"I'm Not Going to Sit Out This Dance"

In college I loved to dance – I even taught dance classes. Well, fast-forward to age 47. I was less than 5 feet tall and weighed 200 lbs. Dancing was out of the question – I could barely make it through a day at work, on the air at the radio station. Standing that long was painful and exhausting. I had tried every kind of diet known to man, but nothing worked. I was miserable, and I was losing hope.

The happiest day of my life was in October 2010, when I was approved for gastric-bypass surgery with Dr. Lord. His staff helped me every step of the way – from working with my insurance to preparing me for surgery and what to expect afterwards.

Weight-loss surgery is the best thing I have ever done for myself, period. One year after the surgery, I've lost 102 lbs., and the aches and pains are gone, too. I feel hopeful about my life again. In fact, I feel like dancing!
