I was overweight most of my life. I was diagnosed with PCOS (Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome) at the age of 18, which contributed to my fast weight gain and inability to lose weight. I have always been labeled as pre-diabetic with high blood pressure. I was up & down with my weight my whole adult life. I finally thought about weight loss surgery when I got married in 2012 and wanted to conceive. I went to a weight loss doctor for a consultation in 2014 but didn’t go through with procedure. I continued my research in 2018 and found TLC. I loved the entire staff from the front desk to the surgical center where the procedure was done. Drs. Sherman Yu and Sheilendra Suresh Mehta made me feel so comfortable. They educated me on the process for the gastric sleeve step by step. The procedure changed my life. My starting weight was 339 pounds, surgery weight was 319 pounds, my current weight is 203 pounds and counting. I walk 2 miles a day and 30 minutes strength training 5-6 days a week. I used to get steroid shots in my knees every 3 months because of the pressure my weight placed on my knees but no more thanks to TLC!! I encourage anyone who’s thinking about having any of the procedures to use TLC. I love the new me and soon my family will have an additional person because I’ve lost the weight, I now have normal cycles, and my OBGYN is starting me on fertility cycle!!! Thank you TLC.
