Elizabeth lost 126 lbs with Gastric Sleeve*
Since having gastric sleeve surgery, I truly feel like my life has changed forever. I had been overweight for most of my life but it got worse after I moved to New Jersey. I had been trying to lose weight for 3 years - everything from hydroxycut, weight watchers, keto and working out in the gym. All of my weight loss efforts failed.
I don’t get embarrassed easily but I remember when I went to Six Flags with a big group of friends. We were having a great time. Then we went to get on my favorite ride, Nitro. The seatbelt would not click and I was asked to get off the ride in front of everyone. I have never felt that low before and I vowed to never feel that way again. That was when I decided to contact New Jersey Bariatric Center.
For me, the best part about NJBC was their honesty from the very beginning. The staff never led me to believe that this would be an easy journey but they did encourage me that it would be worth it. All of the appointments and nutrition visits and just their overall knowledge helped me so much during my process.
The gastric sleeve surgery helped me to minimize my portions. I was finally able to lose weight AND keep it off!
Now, I’m extremely comfortable in my skin and I have way more energy. I am able to play and keep up with my young kids. I am just so much healthier. If the only thing standing between you and your surgery is fear, this is your sign to go through with it!
