Pam’s Weight Loss Journey

Surgery: Gastric Bypass
Date of Surgery: August 23, 2012
Weight Loss Since Surgery: 135 pounds

“Once I decided to have surgery, I attended a free seminar and then had a consultation with the surgeon.  The process took about 6 months, but it was a very important time that involved working with the nutritionist and other support staff helping to prepare your body and mind for the incredible journey that laid ahead!  This was one of the BEST decisions I have made to date for MYSELF!  Weight loss surgery had for the first time in my adult life enabled me to make better food choices, eat less and move more (exercise) and have the desired result of weight loss!  Weight loss surgery is not a magic wand that’s going to make you wake up skinny, but I promise you if you embrace the program and put in the effort, you will have amazing results and re-discover yourself.  I have, I’m worth it, and so are YOU!”
