Sarah Loses Over 100 Pounds with her Gastric Sleeve

I was 36 years old and had tried every diet to lose weight when I decided to have my surgery.

Don’t get me wrong, I did have some success losing weight on my own. However, maintaining it became a struggle!

At my heaviest, I was 340 lbs and finding it difficult to perform my job effectively without pain. Any physical activity was becoming nearly impossible at this point.

After some research, I decided that SmartShape offered the best “tool” for me to be successful in losing weight and keeping it off long-term.

I was extremely anxious after deciding that the Gastric Sleeve was the right choice for me, with all the prep and pre-op planning. However, the staff at SmartShape offered the support I needed to get through it.

The clinic experience was top-notch in my opinion. Being a medical professional myself, I do find that I can be a tough critic, but the nursing staff was extremely attentive and helpful post-operatively and still check in regularly to date.

It has been 2 years since my surgery now, and I have lost 145 lbs. The life that I have gained however is beyond words.

I no longer suffer from the same social anxieties that I had experienced at 340 lbs. Simple things like sitting in a booth at a restaurant or fitting in an airplane seat are fears of the past.

The Gastric Sleeve is only a tool for success; the work and change in lifestyle are still necessary parts of the process.  You can now find me in the gym 4 times a week and enjoying every day to its fullest. I no longer hold myself back from doing the things I enjoy.

Thank you SmartShape for providing me with the tools and support I needed to be successful on this journey!
