“My weight loss journey has been a lifelong journey since I was 12 years old. I’ve tried several diets and have been to gyms with limited results. For several years — 10 or so — I knew that I wanted to do weight loss surgery but never had insurance that would allow it. When I was hired by Major Aerospace Company in 2012, I realized that this company’s insurance plans would allow me to begin my journey to a healthy, fulfilling life; it was just a matter of doing it. The final hurdle for me to overcome and then to pursue this was when a co-worker came up to me and offered me a deal, which proved that other people, those not in my close inner circle, showed true concern for my health.
“After that moment, I made the decision to find out the details of surgery. As my highest recorded weight was 406 pounds and I was wearing size 5XL shirts and size 54/56 pants, I reached a point in my life that now was the time. I didn’t want to wait until I was diabetic (I was pre-diabetic already) or have other comorbidities that would prevent me from being able to enjoy my retirement or even make it to retirement. Dr. Srikanth was brutally honest about that, and I personally needed to hear it.
“Since my surgery, I have lost 135+ pounds and couldn't be happier with my results at the one-year mark. I hope that through my journey, I help inspire others to seek out weight loss surgery. It was the right thing at the right time for me. You will know when it is right for you, but I wouldn’t wait until you are unable to enjoy life.”
