March 23, 2011 will forever be a day that will live in history for the WLSFA. If you could have possibly missed the story you can see the previous posts here.
Toni had a dream…and that was to help people get weight loss surgery when they’ve been denied over and over and over. Connie was denied for ten years and if that was not difficult enough she watched her twin sister thrive after losing 300 pounds when she was approved for weight loss surgery over 6 years ago.
Connie has finally had her day and that’s because of the vision of Toni Namnath. There are so many involved that made this happen. The WLSFA board with all the members, our hospital angel Trudy, Dr. Garth Davis, Dr. Robert Davis and so many more. In a perfect world that is the way it works….many people come together working for a common thread and if everything goes just right, the miracle happens.
The miracle happened….
And if Toni has anything to say about it, she’ll be doing this as many times as she can.
- Connie waved at me as she walked through the door. Just walking this distance with ease would have been impossible for her a few months ago. She joined the gym and got busy and dropped over 60 pounds all by herself before surgery.
- And don’t forget that we will all be celebrating at the Mother of all Meet and Greets and if you look at the AGENDA it will knock your socks off if you are wearing any!
- So look at this picture of Connie but don’t expect to recognize her the next time you see her. Pretty soon we will be saying “is that Connie or is that Rosemary?”
- …and that’s a good thing.

Musician, Artist, Photographer,computer geek and weight loss surgery aficionado. On March 30th, 2001, I had weight loss surgery weighing in at 260 pounds. Since that day I have lost and maintained a 130 pound loss. Yoga and walking my dog were the only exercise I was getting until I started with an instructor and creator of "Body Juggling".
