“I was overweight my whole life, and had tried every diet out there. The more I tried to control myself and my eating habits, the more control I seemed to lose over my weight.
Getting the gastric sleeve was the best decision I ever made. The Oliak Center provided me with the knowledge and tools to succeed, and was always a source of support. After surgery, it suddenly became so very clear to me what it felt like to be normal, and to feel satisfied – something I had never felt my entire life. Finally, I feel like the person I am on the inside matches the person on the outside. Finally, I have found control over my weight and my health.”
