Today we’re checking in with one of our awesome former patients, Albert B. He reached out to us again to update us with the tremendous progress he’s been making since the last post-weight loss surgery profile we did on him. Since that last update back in May of this year, Albert has lost 39 more pounds! The progress continues and Albert’s been dedicated to it. But don’t take our word for it – we’ll let him explain himself!
“Since then, things have been great. I just keep getting better and better. I’m the healthiest I’ve ever been in my life, I have the energy to do more activities, and work wise, I have more stamina and energy to finish my job. I’m happier, not shy or timid, and just excited to finally feel free and alive!”
KEYS TO CONTINUED WEIGHT LOSS SUCCESS
“To keep up with my weight loss, I work out Monday through Friday at a nearby gym. I’m following a routine that I found using a helpful fitness app on my smart phone which helps with workout routines for various results. The one I follow is called ‘high volume training’ for bulking up in muscle. I also take part in various other activities such as basketball, hiking, mountain bike riding – just trying to stay busy and active. I also always try to make the healthiest decisions when it comes to food, like eating greens and salads. I still take vitamins from time to time and one thing I like to do is to never finish my full plate of food. I always leave a portion, it’s a reminder to myself of the new life I’m living.”
“For anybody considering or even thinking about the weight loss surgery, I highly recommend it. First of all, it was a pleasure going through the weight loss procedure with West Medical. Since the first time I stepped in their office, I felt the caring, loving, just downright feel good environment. On top of that, the surgeons, assistants, and just about everyone, were so caring and helped me through every step of my process. As for the surgery itself, I’ll let my pictures do the talking for me. All I will say, though, is this is the best decision I have ever made in my life. I do not regret it one single bit. Life is just so much better for me now. I’ve lost a total of 173 lbs since Dec 15, 2014. That being said, put your fear aside and make a change; go through with the gastric sleeve and see your life change before your eyes.”
THE BENEFITS OF WEIGHT LOSS
The benefits I am experiencing now because of the weight loss procedure are being able to shop wherever I want and not have to worry about something not fitting me nor them not having my size. That was one of the worst feelings for me as it was very discouraging and depressing for the most part. I’m so glad that I’m over that because my obesity had a lot to do with me being depressed. I also have more energy, am able to fit in places I wasn’t able to before, got rid of my health conditions or issues I was starting to acquire. Last but not least – the attention! That has to be one of the best benefits of it all! I’m getting second glances now because I look so great! Thank you West Medical!
