January 2020 Patient of the Month

January 2020 Patient of the Month Garden State Bariatrics & Wellness Center

My name is Shakeyhia Abbott and I am a patient of Garden State Bariatrics.  I had the Gastric Sleeve Surgery. Growing up, I was always the fat or the heavyset girl.  As I got older, I started having miscarriages and other health issues which took a toll on me mentally and physically. I decided it was time to take control of my weight which was 275lbd.  I started eating less, going to the gym, participating in outdoor activities and even tried not eating to lose weight.  I would lose 5lbs but gain 7lbs back.  

Finally I was fed up and I wanted to be healthy. I reached out to Garden State Bariatrics and on 12/26/2018 Dr. Bilof changed my life.  I will forever be grateful. I feel and look AMAZING. I went from weighing 275lbs to now an amazing 159lbs!
