Helen & Daniella's Story
“My weight loss journey has been life-changing!”
For as long as I could remember, I had been overweight. I graduated from the “husky” section to the “big and tall” shops before I was even out of high school. As I got older, diets came and went; some were moderately successful, some were just expensive hobbies, and all were short-lived.
I entered my thirties a confident, young professional who believed that there was plenty of time to concentrate on getting healthy. However, I was really in the midst of a health crisis that I continued to ignore. I was 357 lbs. with a body mass index (BMI) of 46, high blood pressure, and a family history of heart disease, diabetes, and cancer. It was a trip to the E.R. with chest pain that made me realize I needed to take action!
My primary care physician recommended the Center for Surgical Weight Loss at Hahnemann. The team at Hahnemann provided the support and guidance I needed to change my life and improve my health.
It has been more than two years since surgery, and I have lost 165 lbs. My blood pressure is under control without medication, I no longer suffer from sleep apnea, my cholesterol is normal, and the best feeling of all – no more big and tall shops! I could not have done it without the team at Hahnemann!
