Jason lost 72 Lbs with Gastric Sleeve*
I lost 72 lbs with gastric sleeve, however, before deciding to have weight loss surgery I felt like I had exhausted all of my options. I was trying to lose weight for as long as I could remember and nothing worked for me. Jenny Craig, the P90x exercise program, keto, intermittent fasting, low carb and the military diet - you name it, I tried it.
One evening I was coaching my daughter’s softball team and I got so winded and out of breath that I wasn’t able to finish the workout I was showing them. Then I looked at my daughter’s face. I saw how concerned she looked for me and in that moment I knew that I needed to make a change. After that incident, I called New Jersey Bariatric Center to set up an appointment to find out my options for weight loss surgery.
From day one, the staff was amazing. They made me feel so comfortable and I really felt like they saw my potential the moment I walked through the door. In the beginning I was unsure, nervous and concerned. My doctor, Dr. Thomas, was extremely informative and helpful. She addressed every concern that I had and she was a great listener. She made sure I understood the entire process; everything from potential risks to the success she said I could achieve.
I decided to have gastric sleeve surgery. The surgery was a successful tool in helping me realize the potential that I already had. It helped me accomplish what I wanted to with my weight loss.
Since my gastric sleeve, my life has changed completely. The biggest change is my confidence. Prior to my sleeve surgery, I used to think I wasn’t good enough. I always felt like I was going to embarrass myself and my family. Now, our relationship is stronger than ever and my wife and my daughter notice how much happier I am. I no longer feel held back by excess weight. I’m more mobile and more energetic than I was before and I genuinely have a new outlook on life. I’m more social and outgoing. I feel like I can do anything!
My tip for anyone who is considering weight loss surgery is to just make the call. Even if you’re scared. New Jersey Bariatric Center will address any concern you have and make sure that you are on the path to success.
