Hello My Name is Anya Holmes I had Gastric Bypass Surgery January 22, 2013 which is my second birthday.
This is one of the best things I have ever done in my life.
I was a chubby child and my mom brought me up to have very high regards of myself. I was not your typical plus size child or adult. I thought I was just fine the way I was. I was out going, dressed really nice, didn’t have a problem dating and found the man of my dreams, who loved me the way I was!!
I wanted children and was not able to conceive for eight years after marriage and was told it was because my weight. So I lost weight on my own and got pregnant, lost weight and got pregnant again. This time I was unable to keep it off. I developed high blood pressure and arthritis in my knees. I felt like I was 58 instead of 38.
I have children who look up to me and a husband who needs me. I preach to them about being healthy with meals and exercise…what kind of example was I setting for them??? So I decided to make a huge lifestyle change that would be beneficial for my family and most of all ME!!!!
I called Dr. Aframs office and was very impressed by the response that I received over the phone. It made me eager to get the process started. My first meeting was very AWESOME and it was Dr. Afram leading the meeting answering ALL questions asked of him.
I was more than ready to change my life. The office staff led me and encouraged me through the entire life changing experience.
Here I am now 15 months post-surgery 141 pounds lost and counting!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Loving my new life….. I feel like I am in my twenties.
- Starting weight 327lb
- Current weight 186lb
