Many of our patients are excited to share their weight loss journeys. They want new patients to benefit from their experiences and know that there are struggles and victories along the way.
Kyle M. started the Deaconess Weight Loss program in October of 2014. His early adoption of the program guidelines and activities, allowed him to have significant success well before his surgery took place. Since surgery, he continues to be an active participant and has seen remarkable success with his weight loss journey!
"June 16, 2017 marked 18 months since my gastric bypass. Yesterday, I stepped on the scale and when I realized I finally was in the normal BMI range, I almost cried. I never remember a time when I was as healthy as I am today. I praise God for the astonishing transformation I have been through. I have definitely been dealt challenges over the months; however, they have just proven to me how strong I am. I never imagined I could or would lose 171 lbs. I can finally enjoy life and not watch it pass me by. I have added years to my life and decreased my chances of dying from obesity related diseases. I AM STRONG!! This is not the end, only the start to a whole new chapter in my life." – M. Beadles

“On March 17, 2015 I had my gastric bypass surgery and in six months I have lost 92 pounds. I am able to do things now I had only dreamed of doing. I am no longer morbidly obese and my cholesterol is back to normal. I would recommend Deaconess Weight Loss Solutions to anyone who is tired of struggling with being overweight. Losing weight has helped me become the best version of myself and I would do it all again in a heartbeat!" – A. Kinney
“I had no issues before, during or after [surgery]. It truly was picture perfect. I credit that to my own readiness and confidence in my surgical team lead by Dr Haughn in the Deaconess group, absolutely wonderful group…. At this point, I am about seven months post-op and have lost a total of 189 lbs. High weight was 451 lbs., current weight is 262 lbs. with my personal goal set at 250 lbs. In closing, I will tell you that the decision to have the gastric sleeve was one of the best decisions of my life!!!!” K. Musgrove
