I Feel Like Myself Again – Charles 4.5 Months After RNY Bypass


Hello everybody, the spring season has just begun! 🙂 Many off you can already see the first signs of this exciting season. So much light, freshness and happiness is in the air… As such, it only makes sense that we talk about positive things. So today we would like to show you another update letter from one of our newer patients who says he feels really great! Charles writes that he feels himself again. Isn’t that great? But this is not the end of good news. Charles also writes that by losing weight, his dose of medication is now minimal and his glucose levels are safe. Here is Charles letter:

100 pounds less! I wish I had not waited so long to have my surgery. I spent so much time in pain and misery because of my worries about going to Mexico. I feel so much better and more like myself again. Please let everyone there know how much I appreciate everything. And a special “thank you” to you!! I’m so glad you helped me decide to go with the bypass verses the sleeve. I’m now off of most of my medications and I’m on lower doses of the ones I still need. Also, I was taking 60 units of insulin twice a day along with meal-time insulin which I’m now completely off of with glucose levels back to normal!! I guess if there is a drawback it’s that I now need to buy new clothes because the ones I have are literally falling off/down. LOL. I’m totally good with that!!! Thanks again to you and everyone else at BeLiteWeight!!! Cheers!

Perhaps also many of you are still faced with the decision about weight loss surgery. Six months ago Charles was exactly in the same position. Today he is grateful that he took this brave step and decide to have surgery. If you still have doubts or more questions, don’t wait for tomorrow, call us now 🙂 Maybe this small moment will change your life.

Faster than Last Time : Deborah 3 years After Gastric Sleeve


Imagine a life without stress… it’s not an easy task. It has long been known that stress is a part of life, but some of us can feel stress more than others. Let’s be honest, today’s world is not the most peaceful period in the history of mankind. We are in a pandemic that has been with us for many months, a presidential election that will be over soon, fires, hurricanes and other disturbing news from all around the world.

So many factors can very easily increase our stress levels. How do we stop and reduce tension? Albert Einstein supposedly said “life is like riding a bicycle. To keep your balance, you must keep moving.” So maybe the solution is even easier than you think…

One of our patients Deborah truly takes to heart these famous words of Einstein. She not only improved the quality of her health but most of all she made her life much better and continues to strive for even more. In her words “I want to make the rest of my life the best of my life” So let’s hear more from Deborah.

“One of my new favorite activities is kayaking. It’s a great total upper body workout and you get to enjoy nature”. Change it up between cardio, like walking and jogging, and other days work with weights and strength training. A little time at the gym can give a good endorphin boost. Weights will help tone you and also help increase bone strength. “Take pictures of yourself so that later you can see the progress. You get so used to seeing yourself in the mirror that sometimes you don’t see how you have really changed. But most importantly, love yourself every step of this journey we call life. My goal is to make the rest of my life the best of my life.”

As you can see, focusing on your own health has the power to improve your life without adding more stress. You can do this too! The choice does not have to be painful, it’s up to you to decide what to do. If you like to swim, go to the swimming pool. You enjoy the dancing ? Turn on the music and start your party 😊

Positive focus on your health in can act as a stress reliever. Being active can boost your feel-good endorphins and distract you from daily worries. Additionally, exercise has a positive effect on reducing the risk of cardiovascular and metabolic diseases.

Just as it did for Deborah, we hope your focus on a healthy lifestyle will give you great pleasure too!

Finally Living Again: Heidi 6 Month Post Sleeve



One decision can change your whole life. Once again, BeLiteWeight is very happy to hear another beautiful story from one of our newer patients Heidi. It makes us especially proud to see her with such a big bright smile & writing such kind words in her recent letter. She gave us permission to share it!

Heidi:

At my heaviest I was 225 pounds at only 5’2. I was so physically tired carrying around the weight. I have an office job and kids that were older so my lifestyle really supported my obesity. I could get away with sitting most of the day at work and then when I got home I could do the same. Each day I would sit more and more because it was so exhausting to me to do anything else. So I just stopped trying.

One day when I was bringing groceries into the house I really lost my breath. I had to take a break between each trip back to the car. It was that day in 2018 that I decided I HAD to do something. I had been on every program you can think of before that, but I went right back online to sign up for a paid program. Once there I decided to look into weight loss surgery. I wanted something that would work this time! Then I saw how much it cost! No way I thought. It wouldn’t be an option for me and my insurance didn’t cover it. So, I google weight loss surgery without insurance and magically Beliteweight came up in that search! Being able to talk to real people and use a company that is based in the US sealed the deal for me. I had my surgery on December 7, 2018. I was still 225 pounds on surgery day.


I am now one year and 2 months post op. I hit my goal weight of 125 one year post op. I am now currently at 118. I am healthy and active! I just returned from a trip to Cabo where I was able to wear a regular bathing suit. You know what I mean, one that I didn’t have to be completely covered. I had spent many years avoiding trips and being around the water. I had to wear bathing suits that covered my entire stomach and shorts or a skirt kind of bottom to hide the thighs. I felt like to go to the beach or the pool I was still fully dressed. During my trip I never once felt like people were staring at me. I spent most of the days by the pool or at the beach… in my bikini!!! It felt amazing.

I have so many non scale victories I could continue typing for the next month. Everything I do is physically easy to me now. It doesn’t even cross my mind anymore. I think about something I want to do and I just do it. No regrets after at all. This has changed my life. It was the best decision I have ever made for myself. I am finally living again.

The support that you get from the people at BeLite is amazing. They have continued to stay in touch. The trip to Mexico for my surgery was amazing. The hospital there was better and cleaner than any I’ve ever been to here in the states. The surgeons are very attentive and really spend the time with you that is needed. I met my surgeon the moment I walked into the center. I had absolutely no issue communicating with any of the staff there. I literally speak zero amount of Spanish. They took great care of me before and after my surgery.

If you’re ready to start living again… this is the way to go!!! I’m so excited about my life I’m living right now and look forward to the life I get to live in the future.

Thank you for being such a great role model for others who are struggling to reach their target weight. In such a short time

Obesity History & Future


The modern diet has developed over the past 50 years to now consist of significant quantities of chemicals and poor quality carbohydrates. Two recent studies look at both the past and the upcoming projections at how obesity has and will continue to impact our lives. Americans are not getting smaller, and there are serious consequences on our human genetics because of this global trend.

The New York Times recently released an article that scientists project by the year 2030 fifty percent of American adults will by scientifically obese. While it may seem that health fads and exercise regiments have helped counter the obesity trend, this is true for only particular groups. As a whole the nation is becoming much unhealthier.

One major impact that this diet has had on our human genetics as a whole can be seen in the declining puberty rates in females since the 1970s. A European study published in The Independent details how over 38 research projects were compared with more than ten thousand girls from all over the world. Scientists suspect that obesity is a major contributing reason.
