Have you been struggling with your weight for sometime now and feel as if you have ran out of options?  Are you contemplating Bariatric Surgery but you are unsure of what to expect.  Listens to this interview and learn from the experience of this wife, mother of 3, Registered Nurse, certified Hip Hop Hustle instructor, author, and bariatric surgery patient, Robanne Robin.

Robanne has battled eating disorders all of her life including childhood obesity, anorexia, bulimia, and morbid obesity as an adult. At age 37 Robanne was facing major health issues including high blood pressure and diabetes. After two trips to the ER with a pulse over 200 she knew she had to make some serious lifestyle changes, or risk continued health problems. On August 4, 2009, Robanne had lap-roux-en-Y gastric bypass surgery and has since lost half of her body weight. She has gone from weighing 300 pounds to 150. After almost giving up on herself, Robanne sought medical help that has saved her life.

Through seeking help and putting in the hard work to make major lifestyle changes, she has turned a lifelong struggle with weight and eating disorders into a platform to motivate and inspire others. She now lives an active lifestyle and has launched books and inspirational projects. Robanne works with bariatric patients to motivate them to be successful.
