Darcy Bockman-Wright's Success Story

Darcy Bockman-Wright
Darcy's StoryAt 37 years old, Darcy didn’t feel confident shopping for clothes and suffered from extreme pain in her achy joints. Weighing in at 345 lbs, she was a pre-diabetic, experiencing low energy, high cholesterol, high blood pressure and trouble sleeping.

After spending time with unsuccessful weight loss and work out regimens, Darcy decided surgery was the necessary next step in order to gain her life back. In September 2012, Darcy had the Gastric Bypass surgery and hasn’t looked back since, “The Franciscan Center for Weight Management staff and Dr. Houseworth are my earth-bound angels. They gave me my life back and provided opportunity.”

Shedding more than 163 lbs in just 9 months is an inspiration to anyone. “I made this decision for myself, in order to make a change for the rest of my life.”

Now Darcy enjoys bike riding with her family, traveling, playing baseball, getting more involved in her children’s sports and watching her new body transform from month to month!
