A Success Story from Debra Green

One surgery changed her life. Debra Green from Pennellville, NY shares her success story:

debra-green-success-storyIn 2006, I decided to have gastric bypass surgery after many attempts at losing weight over the years. I weighed 330 pounds and was a size 5X the day of the surgery. The combination of counseling and surgery was enough to get me past that first 100 pounds of weight loss. I have been working on the rest with exercise and healthy eating. I started running in 2009, with just “mailbox-to-mailbox” distances.

And yet, I completed my first marathon in 2010 and have since finished many races to include five marathons and eight half marathons!

I am proud to say I am half the person I used to be, weighing in now at 165 pounds and a very comfortable size 8. I am now a fitness instructor for the YMCA here in Syracuse, NY. For years, I watched my life pass me by, being very limited with my obesity. I was a spectator of my own journey. Now, I am an active participant of life and I can’t wait to see where the journey takes me!

Thanks, Core Greens, Grains & Bone Broth for having such healthy options at an affordable price! I thank you for allowing me to share my story!
