Before & After Weight-Loss

Scott Butler

After a great deal of research to be sure he understood the journey ahead, Scott Butler made the decision to have weight-loss surgery. He also completely changed his lifestyle to add exercise and good nutrition. As a result, he lost over 300 pounds and got his life back. 

Cheryl & Steve Irvin

Cheryl and her husband Steve both chose weight-loss surgery to get back to better health. As they were preparing for retirement, they didn’t want their excess weight slowing them down.

Dave van Buren

When preparing for heart surgery, Dave was shocked his weight had gotten out of control. He took control of his life after weight-loss surgery and is back doing the things he loves.

Sarah Deming

Sarah didn’t realize how much she had given up due to her weight. After weight-loss surgery, she doesn’t have to sacrifice the joy of everyday activities — she is enjoying life again.

Kari Hackett

Kari realized getting on the floor to play with her niece was too difficult. She did not want to miss out on the future, so she chose weight-loss surgery.
