Justin King Weight Loss Success

Justin King of Nettleton has lost 129 pounds since having weight loss surgery at North Mississippi Medical Center in January 2019. When he weighed 337 pounds, Justin suffered from high blood pressure, high cholesterol and sleep apnea—all of which have resolved with weight loss. “My quality of life has done a 180-degree turn,” Justin says. “Now I can run without my knees and ankles hurting. I fit into restaurant booths. I can shop for clothes wherever I want to. I’m able to be more active with my family.” Justin encourages anyone considering weight loss surgery to go for it. “It is a total lifestyle change, but so worth it, not only for your overall health but mental health as well,” he says. “I would do it again, anytime! It’s live-changing for the good.” To start your own “Journey to a New You,” visit
