For many people who struggle with obesity, dieting and exercise alone are not enough to lose and maintain substantial weight loss to improve their health.

For some, bariatric surgery, in addition to lifestyle changes, may be the holistic approach to achieving and maintaining great health.

About 800 central Illinoisans have undergone bariatric surgery through Memorial Medical Center’s Bariatric Services program, all with the intended goal

 of living a more fulfilling, active life after shedding the weight.

One such success story is Jill, who has lost more than 118 pounds since her surgery a year ago.

“I finally realized it was time for me to take care of myself in order to be around to take care of the ones that I love,” she saidSince her surgery, Jill has become a runner and is happier than ever.

Read her story in her own words below.
