Having struggled with various health problems, I knew that I wanted a change and wanted to move toward a healthier lifestyle. After considering the options, I decided to have weight loss surgery and use that as an important tool to reach my goals.
I chose Woman’s because I’ve always heard from others how great the staff and service was. Upon my first consultation, I felt completely comfortable. The staff put me at ease and didn’t treat me like a stranger, but rather a member of their family. Everyone was so patient and helpful; no matter what time I called or emailed with my endless questions, I always received a response and got the information I needed.
Since the surgery, my life has changed in so many ways and all are for the better. I’m more confident. I’m able to participate in family activities, which would have previously caused me to be so fatigued that I wouldn’t participate. I’m able to shop for clothes and not feel embarrassed about my size or image. I look in the mirror and smile, knowing that I made the right choice to transform my life.
The biggest changes since the surgery have been my eating and fitness habits. I eat better and stick to a healthier diet now. The food is great and I feel so much better. I also increased my workout regiment, I try to exercise a few times a week and really make sure to get in some cardio every day, even if it’s just walking. I’m no longer discouraged about working out. The limitations I had previously set on myself are gone. Overall, I’m a new me. I’m not the same person.
The biggest benefit of having had the surgery has been getting to take back control of my life. My health was a major concern for me and I knew I had to take charge. I often look in the mirror and just smile because I can remember the struggles and everything I’ve been through with my weight, but I know that is all behind me now and it’s an incredible feeling. I know that I made a very important decision and a commitment to live a healthier life and it has made all the difference. I thank God for guiding me through this journey. I thank my family for always supporting me and believing in me. And I thank the staff at Woman’s for all that they have done to help me reach this point in my life. Choosing to have weight loss surgery at Woman’s has been one of the best decisions I’ve ever made.
