My Ah-ha moment was when I could not ride the rollercoaster because I was too fat.*

Holly's Ah-ha moment happened in 2004 when she went to ride the rollercoaster at a local theme park. When the safety bar on the rollercoaster wouldn't close due to Holly's size, she had to get off the ride. At a weight of over 300 pounds, Holly chose the LAP-BAND procedure and lost 120 pounds. Weight loss surgery at Bayfront Health Dade City was one of the best decisions of her life. Today she is able to play with her children, ride her motorcycle, walk for hours without becoming exhausted and enjoy the thrill of rollercoaster rides!
