PATIENT STORIES

Michael Lewis

Over 200 lbs lost!

“I have had a 10-year battle trying to lose weight and at one point was probably close to 500lbs, the highest recorded weight I have is 452 because that was as high as my scale would go. When I started with Roller Weight Loss, I was over 400lbs and now two years after RNY bypass I am down to 225lbs and currently competing in CrossFit. Dr. Roller and staff at Roller Weight Loss helped me save my life and give the quality of life I strive for. I am now able to do what my family needs me to do and I am able play with my daughter! This has given me a passion for fitness and helping others which I have turned into my career running a gym, as well as, being a certified personal trainer. My family and I cannot thank Dr. Roller and his team enough!”

Hannah Hunter

Over 200 lbs lost!

“My overall lifestyle was not healthy at all and I had many medical issues that no one really could give me answers for. I felt under the weather and lethargic a lot of the time. I even stopped really looking at myself in the mirror, let alone have a picture taken. One day I went to have a physical and my primary doctor let me know that I was sitting around 330 lbs. I couldn’t believe it; I kept asking myself how long have I been ignoring the fact that mentally and physically I was unwell? I was referred to Dr. Roller and I remember still feeling like there was no light at the end of the tunnel. That feeling of anxiety and fear was alleviated once I walked through Dr. Roller’s office door. On December 31, 2018, I went into surgery excited to start off the new year with a new mindset and of course a new lifestyle. Today, I currently weigh 128 lbs. and it has changed my life forever. Not only do I feel better about myself mentally but physically as well! I am now extremely active, resuming old sports I use to enjoy like golf and tennis. I don’t feel the shame I used to feel when I would see pictures of myself. I have regained a significant amount of confidence back, something that hasn’t been seen for over a decade now. Thank you, Dr. Roller and staff for everything you have done. I know my journey, like many others, hasn’t been the easiest but I am grateful that you all gave me the tools to succeed…it was just up to me to use them.”

Brianna Jones

Over 110 lbs lost!

“After being over weight my entire life I hit my all time low. At the young age of 21, I was 246 pounds, having heart issues, extremely depressed and truly scared for my life. I honestly didn’t think there was a way out of my situation. July of 2018 I had a family member recommend seeing Dr. Roller. I am so happy that I made the decision to set some time aside just to see what my options were. Little did I know that one appointment would forever change my life. Two short months later I was being wheeled back for surgery. Here I am now almost three years out and currently sitting at 130 pounds. I am loving myself more than ever, loving the gym, and most importantly loving life instead of dreading each day. I have never been so confident in myself. Dr. Roller gave me a tool that ultimately saved my life. I am forever thankful for him and his entire team for being so knowledgeable, kind and patient. They were beyond dedicated in helping me make the changes that I couldn’t do on my own. I am blessed to forever be apart of Team Roller!”

Lisa Fancher

190 lbs lost!

“It would take too much time to describe how much my life has changed since my weight loss surgery. I am able to enjoy life so much more. From the little non-scale victories like sitting in seats comfortably or crossing my legs, to big things such as running my first 5K and dancing at my niece’s wedding in Mexico. There have been trips, Razorback games, Jeep rides, concerts, rodeos, waterfalls, geocaching finds, camping trips, horse races, live theater performances, Silver Dollar City visits and dance lessons. I now volunteer for charities close to my heart, spend more time doing activities with my husband and daughters, as well as hosting friends and family in our home. These are all examples of things I would have missed out on during the last year had I continued at my previous weight.”

Erin Rice

Over 100 lbs lost!

“I remember as a child worrying about my weight, and I worried up until the day I had my weight loss surgery. Being a child and worrying about weight was a terrible feeling, but what’s worse was stressing about it through adulthood when all the negative health effects started taking a toll on me. At the age of 27, I decided I was not going to go down the path of diabetes, high cholesterol, high blood pressure and fluid retention. I had a physical at work and all the things I mentioned above were borderline. That is when I knew I had to make a change. After all the failed attempts at diets, I knew surgery was my path to live a healthy, happy life. My surgery was Dec. 29, 2014, and that is when I was set free.”

Shelley Dougan

122 lbs lost!

“After a cycle of losing weight and gaining it right back, I decided to see what Dr. Roller could do for me. After visiting with him, he thought I would be a great candidate for surgery. I’m 34 and weighed 243 pounds. I had surgery March 15, 2015, and now I have lost 122 pounds and currently weigh 121 pounds. I have never felt better and am so thankful to Dr. Roller for all the new opportunities I have now that I feel so much better. I’m on the go all the time, and my children love having an active, healthy mom now.”

Ronnie Robertson

160 lbs lost!

“I would lose weight only to gain it back, plus some. The things I loved to do including sports, especially golf, were slowly slipping away from me. I was 373 at my heaviest. I had surgery Dec 9, 2015, and today I weigh 203! I am more active at age 53 than I was at 43 or even 33. The dark cloud that was constantly over me is gone. The weight loss transformed me both physically and mentally.”

Bobby Blackburn

230 lbs lost!

“Dr. Roller, I can’t tell you how much you’ve changed my life. I’m sure you hear it all the time…thank you for literally saving my life!”

Kelly Pohl

130 lbs lost!

Kelly suffered from thyroid and insulin issues and gained 120 pounds in two years. Kelly and her husband tried to have a child for 12 years, but they were unsuccessful because of her weight. At age 34 she was diagnosed with Hashimoto’s Disease and decided to have gastric bypass surgery. Over the course of a year, she lost 135 pounds. In 2012 after 15 years of marriage she found out that she was pregnant and gave birth to a healthy, happy, baby girl named Kacie.

“I will be forever grateful to Dr. Roller and the Roller Weight Loss team for their care, compassion, guidance, and encouragement.”
