Janet's Story

Lost 164 pounds and still losing

I've got my life back! That's what I tell everyone since I had my Gastric Bypass surgery over a year ago. I was taking medications for High Blood Pressure, Type II Diabetes, GERD and Osteoarthritis. I also have sleep apnea and have had two knee replacements. I'm a nurse and I knew I had to lose weight to improve my health and because I wanted to see my grandchildren grow up. I tried every diet out there, exercise, and even hypnosis. Nothing worked permanently. I might lose 30-40 pounds but I would gain it back and more because I just couldn't stay on my "diet". I researched bariatric surgery and was hopeful but afraid of having it. My doctor even told me I was "too old" to have it done. Finally I decided to take the plunge and prove all the naysayers wrong. I HAD to do something because I couldn't do anything I really wanted to due to my weight. 

My weight was over 300 pounds when I first went to one of Dr. Ringley's seminars and for someone only 5'2" tall, that is way more than my bones and my joints could handle. Since my surgery I have lost over 160 pounds, and I am still losing although at a slower rate now. I can do things I haven't been able to do for years. I like to walk my dogs, play with my grandchildren, and I even bought a bike to ride. My grandchildren keep saying, "We have never seen you so small". I owe everything to the encouragement and support of Dr. Ringley and his staff. Without them I have no doubt that I would still be in the same rut I was in for over 25 years. If I can do it, anyone can do it. I am happy to say that, with the exception of my vitamins, I am medication free. This is NOT a diet, but a whole new way of life. I repeat... I’VE GOT MY LIFE BACK!!!
