This has been one of the most amazing journeys of my life. I have spent the better part of two decades trying to get my weight under control. I tried everything I could think of. I had looked at weight loss surgery but at the time my insurance and my circumstances didn’t allow it. My weight got up as high as 425 lbs. and that was a breaking point.
Since my surgery I can’t begin to describe the number of times I have had a NSV (non-scale victory). This past summer I went to the backwoods of Yellowstone with my scout troop and hiked 40+ miles, went rappelling, and for the first time in my life, I tried a kayak without fear of tipping over! It was amazing!
I can’t begin to describe the amount of positives that have taken place in my life! But, by far, the best is seeing the look and the tears in my 17 year old daughter’s eyes when she came up and hugged me and for the first time in her life she was able to get her arms all the way around me! Talk about hitting you right in the feels!
Thank you for this new lease on life. My wife even recently had the same surgery with Dr. Steven Simper and we are starting to live the life that we feel we were meant to have a long time ago.
Thank you Rocky Mountain Associated Physicians (RMAP) and thank you Dr. Simper!
