A friend of a friend recommended OCC to me. Where a lot of the gastric surgery clinics offered what seemed to be miraculous quick fixes, OCC didn’t ever disguise the fact that I would have to work for what I wanted- and I have never regretted it!
By the time that I realized that my weight was a result of emotional eating, I was already pretty far gone. I led a busy high-stress academic life and I coped with it by eating a lot! To get something that controls your life that much under control is no small undertaking. I found a great doctor who understood my personal struggles, my goals and stood behind me during every step of my journey with OCC.
I remember thinking that this was not something that was conquer-able, but I’m here to tell you that it absolutely is. I don’t think that I could have done it without the support team that I had, but it’s achievable if you surround yourself with people who will encourage you and cheer for you along the way!
