"My name is Rachel.
"From the time I was young, I have memories of struggling with my weight, as well as family illnesses due to weight issues.
"Throughout my life, I spent years in different sports activities, working out and dieting and, though I enjoyed being active, I never was able to obtain a healthy weight for my body type.
"Over time, a few other medical issues presented themselves and I knew I had to make a huge change if I didn't want the results I had seen with my family. I have children, and I wanted the longest time possible with them; I also wanted to set a healthy example for them."
"After surgery, I had my struggles – anything worth having doesn't come easy. There were adjustments with my diet, and I had to gradually rebuild my workouts, but Dr. Peterson & his staff were there with me, guiding me every step of the way.
I have never had a doctor or their staff that I knew I could fully trust, or who I could call on at any time, day or night. This surgery and Dr. Peterson saved my life and for that I can't be more grateful. I can do more now with my body and am more active than I ever have been. The surgery was a tool to help me obtain a healthier body and life, I am so happy I had it done.
