Ginger’s Weight Loss Journey

Surgery: Vertical Sleeve Gastrectomy
Date of Surgery: August 14, 2012
Weight Loss Since Surgery: 79 pounds

Ginger’s “Ah-ha” moment took place when she was on family vacation about three years ago. Realizing her limitations and discomforts upon visiting a theme park with her children, she knew it was time for a change. After struggling with obesity for years and trying just about everything on the market, she was excited to learn that the vertical sleeve gastrectomy was an option. Ginger says,”From the beginning of my journey, my weight loss team has always been in my corner. Having this procedure was the best decision I ever made. I would do it all over again. The end results were worth it!”
