My name is Holly. I had sleeve done eight months ago, lost 54 pounds, and I feel awesome. I feel great.

I decided I’d have the sleeve done because I have yoyo dieted all my life, and I just got tired of it… and granted, I didn’t have 100 pounds to lose. It was not… I was slowly gaining weight and I didn’t want to get up to over 200 again, and so I decided if I keep doing what I’m doing, I’m going to keep getting what I’m getting, and I decided to take a different route, and it has proven successful.

Okay, so once I finally decided to have surgery, called and made an appointment, reception was very, very helpful, and really, the whole staff made the whole process smooth, and it was very intimidating to me, but they were able to take that weight off my shoulders.

I decided to go with Dr. Ganta for surgery because I have cared for some of his patients in the hospital and I’ve seen… I just see how the patients do and their recovery, and I’m impressed. I’ve been impressed by how well they do, and just… it was my choice. I see how he interacts with the patients and his compassion and caring, and he’s a great… He’s got it down to a… Of course surgery is a science, but he’s great.

So since surgery, my energy level is – my husband may disagree – but out the roof. I’m moving faster, I’m doing a whole lot more, it’s a lot more fun to go shopping these days, and I’m actually going to go on the boat this summer and not cry about it because I don’t feel bad about my body. I feel good about my body. I’m looking forward to doing that, and more baseball, more fun time with my 13-year-old.

Okay, so I have a 13-year-old, and before the surgery, I wasn’t interacting that much with him. Of course he loves his Tracy, my husband, and they’re like the best of buds, but he’s more… He’s warming up to me and we go out and we do more. I take him to practice and I enjoy that. I won’t play catch with him though because he throws too hard.

We went to the WAKO tournament not too long ago and actually went out and interacted with the other parents, which I usually wouldn’t do in the past. I just would prefer to go and wait in the room and be by myself, and Tracy and Brandon would go hang with the other parents and their families, and now I do it.

So if you’re thinking about bariatric surgery, you’ve got to do it. You’ve got to do it to change your health. I did it. I wish I hadn’t have waited as long as I did. I feel great. You’ll feel great. I would recommend nobody else than Dr. Ganta for bariatric surgery.
