Nicole – Gastric Bypass

Nicole, before and after

You can talk to Dr. Weiner about anything. My mother and I went through the program together, and it was great to have her go through it with me. But I give credit to Dr. Weiner for our success.

I had 5 children in 10 years, and with each pregnancy, I kept the baby weight. After my last child I had reached 386 pounds. I found myself avoiding mirrors because I did not like what I saw. I just didn’t have energy to keep up with children. With one life to live and a family to care for, I knew I had to get serious about my weight problem. So together with my mother, I began the journey to better health and more energy. On October 23, 2008 I had gastric bypass surgery and in 18 months I lost 210 pounds and went from a size 30 to a size 10- 12. Now I am proud to go anywhere with my children and husband. My life has totally changed and is full of possibilities and opportunities. I have a bright, hopeful, healthly future, all because I took the first step with Dr. Weiner, who made all this change possible. Thank you Dr. Weiner, life is beautiful.
