Starting Weight: 278 lbs., Current Weight: 148 lbs., 32 Years Old
Much of my personal weight loss journey was about creating a better life for my children. I had another doctor picked out in my mind, but I went to Dr. Zerey’s seminar and I immediately felt very comfortable. I had a few friends who had this surgery, so I was strongly considering it, but once I talked to Dr. Zerey I knew immediately that I wanted him to be my doctor. Dr. Zerey prepared me very well for the surgery – and he visited me multiple times afterward. I would definitely do it all over again! I tell everyone I see – even people I don’t know – how much this changed my life.
I had been overweight my entire life – since I was a child. Now, I make healthier choices and I’m passing that on to my kids. I have a 12 year-old & a 3 year-old and I don’t want them to face the same challenges I have faced. I am very open with my 12 year-old and talk to him about making healthier choices now, and we’re all mastering portion control. Some things that people who have weight loss surgery don’t even think about prior to having surgery. We all know, or should know, it requires a drastic lifestyle change. One of the strangest things of all that people do not think of is shopping for clothes. You literally have to learn to shop all over again.
I feel more confident and happier in my life. I’ve lost 130 pounds and everyone tells me how great I look. Now I have many days where I feel so fabulous I could conquer the world. And I have the double pleasure of feeling great and setting a positive example for my children. I feel like this is the best gift I could ever give myself and especially my kids.
