Rose weighed nearly 500 pounds when she decided to have Bariatric Surgery-a decision she calls, "the best decision I ever made. I had not driven a car since 1995 and now I have the freedom to go anywhere I want." Rose went from a size 60 dress to a size 24. She now weighs 260 pounds and is still losing. When you meet Rose, it will be easy for you to see she's enjoying life again.
