APPLETON, WI (WTAQ) - It's a health issue that's overtaking smoking as the number one killer in the U.S., and costs us more than $117 million dollars each year.  

That issue is obesity.

In the three-part series above, Robin O'Brien of Appleton allowed WTAQ into her life to talk about her reasoning behind having bariatric surgery.

O'Brien had the surgery at Midwest Bariatric Solutions in Neenah, under the expertise of Dr. Ray Georgen and Dr. Kevin Wasco.
