April 2019 Patient of the Month

April 2019 Patient of the Month Garden State Bariatrics & Wellness Center

On April 11, 2016, I made one of the best decisions of my life. After 3 kids and years of obesity, my weight soared to 290 lbs. After losing 100 lbs. on my own and then regaining it all back (plus some), I told myself enough was enough. I decided to have gastric sleeve surgery.

Since my surgery, I have lost a total of 145 pounds. I have never felt better! I am now a personal trainer and have made it my mission to help people who have the same struggles I once had. My journey has been long, and not an easy road, but I would do it again tomorrow if I had to.
