The Best Decision I’ve Ever Made
Amir Caldera – Mendoza, Surgical Weight Loss Patient
I am 33 years old and I am 1 year and 3 months post Bariatric Surgery. I decided to do the surgery because I gained weight after my pregnancy. The excess weight left me feeling sad, frustrated, tired and depressed. People called me names like “big whale” and “three hundred.”
I tried dieting, exercise and I hired a personal trainer but nothing worked for me. I would always lose a few pounds that would come right back. Eventually I had enough and I decided to go to a Saint Francis Center for Surgical Weight Loss seminar. That night was the first day of my new life!
Two weeks before my surgery I weighed 210 pounds. I followed the directions from Dr. Virginia Weaver and proceeded with my liver shrink diet. The day of the surgery I weighed 199 pounds. After the surgery I continued to lose a lot of weight.
Today, I weigh 120 pounds and I feel great! I wear clothes that look good on me and make me feel good. I eat healthier, I quit smoking, I have more energy and my depression is gone. I want to thank Dr. Weaver and her staff for all their help and support!
I am a happy girl again thanks to the best decision I’ve ever made!
