I am a mother of 5 who hated looking in the mirror. Before I had kids, I was only 140. After having my 5th baby, I was at my heaviest of 290lbs. I am only 5’2,” and I hated myself for letting me get that big. The day I decided to make this decision, it wasn’t easy because my husband wasn’t on board. Three weeks before my actual surgery date, I got the call saying an appointment opened up, but it was only seven days away, and I would have to start my liquid diet the next day. I had my surgery on 12/23/20, and on the day of surgery, I was 278lbs, size 18. Today I am healthy and happy, and I love being 135 and in size 7! Thank you so much TLC surgery and Dr. Scarborough. I recommend it to everyone who asks, and I am glad I made this life-changing decision.
