Life has changed for Scott Zimmerman. He has a new attitude and outlook on life. He feels 20 years younger now that he is 70 pounds lighter and no longer needs treatment for diabetes, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, and sleep apnea.
How did this husband, father of two teens and HVAC specialist at AAMC do it?
Last April, he had weight loss surgery. “The moment of truth came when I thought I wouldn’t wake up to see my kids,” says Scott, who knew his health was going in the wrong direction.
“This wasn’t so much about weight loss as it was about health gain and getting back my energy. Now I want to do things and not just sit around the house,” he says. “I’m enjoying life again.”
