After high school and for the […]

Things worth obtaining are not necessarily easy. Every day I give thanks for the life-changing and health-providing surgery I had 15 years ago. Never did I imagine that life would look like this.

Celebrating Skotti’s Before & After Gastric Bypass Journey! I was always a “big boned” boy growing up. Yes, not fat, big boned. At least people meant well when they said that to me. One thing that I realized from an early age in elementary school is that I was bigger than other kids but didn’t […]
