I was overweight my whole life. At 13 I can still clearly remember my pediatrician telling my dad "she is too fat". I never worried about it too much because I felt "good" about myself. I tried different diets for some time, I would loose some weight and gain it right back. As the years passed I just didn't have time to worry about my weight with everything else happening in my life; I was being a wife, a mother of two, a full time college student and a full time employee. I was constantly tired and simply drained. I was carrying so much weight that my whole body ached, as if it was screaming for help. I would get up in the morning and take my first step out of bed only to complain about my ankles and knees hurting. My 7yr old would tell me "mommy you are always tired, all you want to do is sleep" which only made me feel like I was failing as a mom. I slowly and without ever noticing creeped up to 225lbs. Until it finally hit me!
I decided I could not continue that way. I needed energy, I needed motivation and I realized it was not something I could do on my own. I managed to loose 15lbs on low carb diet but after 2 weeks the motivation was slowly dying and that is when I decided to make an appointment at Blueridge Bariatrics and it was the best decision I could have made for me and my family. The program was easy to follow and the supplements gave me not only the energy I needed but they helped with my cravings and detoxing from all the junk I put in my body for years. I lost 50lbs in 5 months but the best part is that I developed a new lifestyle that will keep me healthy for a long time. My body fat went down by 6%, I am out of the obese category and full of energy! From a size 14 to a size 8 and sometimes 6!!!
It takes determination, dedication and hard work. It is all you want it to be!
Thanks so much Blue Ridge Bariatrics!!! 100 lbs gone!!!!

The ladies at Blue Ridge Bariatrics have been phenomenal. After 5 months they helped me to lose 27 lbs. I came in at the beginning feeling sluggish and tired with a lot of back pain. I always leave their office feeling light on my feet and happy. I am definitely coming back to these lovely ladies so I can maintain my weight further. I cannot thank them enough.
