Lonnie Lost 60 Pounds with the Gastric Sleeve

My story is a little different from others. I was fortunate to be born with an athletic body. I have been active my whole life in competitive sports. Turning 50 I even completed a half Ironman Triathalon “without injury.” I was so proud of my accomplishment! Then I began to realize something was wrong, and long story short, I had a parathyroid tumor. Then, hypothyroidism followed…all on top of menopause. I went from a size 8 to a size 18 in one year and within 3 years my once 150 lbs body weighed over 200 lbs. At this time, I made a commitment to start my life over again. I was not going to be one of the statistics. Even though I resigned to not being able to return to being 18 years old and eating whatever I wanted, I was going to fight metabolic disease! The gastric sleeve surgery gave me the jump-start to continue my quest for good health, enjoying exercise, and giving back to others!
