A Bariatric Success Story 

For the past 10 years, I have struggled with being overweight. I tried every diet in the book, but nothing seemed to work. Last summer was when I truly recognized I was at my worst and needed to make a change fast if I wanted to live a long life.

I spoke with my family doctor right away, and he recommended that I have gastric sleeve surgery and referred me to Dr. Marc Neff.

Going through with the surgery was the best decision I’ve ever made for myself. My only regret was not doing it earlier; I know many people say this, but it’s because it’s the truth.

My recovery was a little rough, but I made it through. I have been working hard to change my lifestyle ever since and it’s paying off. You have to keep working at it!

So far, I’ve gone down 8 pant sizes and I’ve lost 140 pounds; I plan on losing more. I’m doing stuff now that my weight used to prohibit me from doing before. Most importantly, I’ve gotten my life and confidence back, which is more than I could’ve ever asked for.

I couldn’t be more pleased with my results from weight loss surgery. Dr. Neff and his team are amazing caretakers and true lifesavers!
