I had gastric sleeve surgery on August 28th, 2018 and I’ve lost 70 lbs.
I’ve tried every diet out there; Jenny Craig, Weight Watchers, and Medi Weight Loss Centers. I even tried my own regimen over the years I found myself just in this yoyo dieting cycle.
I would lose a few pounds and then gain it right back. I lost hope. I started to stress eating; turning to food for comfort not realizing how bad it all had gotten for me. Food had become the controller of my life.
I had no desire to go out in public. I was ashamed of the way I felt and how I looked. I became someone I never thought could be possible. I heard about weight loss surgery. Knowing I’ve never had any type of surgery before I was very skeptical about it because all else had already failed me. I decided to go to a seminar to get more information and on that day it is where I met Dr. Abe Fridman. The presentation he provided was genuine. The passion in his voice for how he changes lives every day gave me a reason to have something and someone to believe in. From the moment I walked in his office I felt as if I was the only patient he had to help. His undivided attention to my cry for help at the hardest time in my life was eased and assured. I was going to be successful in this process and I couldn’t have chosen a better doctor to put my 100% trust in.
After my surgery I found myself again. I gained confidence back I was in control of my life again. I even started going back to the gym and before I knew it, I was feeling better than I’ve ever felt; going from a size 20 to a 10. Seeing the transformation before me was so motivating . I love shopping for clothes again. I enjoy going out and sharing my experience with others who notice the changes in me.
This is a life changing experience. I can’t wait to see where this amazing journey takes me next. I really wanted to just share my life story so I can help others who are going through a similar life experience or who knows someone who is struggling with health issues and obesity, to never give up hope.
