Video Journal: Revisiting Linette Freeman

“Linette Freeman of Coeur d’Alene first shared her story with Spokesman-Review columnist Cynthia Taggart three years ago. At the time she weighed more than 400 pounds and was considering weight loss surgery. Her friends and family raised money so that she could get laparoscopic gastric banding surgery, which promised quick weight loss. The elective surgery cost $25,000. Three years later, after some initial success, she has regained some of the weight and she is still working towards a healthy weight.”
