From Despair to Yoga After Weight Loss Surgery

At age 42, Robert Pruyne was not optimistic about his future. “I didn’t plan on seeing my next birthday,” he admits. “I had anxiety about how my heart would stop, which rendered me nearly non-functional.” In the 4 years since his surgery, Robert has lost more than 110 pounds, down from his peak of around 365. He’s back to regular hiking, spends hours a day in yoga practice, and says he’s in the best shape of his life.

Michaylyn's Bariatric Surgery Success

"Here you're getting all the support upfront; you're getting the nutrition classes, you’re getting a booklet, and you're really well-informed and aware of what you're getting yourself into. And then you have that support continuously. They even have an exercise program if people want to join that as well. It's very nice to know you have everything that you need all in one place.”
