I have been over weight my whole life. I was always the big girl, the fun girl. The day I went in for surgery I was 305lbs. I was miserable. I had the surgery. Everything went well. I weigh 172 and actually have some size 6 jeans and shorts. I am so glad I had Gastric By Pass. It has changed my life.

At my heaviest, I was 224 pounds on a 5ft frame. Well, just before my 40th, I decided I needed to have the lap-band surgery. Now, I’m proud to say that I’m a BARIATHLETE.JR B.
The thing that impressed me the most about Dr. Johnson is that he never looked at me with condemning eyes. I only experienced genuine concern. Dr. Johnson is more than my surgeon he is my friend. And the ladies at the office are all my sister girls. “I AM A JOHNSON BAND-IT”Tammie B.
