Learn how surgical weight loss has helped this mom get back to living the life she loves
Misty Morgan was overweight as a child. She always considered herself to be a “normal overweight,” until she started getting bigger and bigger. Suddenly, Misty was so overweight, she could no longer do the activities she loved.
Although she tried losing weight on her own, Misty always ended up gaining it back. Because she wanted to be the best parent she could be for her growing children, Misty turned to surgical weight loss at Mercy Health.
“I felt at this point that this was way bigger than me, that I could not do this alone,” Misty said. “And that’s when I scheduled the seminar and I came here for help.”
After meeting with a dietician, doctor and psychologist, Misty had a diet and fitness plan in-hand. Misty followed that plan for the next six months, until she was able to have surgery.
“The staff here at Mercy Health is amazing,” Misty said. “If I have a question, I can email them, I can call them, I can stop in at any time…honestly, I have never had a staff that is willing to help that much.”
And the results? Even better.
Misty has lost more than 200 pounds since her gastric bypass surgery, and she’s lost count of the inches shed. Just as important as what she’s lost, Misty has gained what feels like a whole new life. She’s back to work, often gets together with friends, and has been able to do activities such as ride rollercoasters and in airplanes.
“Best of all, I am part of a huge support group with other weight loss surgery patients who have been through the same thing,” Misty said. “My life is 100 percent different. I have never been this happy.”
