Kellee's Story

Lost 152 pounds
Before: 414 pounds; Now: 262 pounds and still losing

Being overweight has always been a lifelong battle for me. I tried many different diets and weight loss programs, only to lose a few pounds then gain back even more. I couldn’t walk up a few stairs without being completely out of breath. Shopping for clothes was always a dreadful experience in which I always found myself crying because I couldn’t find anything that fit. It’s easy to say that I was absolutely miserable and trapped inside my own body. My weight was holding me back from living my life, and I knew I needed to do something about it.

In May of 2013 I attended Covenant’s bariatric seminar and with the help of Dr. Ringley, the bariatric team, and my wonderful family, I decided to have the Sleeve Gastrectomy. I had my surgery on September 23rd, 2013 and from that moment on my life changed.

Since surgery I have lost 152 pounds and I’ve never felt better. Now I choose to take the stairs instead of the elevator and I enjoy shopping for clothes. Kickboxing, sculpt, and cardio are also a part of my daily life and I love it. I never thought I could enjoy working out and now I’m hooked. If I had to do the surgery over again, I would do it in a heartbeat. It has honestly saved my life.
