I realized if I wasn't going to be left behind if I was going to have a life in retirement if I was going to enjoy myself if I was going to look forward to getting up every day...the first thing that had to go was 150 pounds. I chose Live Healthy MD primarily because my primary care physician, but when I came in to check them out everyone was just super! Everybody here is just fantastic. I have never had anything but a smile on my face—phenomenal staff!
Weight loss has been a battle for me my whole life. I decided to go with Live Healthy MD because the people here are unlike the people I have met anywhere else. They are so kind and I really truly feel like they care about me and they want to see me be successful. They have celebrated with me on good days and they have motivated me on bad days and I could not ask for better staff, or a better family, to help walk me through that. My entire life has changed since having surgery —in the best way possible.
I decided to have weight loss surgery because no diet worked for me and when I started gaining back everything while I was stull on diets I noticed that it was time for the permanent change. I chose Live Healthy MD because the staff was always so supportive—they were all so personable and so friendly and every time I walked through the door it was like being greeted by family.
So far I've lost a total of 142 pounds from my highest weight. Since having my surgery, I'm now able to do a lots of things outside which I enjoy doing. I would definitely recommend Live Healthy MD to anyone!
I have struggled with obesity since I was in elementary school and I have gone on pretty much every diet known to man. There are times where maintaining your weight loss can be difficult, but there is a lot of support out there. Especially through the Live Healthy group where you can stay in constant communication with other weight loss surgery patients and your dietitian, or your surgeon for that matter.
I was really overweight and I had decided it was time for me to do something about it so I decided I would go and see the doctors at Live Healthy MD. 105 pounds later, I have that energy, I can run. 2 years later, after the surgery I feel great, I feel wonderful, I feel like I could go out and run marathons if I wanted to.
I had my surgery 6 years ago and my top weight was 310 pounds. In 6 years I have lost 120 pounds. I've kept it off, even had a child in between. I still eat basically whatever I want to eat, I just have to now eat a lot less of it. Definitely having the surgery is the best thing I've ever done for me in my life.
I had my surgery back when I was 47 years old. I was at my cardiologist and he weighed me—I weighed 321 pounds. My cardiologist told me "If you don't do something about your weight, you will never live to be 55 years old". Today, I am 120 pounds lighter. It's life changing! How do I feel? I feel like a million bucks!
I've lost 170 pounds. My body had gotten so big I was in pain all the time. I decided that I would try the surgery. I've lost all the weight and now I can do things with my grandkids which I couldn't do before. Live Healthy MD has saved my life.
I've lost 160 pounds. Before I had the surgery, I started having health issues. What made me actually have the surgery, was Iooking at pictures, I realized I wasn't happy. My life now is a lot better, I can run, I am more energetic. The experience that I had with Live Healthy MD was amazing!
