My name is Brandi McWhirter. I’m 31 years old. When I was 18, I was diagnosed with high blood pressure and insulin resistance. Doctors told me that losing the extra weight would help me out tremendously but that was easier said than done.
On April 26, 2016 I had Gastric Bypass surgery. When I started my weight loss journey I weighed 241 pounds. I’ve lost 66 pounds and now I’m at 175 pounds. I feel so much better and I don’t have to take any medication anymore for my blood pressure or insulin. This was by far the best decision I ever made!
