Smiling All the Way to the Scale: How Gastric Bypass Surgery Saved My Life
When author Jason U. Terry works out at the gym, he feels like a rock star on tour, but that hasn’t always been the case. In 2006, he weighed 416 pounds and felt like a prisoner trapped inside of a body he didn’t recognize in the mirror. Because of his weight, Terry suffered from dire health issues such as diabetes, high blood pressure, and high cholesterol. His doctor wasn’t confident he’d live to celebrate his fortieth birthday. Terry was obese, and it affected every aspect of his being. In Smiling All the Way to the Scale, Terry shares his personal story of how he suffered from depression, lived through some dark days, and then embarked on a journey that literally saved his life. He tells of surviving bariatric (gastric bypass) surgery, being healed by the hand of God, and continuing to follow healthy lifestyle habits. He provides tips and advice for others who feel the pain of being overweight. A story of inspiration, Smiling All the Way to the Scale shows that you, too, can shed unwanted pounds. The battle to lose weight can be won.
