Like many others, I had battled obesity my entire life. When my weight ballooned to the highest weight ever, I also acquired health issues like hypertension, high cholesterol and diabetes. Making the decision to have weight loss surgery was not a easy one and I knew it required a lifetime commitment. I felt more and more confidant leading up to my surgery date as the staff at the center answered all my questions, provided me the training, education and abundance of support to accomplish what I once thought was impossible. June 6.2007 was a new beginning for me after having RNY gastric bypass. Three months post surgery, I was removed from all prescription meds and I am still med free 2 years post op. One of the things that surprised me with weight loss was not knowing what I was missing. When you are overweight, it simply becomes your way of life and you know no other way or what struggles that the weight is stopping you from achieving. A big Thanks to Dr. Credi and the staff at the Center, I am now able to enjoy life instead of watching on the sidelines like I did when I was living large. It means more to me than you could ever know and with your continued support, I know I will not be living on the sidelines again!
Thanks again,
Rita

I never thought that I would feel as GREAT as I do today. My surgery was on October 1st, 2008 and to date I have lost 105 pounds. I went from wearing size 20/22 to a size 8/10. SINGLE DIGITS! IT IS AMAZING! This has been, and continues to be, a life changing journey and I am constantly learning and embracing my new life. Dr Credi, Julie (the best dietitian EVER) and the staff at Memorial Weight Loss & Bariatric Surgery Center are all absolutely wonderful. They all made, and kept, a promise to be with me every step of the way. They each will see, talk or email me whenever I need anything. I have had so much fun doing all the things that I was unable to accomplish in the years past. A friend introduced me to rock climbing and I never imagined I would be able to climb up and touch the ceiling. Because of this surgery, I am soaring to new heights every day!! I try to be a role model for my children and an inspiration to anyone that will listen.

What about your life has changed since your surgery?

EVERYTHING. My whole life has changed. My attitude, my outlook, the way that I treat people and the way people treat me. I now have the ability to get up and do things that I couldn't do before. I can walk without huffing and puffing. I can participate in ballroom dancing on a consistent basis and even my balance has improved. Health-wise, I'm off all my medications - my joint pain is gone - I'm off my sleep apnea machine. Every aspect of my life has improved because of gastric bypass and my own determination and strength of will.
