New Lenox, IL (August 13, 2015) — When 355 pound Les James arrived in the emergency room with a tingling in his arm and chest pain, the 38-year-old thought for sure he was having a heart attack. “I was experiencing all the typical symptoms of someone who was having a heart attack,” exclaims James. As he sat in the hospital, all he could think of was how he lost his Dad at a young age due to weight-related health issues. “This health scare to the emergency room was God’s wake up call to me. I had a very sobering reflection - I am my father’s son. I was almost the same weight as my Dad when he passed away,” said James. “It was at that moment, I knew I had to change my life, so I could be there for my wife, son and two daughters.”  Since losing over 144 pounds after having weight loss surgery with BMI Surgery at Silver Cross Hospital, James is relishing every day as he eats healthier foods and exercises regularly.
