Hattie describes how her life has been transformed by gastric bypass surgery.

I have more confidence. I can shop different now. I get a lot of compliments now. People call me skinny – something that I hadn’t heard in maybe 30 years or so.

The old Hattie is totally gone away; I am more physically fit now. I exercise at least four to five days a week. I have ran my first 5K and completed it. I can out-walk my kids now.

Before I had maybe a couple of stores that I can shop at and the prices were really, they were really expensive where now I have more options available. I can walk right in and just get something off of a regular rack. It’s cheaper, less expensive; styles are a lot better.
