October 2017 Patient Of The Month
October 26th 2016 will forever be the day that changed my life dramatically and for the best! After years of dieting, exercising, weight loss programs and a baby nothing seemed to help me lose the weight that I was so desperate to lose. I worked so hard, ate as healthy and clean as I could and nothing made the change that I needed. After consulting with friends who had the sleeve and a teared filled breakdown to my husband, with his support I finally decided to have my consultation with Dr Bilof. That was the best decision I have ever made. Walking into that office at 237 lbs, I was at my heaviest. I hated looking at myself in the mirror, hated any item of clothing I put on and honestly didn't want to go out because of what I looked like. I was so ashamed at what I had become. With the help of Dr. Bilof, and all of the staff at GSBWC, I was able to drop 81lbs in the year since my surgery. I gained my self-confidence back, I love getting dressed in the morning, and my energy is so high that playing with my kids is no longer exhausting after just 5 minutes. My lifestyle has changed for the better and I feel great for the first time in a long time! To think I weigh less now than I did when I graduated high school amazes me! I can't thank Dr. Bilof and the staff at GSBWC enough for helping me make my life great again and bringing "me" back!
