Diet, Exercise, Disappointment, Repeat. This was my story. For most of my life I was trapped in a cycle of chronic dieting and participation in the latest greatest exercise fad only to end with the same disappointing results; Minimal weight loss and overtime regaining what was lost as well as development of high blood pressure, joint issues and type II diabetes. Despite my best efforts obesity was gaining control of my life. I knew something had to change so I went on a quest to find out why my best efforts seemed futile.. After about two years of research what I finally discovered is obesity is a disease! Like other diseases it requires long term management that uses a whole person approach. It's about so much more than calories in and calories out.
Armed with reliable information and an awesome medical team I made the decision to have the Vertical Sleeve Gastrectomy (VSG) and it was undoubtedly one of the best decisions I've ever made in the fight to reclaim my health. In less than two years I am down 10 dress sizes, my diabetes is cured, my blood pressure is lower and my joints are thanking me on a daily basis..LOL!
