Libbie D - 6 Month Update*

I know you usually like to post a little text with the photo, so here is what I said on my Facebook post. You're welcome to use any or all of it...

I'VE OFFICIALLY LOST 100 POUNDS!! I expected to have to wait for this milestone for at least a year, but here we are not even 6 months out from surgery.

I have been working my booty off - counting carbs every single day, meeting my protein and water goals every single day, saying no to sugar every single day (the holidays..boo). I've been showing up every single day and staying consistent, so excuse me while I toot my own horn (toot toot!).

Even though I've put in the work, I know I would not have been able to do it without my new tool.

Feeling grateful for this journey and looking forward to what's next.

Hi Joanne! I have kept around 120 lbs off, and still feel better than I ever knew was possible.

I never fully reached my goal, but have plans to get around 40lbs off this year to get there.

Attaching a picture here that shows me the day I left the hospital, and one taken this past weekend.

Thank you!

Flor S - 1 Year Update*

Hello!! Thank you!!

Over all my journey has been great! I was fortunate enough to be able to glide through each step with out gas pain or any of the side effects many experience during this journey.

I immediately felt so much better physically. In a matter of weeks my leg inflammation and sciatica pain that had been a constant ailment and made my daily life that much harder to sit, stand or walk was gone!! Inflammation in my bladder that I wasn't aware of also went away and I was no longer going to the restroom every 1.5 hours or having accidents. Obviously, my mobility and energy got better as I lost more weight. The physical outside changes have been amazing but having my chronic pain because of my weight disappear has been the biggest Blessing of all.

 

My only downfall is that my weight loss has been in stall mode since June. I weighed in at 245 then and have gone down to 230 and everywhere in between since then (Started at 315). Needless to say it has been very frustrating to not see the # 's go down. I obviously see the difference in my clothes and even shoe size. I don't expect to be a size 4 or even a 10 I'm a big girl no matter what but my goal was to go down to 180 lbs. That will be my goal for these next couple of months by hitting my protein intake and exercises.

 

I will always tell anyone that asks me about this surgery, that it was the best decision of my life because it gave me my life back!! Being able to be at and volunteer at my kids sports/band activities, dance with my husband and enjoy life so much more is nothing but the biggest Blessing. Knowing I extended my life span by making this choice is amazing. Living without pain is the best part.

Paula S - 4 Year Update*

I started my WLS Journey in 2007 with the LapBand. I was over 400 pounds. I successfully got down to 270 pounds, but then had complications with the band. When I had surgery with Beliteweight, I had a revision to RNY Gastric Bypass. The band had been deteriorating. I'm so grateful for Dr. Jose Rodriguez Villarreal. He gave me my life back. And I was able to continue my weight loss journey. I'm now 208 pounds. Still have a little more to go. But I'm so happy with where I'm at , even now, I am doing much better. I've had my first round of skin reconstruction surgery. And second round is next year. I lost over 200 pounds.

Leigh W - 9 Month Update*

I know it’s not an official check in but a friend sent this picture to me and I just stopped in my tracks and cried.

Down 115 lbs. Dec 2021-Oct 31,2022. Surgery was February 6, 2022. Almost 9 months PO. I’m doing great and my labs are phenomenal.

I don’t know who the person on the left is anymore. I never want to meet that person again.

Yes, please do share! I want to be a motivational speaker at some point. I feel like it is my new calling after going through this. I wish I had not waited so long to go through this process.

I had been dieting since I was 10 years old. I had an eating disorder at 10 years old. That is insane!

People should not have to live their life so miserable when there is a tool out there to help them. This is not an easy fix by any means. I have a whole new level of confidence that I never had before. I went hiking last weekend for the first time in over 10 years and it felt great!

Thank you so much to the team!!

Thank you for reaching out to me. Wow it has been a four year journey from 293 lbs at my heaviest and unhealthiest to my today weight of 173 lbs and no longer on any diabetic medication or cholesterol medicine.

I'm still a work in progress and probably will remain so because this surgery was a tool to help me get healthy. I'm sending a before picture and an updated picture.

Thank you all for your help in guiding me in the right direction.
