Jen had been an overweight person all of her life. But when her father died of a massive heart attack at an all-too-young age, she made a promise to honor his life by saving her own.

“I wanted to make a change, but at that point in my life, I needed a tool to help me achieve that,” explains Jen.

Jen began to investigate bariatric surgery and attended a seminar at Healthy Weight Management & Bariatric Surgery.


After surgery and a commitment to make healthy lifestyle choices, Jen has new excitement for about the future.

“Almost every day I am reminded in some way just how much my life has improved. I continue to be motivated and determined to see just how much sweeter it can become,” says Jen.
