success story. She had weight loss surgery in 2000 and has maintained a 125-pound loss for the past 10 years and she's dedicated her life to educating other patients about bariatric surgery and how to live a healthy life afterward. She's an author (WLS: Finding the Thin Person Hiding Inside You) and a researcher and is an advocate for bariatric surgery across the country. And personally, she's an inspiration to me.
Her website - http://www.wlscenter.com/ - provides a wealth of information, recipes, articles and success stories of fellow WLS patients. She's a co-author for the WLS Bible we all own and read often - Weight Loss Surgery for Dummies. Take the time to look around her website, there is some amazing information there - "To All Significant Others" -- "Daily Motivation" -- "Research Articles" and more. She also publishes a monthly newsletter that lands in my email inbox each month - it's always packed with valuable information! If you don't already subscribe, you can sign up at her website here.
My story is featured in the April 2010 Newsletter. I hope you'll take the time to check it out.
I'm honored to be a part of the April newsletter. Thank you, Barbara, for the opportunity.
