Please join us as we speak with Donna, Christi, Dave & Lauren – and hear about their own very different journeys to having weight loss surgery – & their lives now. Donna started gaining her weight as she struggled with trying to quit smoking & at the age of 66 with serious health crises had weight loss surgery. She is now fit & has stopped smoking, “feels like I’m 35!!!” and is able to help others in her life. Christi is a mom of 3 boys and struggled with weight issues her entire life. Years ago she got a lap band, and has never looked back. She has now also has a tummy tuck – and at the age of 38 – feels she has the body she never had. And there is Dave, who was heavy his entire life he can remember, was 360 pounds in college waited many years to have surgery, and says its the best thing he ever did. Certainly the best thing for his sex life! There is also a secret about Dave in the show – but you have to listen to learn! And then there is our country & western superstar sweetheart Lauren – who had her surgery at the age of 14! She struggled with her weight since she was 5, and her weight was affecting her so badly she didn’t want to go on stage and perform any more. Well after dropping 70 pounds, adopting superb lifestyle habits she is singing her heart out to thousands. And yes, Lauren treats us to a few bars from “You’re Still the One” from my favorite country superstar – Shania Twain! So inspiring to see how these people have changed their lives in so man ways – and they have all adopted fantastic, admirable new lifestyle habits. Their sense of accomplishment is a joy to share in.
