March 2020 Patient of the Month

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

My decision to have gastric surgery was because of my 17 year old daughter.   I have been over weight my whole life but I have NEVER had confidence issues.  I was not depressed; I could always find cute clothes.   I loved me and the skin I was in.  My only issue was always my health. 

My family has a history of diabetes, high blood pressure and high cholesterol.  I had all three by the age of 30 and was on several medications.  When my doctor told me that I would have to be switched from pills to insulin to control my diabetes, I knew something had to be done.  Since the surgery, I have been taken off ALL my medications.  I got on a roller coaster for the first time this summer (its been YEARS) and I got on a airplane and didn't need a seat belt extension.  THAT WAS A GREAT FEELING!  I’m not at my ideal weight yet, but I feel and look better than ever.  Thank you Dr. Bilof and Staff.   #LOVEYOURSELF
