My Journey

At 406 pounds, my entire life revolved around food. If I was happy… I ate. If I was sad… I ate. Bored, tired, awake, stressed, excited, worried… I ate! I was simply a person stuck in a seriously unhealthy relationship with food. My weight was affecting me physically. I had high blood pressure, heart palpitations, and early onset type 2 diabetes that caused sores that wouldn’t heal. My bones and joints hurt from simply existing. I had sleep apnea and slept horribly. I also took multiple medicines every day for weight related issues.

However, after having had the surgery, I can happily say I lost a little over 170 pounds. This translates to me going down 20 pant sizes (56 to a size 36), five shirt sizes (5XL to a XL), an entire shoe size, and a complete hat size. I also went from a size 14 wedding ring to a size 10. My entire body shrunk. I also found that I actually have energy. I am no longer hindered by the extra weight. No longer do I have to take any weight related medications, and I have zero weight induced medical issues!

Frankly, I could sit here and spend the next 12 hours telling you how my life has changed for the better. However, what I will tell you is that bariatric surgery has absolutely, unequivocally, and honestly changed my life in so many positive ways that it has made me a better father, husband, friend, brother, son, and person. I thank Dr. Cheregi and bariatric surgery for this renewed lease on life. Dr. Cheregi has the best bedside manner I have ever had or even heard of! That is no joke! With his surgical skills and knowledge, I lost more than 170lbs! Dr. Cheregi is best in his class and top notch!

If you’re thinking about losing weight… if you have struggled to get the weight off… if you feel stuck… if you are morbidly obese…. Please, STOP and look into Bariatric Surgery with Dr Cheregi. Ask About it… consider it… I have been super successful, and you absolutely can too!!!
