Weight Loss Success… The Real Story

My name is Becky Thompson. I was born and raised in West Monroe, Louisiana. I have always been a pretty positive and upbeat person; of course, I had to be in order to overcome such an all consuming, life draining condition. I was overweight…no, obese. I was obese. I was unhealthy, unhappy, and just wading through life one meal at a time. I had tried everything…literally… I did all of the recommended diets and exercise, all of the scary/crazy fads (you remember those Hollywood liquid diets?! HA!), diet pills, doctor assisted weight loss programs, everything. I would lose some weight, or a lot of weight, only to quickly gain it back plus some. Which surgery did you have? And why was it right for you?  I chose to have the Sleeve Gastrectomy or Gastric Sleeve. I needed to lose about 88% of my total body weight and it was absolutely the perfect surgery for me! The sleeve is less invasive than the bypass and it doesn’t require the maintenance of the Lap Band. What happened during your first consult? I knew that LCWLS was a Bariatric Center of Excellence, so I had very high expectations & those expectations were met; the entire experience was exceptional. I didn’t have any trouble at all scheduling my consult or recurring appointments; I live outside of Louisiana now and they fit my visits in when I could come to town. I felt like they understood exactly what I was going through and that they were as excited about the prospects of my success as I was. Do you feel that the decision you made was worth it? YES, YES, A MILLION TIMES YES…Faced with the same situation, I would make the same decision time and time again. It is the BEST thing I have ever or will ever do for myself. I highly recommend LCWLS and Dr. Sartor to anyone and everyone who will listen: family, friends, neighbors, co-workers, strangers, anyone…
