Meet Holly

Weight Lost: 53 Lbs
Excess Weight Loss: 50%
Procedure: Gastric Sleeve

My name is Holly. I had the sleeve done eight months ago and have lost 54 pounds and feel great.

If you're thinking about bariatric surgery. You got to do it. You got to do it to change your health. I did it. I wish I had waited as long as I did. I feel great. You'll feel great. I would recommend nobody else than Dr. Ganta for bariatric surgery.

I decided to have the sleeve done because I have yo-yo dieted all my life and I just got tired of it. And granted, I didn't have a hundred pounds to lose. I was slowly gaining weight and I didn't want to get up to over 200 again.

So I decided if I keep doing what I'm doing, I'm going to keep getting what I'm getting. I decided to take a different route - and it has proven to be successful.

When I finally decided to have surgery and called to make an appointment, reception was very helpful. The whole staff made the whole process smooth. It was very intimidating to me, but they were able to take that weight off my shoulders.

I decided to go with Dr. Ganta for surgery because I have cared for some of his patients at the hospital and I've seen I just see how the patients do with the recovery process. I've been impressed by how well they do and I see how he interacts with the patients with his compassion and caring.

Since surgery my energy level is through the roof. I'm moving faster. I'm doing a whole lot more. It’s a lot more fun going shopping these days. And I'm actually going to go on the boat this summer and not cry about it because I don't feel bad about my body. I feel good about my body. I’m looking forward to doing that and more baseball, more fun time with my 13 year old. Before the surgery I wasn't interacting that much with him. Of course he loves my husband and they are best buds. But he's more he's warming up to me. And now we go out and we do more, taking him to practice and he enjoys that. (But I won't play catch with him because he throws too hard!). We went to the Waco tournament not too long ago and I actually went out and interacted with the other parents which I usually wouldn't do in the past. I just go prefer to go and wait in the room and be by myself and Tracy and Brandon would go down and hang with the other parents and the families. And now I do it.

So if you're thinking about bariatric surgery. You got to do it. You got to do it to change your health. I did it. I wish I had waited as long as I did. I feel great. You'll feel great. I would recommend nobody else than Dr. Ganta for bariatric surgery.
