My heart is full of gratitude as I sit down to write this email . Next week will mark 3 years since I’ve had surgery with Dr.Rodriguez. What a roller coaster this ride has been. From learning to portion control, learning new habits, learning to love the gym , it has honestly been learning how to live again. >>>> We all these changes came self love I never knew I had . Confidence to follow my dreams and the well power to keep going. I have been able to maintain an average of 105lbs lost and have gained about 15 safely . I have had a breast reduction with a lift and I am currently recovering from a tummy Tuck with lipo of the back and flanks. I feel great . Life is great. The work is never done that’s for sure . We will forever gain and loose and fluctuate. What’s important is the healthy habits I have been able to maintain and the structure I have set for myself . I will once again tell you I’ll never forget that lunch time phone call outside my local Starbucks where you told me your story and within a month I had my surgery booked . I was ready .

Stephanie’s Gastric Sleeve Weight Loss Journey


In 2010, Stephanie weighed 230 pounds. It was the heaviest she’d ever been. She tried to lose weight on her own, but one year later she was still over 200 pounds. She was depressed, embarrassed and ready for a change.

Dec. 2, 2011 was the first day of her new life.

Stephanie made the decision to have gastric sleeve surgery–and it was the best decision of her life.

She visited the gastric sleeve experts at BeLiteWeight, had the procedure, recovered and started seeing immediate results. A month after her surgery she was down to 177 pounds and happily snapping selfies of herself in the mirror. Three months after her gastric sleeve surgery, the inches were melting off of her thighs, waist and abdomen, and her photos showed a confident, happy woman standing in a workout tank-top and running shorts. She weighed 163 pounds and was ready to take on the world.

In March of 2012 she completed her first marathon. Stephanie’s decision to have gastric sleeve surgery, combined with her hard work, commitment and willingness to change her diet and exercise habits has paid off.

In March 2013, she put on a green and white striped dress and stood proudly before a photographer to show off a proud smile and a 145-pound body that just three years early had seemed impossible.

Stephanie’s is just one of the many success stories that the doctors at BeLiteWeight love to tell. If you’re ready to share your success story, contact BeLiteWeight today.
