Ryan’s Story*

Nov 2, 2023

Being obese is like being in a cage, trapped inside a body suit of fat that prevents you from doing all the things in life you would like to do. My wife and I came to the conclusion that we couldn’t live like this anymore, so we both signed up for a weight loss seminar with Dr. Nick. I had my surgery in April of 2013. I weighed almost 400lbs. Now, 13 months later, I am 160lbs lighter and I feel wonderful. The surgery has given me back my life.

Since the surgery, I have done many of the things I either couldn’t or wouldn’t have done before. I had stopped traveling by air, too embarrassed that I might need a seat belt extension or purchase an extra seat – but since the surgery, I have flown three times. In the past few months, we have taken our children to visit Hollywood and to experience Disney World. Imagine the satisfaction of being able to ride a roller coaster with your children! I find it is the little things that reward me: not having to worry if I will fit into the restaurant booth, or break the plastic lawn chair. I have started running, and I have never felt better in my life. I really do feel free now: free to live and enjoy my life.
