Get Started On the Path to Living Lighter
I always had confidence in everyone around me, now it is amazing the amount of self-confidence I have in me. As a 47-year-old mother of two, AS credits The Chicago Center for Bariatric Surgery at Vanguard Westlake Hospital for helping her lose weight and learn how to eat healthy. AS lost nearly half her body weight—almost 150 pounds—and went from a size 26 to a size 6. She made the decision to get bariatric surgery after her mother died of pancreatic cancer. She knew she needed to get healthy so she could be there for her own daughters. "Before weight-loss surgery, I was on blood pressure medication, three medications for diabetes, pain medication for arthritis in my knees and I used a CPAP machine for sleep apnea," she says. "Within 30 days of having surgery, I was off all my medications."
