I have always struggled with my weight. I was introduced to a weight loss program associated with Dr. LeGrand in 2017. The program required me to complete classes and see a psychologist before qualifying for weight loss surgery, all of which I completed.
After discussing my options with Dr. LeGrand, I decided to have gastric bypass surgery done. I knew that it was going to be hard work. I would have to put in the work with proper nutrition and exercise. I have been very pleased with my results. I lost 138 pounds and feel very blessed.
Keeping the weight off hasn’t been easy. I’ve experienced several setbacks since my surgery and have put weight back on. I know Dr. LeGrand will help me. He and his staff assist in nutrition, exercise and other forms of weight loss counseling besides just surgery. I just hope my story helps someone prepare for their weight loss journey.
