About The Speakers:

Connie Stapleton, Ph.D. is a licensed psychologist; author and owner of Mind Body Health Services located in Augusta, Ga. She has worked directly with surgical weight loss patients before and after weight loss surgery for nearly a decade. Dr. Stapleton is a national and international speaker on the prevention of weight regain and recovery from all addictions. She has presented at OH (Obesity Help), IFSO (International Federation for the Surgical Treatment of Obesity), ASMBS (American Society for Metabolic and Bariatric Surgery), ITTAP (International Treatment for Trauma and Addiction Professionals), and WLSFA (Weight Loss Surgery Foundation of America) conferences.

Dr. Stapleton refers to herself as her patients “Recovery Conscience” because they often tell her they hear her voice reminding them of the ways to do “the next right thing” in their everyday lives. Her motto is “My health. My responsibility. This day. Every day.”

Cari De La Cruz is a gastric bypass patient who happily maintains a weight loss of half her original body weight. She loves to share about her amazing Bariatric After Life because she knows “you can’t keep it if you don’t give it away”. Cari shares her story through passion, humor and truth and helps others achieve success and freedom from their food addiction in their own weight loss journeys. She can be seen doing witty and informative product reviews and discussing weight loss surgery on her YouTube channel, Tweeting about her latest blog posting or epiphany, offering positive inspiration on Facebook, chronicling weighty matters on her blog, or talking about all of it at obesity related events, conferences, educational forums and workshops.

An outspoken advocate for obesity rights, her ardent desire is to shape the discussion, change societal attitudes, and offer hope to those who battle the disease of obesity, every day.
