Like most 30 something year old moms my mornings are filled with breakfast, spills, school uniforms, car pool and buses….having a minute to myself is impossible. All of this followed by a day of meetings and work only to get home, cook dinner, get the kids homework done, extra curricular activities and the list goes on!!!! I wanted so bad to be more healthy and energetic for my kids and the best way to do that is with a healthier lifestyle so like many I tried my best over and over to get to the gym as often as possible……which is impossible when you are taking care of so many other people.
I turned to Dr. Lavin for information on the gastric sleeve. I was not “grossly obese” and I thought this surgery wasn’t for someone like me but I was so wrong. This surgery has been life changing for me. I am full of energy and have more fun running errands and taking care of my kids more than I ever have – not to mention beach trips and getting on and off rides at Disney World have become more exciting and easier.
I would now doubt recommend this to anyone who struggles with maintaining a healthy lifestyle. This is not just a surgery for those very overweight – it’s a surgery for moms like me who just can’t do it all but want to so bad. The recovery time is so minimal – even moms can do it!!! My journey has just began with a weight loss of 24 pounds in 5 weeks and I cannot wait to see what the future holds.
