A simple trip to the grocery store would wear me out. After I got back home my knees would hurt so badly that I would have to lie down. But the real kicker was the day I had to carry around my nine-month old granddaughter and I was not able to do it. That’s when I found Anchorage Bariatrics and began the New Directions diet plan. Being successful feels so good! I’m doing things I haven’t done in over a decade and I feel 30 years younger!
