I had been fighting obesity for several years before seeking help for it. My 3 boys would get picked on at school because of me and I could not let that happen. I knew I had to do something, if not for me then for them. Dr. Marvin and his whole crew helped me change my life from the moment I walked into their office. I had surgery September 24, 2009 and that’s the day my new life began. I have lost 137 pounds! I started playing sports, chasing after the boys, and just doing normal things without being tired after. This surgery was the best decision I have ever made in my life. My family and I want to say Thank You for everything.
