Hazel and Norman
Weight Loss Surgery Patients
"Norman and I were on the keto diet for two years, and we did great until we started eating carbs. It was all over then! We didn’t gain all of our weight back, but wasn’t far from it when we decided to have surgical weight loss, specifically 'the sleeve.'Norman had previously had the band without desired results, but knew that he had to do something to keep up with his young wife (yes, this is Hazel writing this!) Together, we have successfully lost a whole person over the past year! We have gained self-confidence, and we are more motivated than ever. The surgical weight loss team has been amazing! They truly care about their patients and go above and beyond to ensure their overall success. This includes the overwhelming doubt wheeling into the operating room where they pause to say, 'Are you sure that this is what you want to do?' while holding my hand. My advice to anyone that is considering weight loss surgery is to just do it. Life is short, and it is great to be able to enjoy it!"
