I was killing myself with food. After surgery I am a whole new person.

Michelle's Story

Total Lost: 210 pounds*

I act, walk and talk differently. I am finally feeling the way I was meant to feel. I have participated in 5k, 10k, half marathons and did the whole 26.2 LA marathon. I am able to walk, dance, work and etc without needing to sit down every few minutes.

This surgery and the support from Dr. Dutson and the staff allowed/helped me to be successful. Weight loss surgery is not a diet it is a whole new life! I embrace every single day with a new blessed attitude.

As I am truly blessed! I am not perfect but perfectly me! Thank you Dr.Dutson!!
