Congratulations to Mark Leipski of Waukesha. He really is the biggest loser. He lost more than 2 hundred pounds in 2 years. But, his incredible weight loss left him with hanging skin prone to infections and he was in dire need of plastic surgery. At first, his insurance company denied coverage of the 10 thousand dollar operation. But after persistence, appeals, and our report aired on Today's TMJ4, Cigna Healthcare granted approval for Leipski's surgery. He tells me he's excited, but anxious. This is his last step of an incredible makeover that transformed Leipski from more than 400 pounds to 175. 
Mark Leipski lost weight the old fashioned way. Today he's a life long member of Weight Watchers. Every Saturday he goes to weigh in. In fact, his local Weight Watchers group has offered to go to his home for his weekly weigh-in during his recuperation. Mark's commitment to fitness and health is an inspiration. He's a reminder to all of us, that with hard work, persistence, and dedication you can change your life. Congratulations Mark! Here's to a speedy recovery!
