In Cherie’s Words:

“Hi! My name is Cherie. Friendly, fun, fabulous, size 22…that was me at 258 lbs. I was happy, successful and secure with who I was and where I was going. I had a life plan, but my health was holding me back. I had diabetes, high blood pressure and sleep apnea. It was difficult to keep up with my husband and grandchildren. I found myself saying, “No, I can’t do that” daily because of my physical condition. My internist recommended weight loss surgery.

I made a call to C4WLS and schedule my consultation. On May 22, 2012 I chose to have the Proximal Gastric Bypass surgery and it changed my life. Thanks to Dr. Srikanth and the staff at C4WLS, I have a new prospective on life. Now I am a size 2/4 and 140 lbs.,* I no longer have diabetes, high blood pressure and sleep apnea.

I have discovered that one of the most important things you can do for yourself is take charge of your life. Be the change. C4WLS is a lifetime friend—the after care and support they give is unmatchable. It’s not just about having the surgery, it’s about changing your life, and C4WLS is my choice. I’m still friendly, funny, a better me. Life is fabulous!” – Cherie
