Neat article that was on our local news here in Dallas last night .. The couple had their surgery ("gastric bypass", but doesn't specifically state which type of WLS) two years ago, and are both doing GREAT (she looks almost skinny now ) .. Very proud of them, and they have a much brighter future now spending time with their young kids, as the video sweetly shows ..

Here's a bit lengthier article about the family (from Shine Magazine, link is in the original news video article):

A couple of takeaways to note .. one, notice mention made of how important the "strict diet" is to successful post-op weight loss .. Keep in mind WLS is not a "ticket to ride" to major weight loss, it's rather more like a "passport" that will allow you to get to that destination if you do things properly after your surgery .. Something else I noticed from the video is that none of their three young sons are showing signs of being overweight, fortunately .. Hopefully it will stay that way and the "fat genes" will not creep into the scene later on ...
