"I feel like I belong to the community now, and not on the sidelines anymore."
Before my bypass surgery, it was challenging and physically hard to do everyday things like bending down, tying my shoes and climbing up stairs. I would run out of breath all the time.
What made me decide to do my surgery was a lifetime of yo-yo dieting. I was never able to get anywhere near my goal weight and I was unable to keep weight off for any length of time. I finally decided that I wanted to break that cycle and just get healthy. I knew I wasn't getting any younger and as you get older you run into problems with diabetes and high blood pressure. I wanted to avoid those things.
I went to one of Dr. Floch's seminars and I was very much impressed with what he had to say.
I had my fifth anniversary this year and I'm having the best time of my life.
There's no comparison to the way I felt before. I feel so healthy and energetic. I belong to the community now; a member of the community and not like I'm on the sidelines anymore. I have so much more stamina.
Its just amazing what it did for my confidence, my self-esteem, and my overall health.
