Veronica's Weight Loss Transformation
Struggling with her weight since childhood, Veronica felt trapped in a downward spiral. She had developed low self-esteem.
As she got older, Veronica had trouble walking and noticed her metabolism slowing down more than ever before. Her personal struggle with weight and a family history of obesity made her realize it was time to make a change.
Weighing 270 pounds, Veronica decided to have lap-band surgery at Magee-Womens Hospital of UPMC. Since her surgery, she's lost more than half of her body weight.
She now has the confidence to love and believe in herself again. Adopting a healthy lifestyle has given her the energy to keep up with her kids and be the best mom she can be.
