Meet Carla

“I learned it’s not my fault that I’m overweight, it’s my fault if I STAY overweight,” says Carla.

Carla wanted a life, something different. She said that when she was heavier, she always knew what her plans were—to stay in front of the TV at home.

Now? She is always moving. She wanted to be healthier, but she gained even more than she realized she would. She gained health, love, family—she gained a life. And she’s getting married.

Carla tells us about her decision to lose weight and gain a healthy life. She talks about IU Health Bariatric & Medical Weight Loss, the programs offered and the staff. She also talks about the discipline and hard work it takes to find success.

Watch her inspiring story to find out why she says the best decision she ever made was going to IU Health Bariatric & Medical Weight Loss, and how her life was changed that day forward. You may even catch a glimpse of her in that beautiful wedding dress.
