Jasmine lost 158 lbs with Gastric Sleeve*
I had been overweight since high school. Growing up I was always chubby, but my health started to decline in high school. After I had my kids, I really focused on losing weight. I was dieting and I tried weight watchers. I started to exercise too. I wasn’t really focused on eating right so I wasn’t able to keep the weight off long-term.
I vividly remember taking my two young sons to the park one day. I was sitting in the car watching them play and I thought to myself, “This isn’t it.” I knew at that moment that I needed to make a change. Then I called New Jersey Bariatric Center and began the process for gastric sleeve surgery.
The gastric sleeve surgery helped me in so many different ways. First, I’ve lost 158 pounds and I have so much more energy now. Since the surgery I make better choices about what I’m putting in my body, and I no longer overeat.
The staff at NJBC was very on top of things. Even before the surgery, Dr. Goyal always had my back and truly helped me every step of the way. Going into the operating room I had a full understanding that this surgery was just a tool and that losing the weight was up to me. They were very motivating.
I also felt very supported by everyone. New Jersey Bariatric Center is always offering support to their patients with Tuesday Talks and even virtual yoga classes.
My life has changed so much since gastric sleeve surgery. I feel genuinely happy and very confident. I know I am going to live a much longer and fuller life and I have so much gratitude. I exercise so much more now. I even have a job that’s somewhat physically demanding.
Life with my family has changed for the better too. I can now do so many more things with my kids. Traveling is so much better and I even wear bathing suits! This surgery has boosted every part of my life from my relationships with my friends and family to my overall health
