My name is Christina Hernandez and I wanted to update you on my success with the gastric bypass surgery. I had it done on Sept 23, 2008, and as of today I weigh 136 lbs. So that is a total weight loss of 136 lbs. I want to thank you for all the support that you gave me. I feel truly amazing and I'm so thankful for the chance to have this done. I tried so hard for over 10 years to lose all the weight that I had put on. No matter how hard I tried or what I did, it didn’t seem to help. I think my moment came when I was doing a physical test to become a prison guard and I failed that part. I was crushed because I was so overweight I could not do it. Now I can go and run with my kids or jump on the trampoline or whatever they want. I went from 272 to 136lbs. I feel amazing, I no longer have any back problems and my knees no longer bother me. I’m not out of breath walking from the parking lot to the store. I’m no longer saying, “Hey wait for me.” Thank you so much.
