Dr. Johnson was wonderful. I will admit that I had a few concerns about the fact that he looks like he is about 18 but I couldn't have asked for a better doctor! He has a wonderful personality and seems to really care about you! I would highly recommend him to anyone!

I was always a sturdy kid, maybe not overweight but I was never one of those little spindly kids. When I was in about the 6th grade I was overweight. I have struggled ever since then. My highest weight as a teenager was about 180 lbs. The only way I ever lost weight was to starve myself. When I was about 18 I got to my lowest weight of 130 lbs but only kept it off for a year or two. When I got married I weighed 189 lbs and I gained steadily from there. I lost weight during my pregnancies (how weird is that?) but always managed to put the weight I lost plus some back on after each of my 3 children. After having my daughter in 2001 I began thinking about having Gastric Bypass surgery but never could get up the nerve to really do anything more than pray about it and research. My youngest (and last) child was born in 2005 and in 2006 I started seeing a doctor to help me with weight loss. I took phentermein and lost about 30-40 lbs I was down to 228 lbs at my lowest. As soon as I went off the phentermein my weight shot right back up to about 260 and I was disgusted with myself. I began thinking about Gastric Bypass again but this time I actually took steps to have it done.
