WE'RE SO GLAD YOU'RE HERE
I'm Cortni - and I'm a chaos tornado of love who sings her way through life and can't resist a good book.
I had my SADI-S (Single Anastomosis Duodenal-Ileal bypass with Sleeve) surgery on February 15, 2022. My highest weight just months before was 411 lbs. I was barely able to walk, out of shape, I hadn't been to a regular doctor in years, and I was truly scared about the longevity (and quality) of my life.
When my best friend Allyson shared that she needed weight loss surgery to be on a heart transplant list, I knew instantly that I could both support her and take a pivotal step in my personal health. Six months later, and we were both sharing our post-op stories with our viewers.
I'm a cat mom, married to my sweet husband, Rob, and loving life in the taco-city of Central TX! I love to travel, make a mean picture wall, and have an uncanny ability to find four-leaf clovers!
I'm Allyson - a person who loves bright crazy patterns, a challenging escape room and laughing way too loud.
I had my Gastric Sleeve (VSG) surgery on February 24, 2022. I scheduled surgery after a follow up cardiology appointment where I was told I was in Stage C Heart Failure. My doctors shared that not only would weight loss surgery would allow me to be eligible for a transplant, it would potentially delay the need for that surgery by years.
After a number of surgeries over the past decade, this journey has been one that has been surprisingly emotional and I am so thankful for the support of my immediate and greater community.
I love to paint, make, cook, and exercise my creativity in all ways, and have two large dogs that I love to go on walks with. You can catch me enjoying culture through museums, shows, and more, and I am always down for a good sports game!
