Patients 40-59 Years Old
My sister, mom & brother in law all had surgery at OCC
I’ve had my history of fluctuating weight. I would gain and lose. I worked out, a lot, which I love. Spin, running, boxing, weight training. I tried every diet, they all “work” and then some of the weight would come back. I’m an emotional eater. I’ve experienced a lot of sadness and health issues since 2016. My I cope through eating and drinking. My family had a history of obesity and I was the “lucky one” was always able to fight it, until I couldn’t anymore. In January 2021 I stepped on the scale and was the heaviest I’ve ever been. Thanks to someone who loves me immensely they saw what was happening to me. It was depression and family genetics. In March 2021 I had the surgery. I knew it was the right decision from the moment it was offered to me.
I’ve now regained my life back! I am back to exercising, cooking healthy meals and I love date night with my husband again because I feel confidant and I want to get dressed and go out! More than anything, I love me – I feel healthy and vibrant!!!
