Total Pounds Lost: 92
For years I struggled with my weight, by my mid twenties I had gained over 100 lbs and was unable to keep up with my three young children. I battled with my self worth and searched for self acceptance. It wasn’t until I personally knew someone who had the Vertical Sleeve Gastrectomy that I even considered this an option for myself. I made the decision to liberate myself physically and emotionally by pursuing intentional weight loss through medical intervention. I wish I had chosen body autonomy sooner and not been so worried about being judged for choosing to have VSG. My experience at OCC felt safer and more relaxed than any medical procedure I have experienced in the US. The entire team was attentive, caring and capable from start to finish.
