My name is Brandon Northcutt – I Lost 160 lbs
“I have always had weight issues. I’ve been a high school football coach for 18 years so I was never inactive. Health wise, I didn’t have issues until I was 30 and then it was downhill. In the course of 3 years I was diagnosed with high blood pressure, fluid retention, tendonitis in my feet, arthritis in my knees, and sleep apnea.
“As I said I was active, so all my problems were mostly genetic. No diet or exercise plan worked. At this point, I stated researching the next option. I read about gastric bypass, lap-band and the doctors in the area. After praying and meeting with Dr. Mathews I knew he was the doctor for me. This man has given me the tool to change my life. By doing all I was asked to do (what to eat, how to eat, taking vitamins and exercise) I have lost almost 160 lbs.
“My weight loss has allowed me to enjoy a totally new lifestyle. I can shop in regular clothing stores. I’m not embarrassed by my size anymore. I can go to amusement parks and “fit” in the rides with my kids. I’m comfortable in any confined area (auditoriums and theaters). I haven’t taken any medications or used my C-Pap machine since the day before my surgery. The most meaningful changes in my life were when my daughter hugged me and said, ‘Dad I can reach all the way around you now!’ And I can rock my son and we fit in the same chair. I love my new lifestyle and so does my family. Thank you Dr. Mathews.”
