"The Southern Tier Surgical Bariatric Program has provided me with the support and tools necessary for success. I've already lost 65 pounds. No more sleep apnea, less blood pressure medication and I feel great! 40 pounds to my goal!"
"I joined the group 2 yrs ago, started at 358 lbs down to 243 lbs (with 70lbs to go to goal). Tormented all through school, once an adult I tried every diet, weight loss program & exercise equipment on the market. My weight went up & down every year. I watched one family member after another end up with health issues, most stemming from being over weight & not eating right. This tool is the best gift I ever gave myself, a work in progress, a calm in my thoughts, peace in my heart. I hold my head high and have the peace of mind to enjoy this unfolding journey for a healthier body, mind and life. I thank all of you for the support and education in nutrition and exercise."
Since my journey towards lap band surgery began in March I have lost 72 pounds! What a journey it has been; it has been filled with learning, support, and a new beginning when I had my surgery June 21, 2010. I have always been able to lose weight but I have been even better at gaining it back. I look at my lap band as a tool to help me overcome the yo-yoing and to get my life back. This has been made possible with the help of the staff at Southern Tier Surgical and Doctor Tvetenstrand!
"I now weigh less than I did in high school and less than my teenage son. I'm wearing his hand-me-downs clothes. I am very excited about living a longer, healthier life."
