January 2019 Patient of the Month

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

Following years of emotional eating, both happy and sad, and numerous attempts at weight loss, I decided that I wanted to be able to enjoy my life. I have rheumatoid arthritis and the weight loss has helped my inflammation tremendously. The surgery itself was not extremely painful, by day 3 post op I was feeling so much better. I now enjoy going out with friends, shopping and being able to move normally. I began my journey at 242 lbs. and I am currently at 148 lbs. I feel great. Thank you Dr. Bilof, Michael, Julie, Anna and Jessica for helping me get my life back !
