My Weight Loss Journey


[smartslider3 slider=10]

Surgery Date: March 2014
Weight Lost: 143 lbs.
Procedure: Virtually Scar-less, Minimally Invasive, Laparoscopic Sleeve Gastrectomy by Dr. Arif Ahmad.

Monica is the living embodiment of before-and-after.

“My life before the surgery was boring, uneventful and like a prison… After the surgery I have to say I feel blessed, excited and fortunate.  I feel like I was trapped in somebody else’s body. I had this spirit that just wanted to get out and do things and be fun. My weight hindered me from doing that. My kids didn’t really get a true sense of who their mother was because they always knew me as a heavy mom.  Being heavy is not just an aesthetic thing, it’s something that affects your mind and your spirit. I didn’t want to have people perceive me as this fat, overweight, lazy person — because I’m not — but in essence that’s what happens.”

Surgery date: February 2010
Weight lost: 165 pounds
Procedure: Virtually Scar-less & Minimally Invasive Laparoscopic Gastric Bypass, by Dr. Arif Ahmad.

“My whole life started over for me after surgery, it was a new beginning, a new time to focus on myself, on my goals, on my marriage, on my career and really to just be happy — and that has been the best gift I’ve ever received.  I’m not Kelly who was really fat before. I’m not Kelly who had weight loss surgery. I’m just Kelly. And that is awesome.  When I went into Dr. Ahmad’s office for the first time and met his support staff, they were so wonderful.  Once you become a patient at Dr. Ahmad’s office, you truly become family. Their staff is absolutely amazing. They will give and give and give anything that you could possibly need from them.  I know them by their first name, they know me by my first name. That to me is something that is priceless in this day and age.”

Weight lost: 175 pounds
 Virtually Scar-less & Minimally Invasive, Laparoscopic Gastric Bypass, by Dr. Arif Ahmad

“I just felt terrible, it was getting worse and worse, I was really obese and it affected my sleep at night.  I went to my medical doctor and he actually told me bluntly — he shocked me — you’re going to die soon if you keep this up. You know you’re going to get diabetes. You’re going to get a heart attack.  I developed a personal connection with Dr. Ahmad and the team. — I just felt very comfortable and I couldn’t wait to start the operation. When I had the operation, the hospital treated me like I was a VIP. Now I’m one of the people that goes tells somebody else, ‘hey, you go there, you’re going to be treated right!”

“I’m always moving now, I have a very physical job and I used to try and sit in the office as much as I could. But now I’m out on the sales floor doing a lot more. Some of my coworkers even said, ‘do you ever stop?’ And I don’t stop anymore. I just keep going. I have all the energy that I had when I was younger. — I can’t say enough good things about the surgery and about Dr. Ahmad and his staff”  – MaryLouise

“I heard weight loss surgery would eliminate my diabetes…  We wouldn’t have gone any place else to have that surgery.  It is like have an extended family now — and they’re all there to help us.” — Lee
