I happened to be on the phone with a customer and friend of mine and realized that she worked as a nutritionist for Barix.  It was great to discuss the surgery with her ahead of time.  I chose the laparoscopic gastric bypass and it is the best decision that I have ever made. 

How My Life Has Changed

Everything has changed.  I no longer crave junk food.  I find it very easy to be me and lose weight at the same time.  I feel more attractive (BIG TIME).  I no longer feel isolated.  I run around with my teenager.  I am free from the prision of morbid obesity. 

Thanks to the Barix Clinics, I have probably added 20 quality years to my life and I am free.
