Part III: Through Thick and Thin

(01/15/03) WHITE PLAINS - In November of 2000, we watched doctors at White Plains Hospital Center perform a radical procedure on an obese woman.

The goal was to help her lose weight from her 5'8'' 369 pound frame.

For two years News 12 Westchester's Lisa LaRocca kept track of Laurie Antalek to monitor her progress.

In the final part of her series Through Thick and Thin, we'll find out if Laurie made the right decision.
