If there was one thing Catherine Leick wished she could do, it was join her young niece and nephew on the playground. But until very recently, her weight kept her from doing that – and many other activities.

“I’ve dealt with stress and worry by eating since I was a child, and I’ve struggled with my weight as long as I can remember,” says Catherine. “As I got older, the weight piled on until, at age 27, I hit 354 pounds.”

Today Catherine has lost 168 pounds!

Rhonda's Story

Lost 150 Pounds

Before bariatric surgery, Rhonda weighed nearly 400 pounds and was unable to complete simple daily tasks such as tying her shoe. Today, the opportunities are endless for Rhonda. Now she's lacing up her shoes, taking the stairs and even biking. Something she never dreamed of before surgery.

"It's your life and it's your health," says Rhonda. "It was a commitment I had to make personally and mentally."

Brenda's Story

Lost 132 Pounds

When doctors told Brenda that if she didn't take control of her weight, she might no longer be around – that was the turning point. Her liver was no longer functioning properly and it was time to make a change.

Her doctor recommended Bryan Bariatric Advantage where she met the close-knit team that continues to support her in staying committed to a healthier lifestyle.

"The amount of things I am now able to do is innumerable, compared to before," said Brenda. "People also comment on how much happier I am and how much more confidence I have."
