Sticking with WWL-TVs Weight Loss Wednesday…we have a great story to share from St. Bernard Parish!

“….Well, it was official; he weighed in at 380 pounds….”   Jonathon Sanders Before

“…Jonathon is like a new person now. He no longer walks slowly down the hallway dragging his feet; looking at the ground and feeling so sad…. He says he has a lot more friends this year and the daily smiles on his face are priceless.”
