Surgery Date


Weight Lost After 2 Years:

240 pounds

I met Dr. Rao at one of the hardest times in my life. I had gotten to a record 460 pounds, could not exercise much, was depressed and most importantly, I was watching my kids grow up without an active father. After deciding to get the gastric sleeve, I committed myself not only to surgery, but to a life change.

It has been almost two years since my surgery. I have lost 240 pounds and am in the best shape of my life! With encouragement from my friends across the country with Trinity Fitness, my amazing family, and a renewed energy, I am in better shape going on 45 years old than I was at 25!

In 2016, I completed several 5K races, a 10K, the Gate 15K, a half-marathon and a Spartan Super (an 8-mile, obstacle-course run). There is no possible way that I could have done this without Dr. Rao!

A quote from one of the most inspirational groups on the face of this planet says this: “Doubt whispers to the warrior: ‘You can’t handle the storm.’ The warrior replies: ‘I am the storm!’”

You can do this. You can take control. You CAN achieve your dreams!
