Erin Hansen was tired of watching her daughter Kylie play and not being able to play with her. Now thanks to her Roux-en-Y gastric bypass, her four-year-old daughter might have trouble catching up with her.
“I’m a new person,” Hansen said. “My daughter sees it in my actions. I'm right there dancing and running. I can actually catch her now when we play tag.”
Hansen has lost 135 pounds. Never an athletic person before, for fear that people would laugh at her, Hansen has since run four 5Ks and she coached her daughter’s soccer team this season.
“Why not? These are things I never would have done before,” Hansen said. “I would recommend it to anybody. It has completely changed my life.”
