Amie Williams

Surgery Date: October 2017
Starting Weight: 346 lbs.
Current Weight: 241 lbs>

Amie’s excess weight was causing her to hide in the crowd. Now she is so much happier and exuding confidence!
She says: “I have a better self-image of myself!”

What made you decide to have a vertical sleeve gastrectomy? My dad died at 41 from a heart attack. As I got closer to that age, I didn’t want to become a statistic. I wanted to become a good role model for my daughters.

Since your vertical sleeve gastrectomy, besides the external changes, how has surgery altered your outlook on life? I’m much happier, and I smile a lot more!

Has it changed your relationships with family, friends, or co-workers? I have stronger relationships with my mother and spouse. I’m also more active with my daughters, who are 6 and 9 years old.

What other things have changed as a result of the surgery? I have a better self image of myself.  I don’t hide in the crowd anymore because I have more confidence.

What do you wish you’d known before the surgery? How much better I would feel physically and mentally and the increase in my energy level.

What would you tell someone who is considering vertical sleeve gastrectomy? DO IT!!!

Where is your journey taking you? I ran my first 5K a few weeks ago, and I’m training now for a 10K.

Any additional information you would like to share? Don’t wait! Don’t let people talk you out of it. DO IT FOR YOURSELF!
