Bianca Castro Weight Loss
On February 17, 2022, Bianca shared a story of an Arlington couple who lost almost 250 pounds. Kelli and Jason Taylor shared their story hoping to inspire others who are struggling with weight loss resolution.
“We got to a point where even just waking up in the morning and getting out of bed was painful for us,” said Kelli Taylor.
“When you’re really overweight, small, simple things are really, really difficult and leave you exhausted,” she added.
The couple decided to undergo a life-changing transformation that started with a decision Jason made the day he was teaching his oldest son how to ride a bike.
“It was when we got Connor the bicycle first and he had training wheels. I thought about it and I was like, ‘you know, eventually, he’ll want those training wheels off and there’s running that comes with that.’ That was just kind of my focus from then on,” Jason said.
With Kelli on board, the two underwent gastric bypass surgery three months apart at Methodist Mansfield.
After recovery, they started the strict diet required to make weight loss surgery successful but the key for them was doing it together.
