Operation Date: May 2013
Weight Loss: 240 lbs.
Procedure: Gastric Sleeve
Ever Since before I can remember, I was always a big guy! Never did I have any health problems, I was just fat. I would eat whatever I wanted whenever I wanted and quickly my weight got out of control. When I started the process with My Bariatric Solutions I was tipping the scales at close to 500 pounds. I decided that something had to be done, and sooner rather than later. With lots of help and support from everyone at My bariatric solutions, I started my journey. Jumped through all of the insurance hoops that we all love so much.
My surgery date was set for 5-10-13! My official weight the morning before surgery was 482 pounds. Everyone at the hospital was great and went as expected. Now, the hard part! I started working out and walking everyday and continued with that continually escalating my workouts as I became more and more physically able, and it paid off! Sticking to the goals you set for yourself, and working closely with the dietitians on what to eat and how to eat helped so much! Don’t get me wrong, this is not easy at all, but if you are in the right frame of mind and you know that you want to change, you can do it, and everyone at My Bariatric Solutions is willing to help.
I am down to 236 pounds of 11-1-14 and still working to lose those last 20-30 pounds. Deciding to have weight loss surgery is the best decision I have made hands down in my entire life. Make the leap, the staff will be there to help you every step of the way!!
