“I’m a food addict, and my addiction was killing me. I knew
I had to do something about it, but nothing worked. I’d always been
heavy; I weighed 160 pounds in first grade, and before my surgery, I was
taking 22 pills a day for every health issue imaginable."
"Having weight reduction surgery at Catawba Valley Medical Center
changed my life. I went from 308 pounds to 145, and I have more self-confidence.
One of the hardest things to realize is that it’s not a cure-all;
it’s a tool to help you conquer your weight and health issues. It’s
a way of life, and it’s worth it if you do it for the right reasons.”
