"When I saw friends from high school I was self-conscious about my weight gain. Being overweight can really affect your self-esteem."
"I attended a seminar at North Cypress Weight Loss Center and felt so comfortable and secure with the surgeon and the hospital, even my wife said, "I think we should do it." Plus, North Cypress Medical Center is near my home which makes it convenient." Daniel has shed 85 pounds since his surgery. "I feel awesome. I have lots of energy and even cut my own grass for exercise. I've started jogging and working out. My wife says I am happier and more out-going."
"Having weight loss surgery was the best decision I've ever made. It's an investment in my life. I enjoy the monthly support groups. We share and compare experiences, and learn from one another."
"I tried diets only to gain back what I had lost. Then I was told that I was pre-diabetic. My husband is a diabetic who takes insulin. I didn't want to go through what he goes through, and he didn't want that for me either."
Idalia attended an informational seminar and decided to move forward with surgery. "I liked the fact that the center is close to my home. I didn't want to spend hours driving to see my doctor and to attend support groups, Idalia said.
Idalia has lost 60 pounds so far. "I feel great. I'm more health-conscious, eat a balanced diet and I walk and go to the gym for exercise. Weight loss surgery makes you change the way you think about food. One of the things I've done is gone from the dinner plate to the salad plate, which helps me manage healthy portions."
