Frank’s Weight Loss Story
My name is Frank and I have been struggling with obesity for the majority of my adult life. I’d have small victories by losing weight, but always seemed to put it back on and then some. Exercise can only do so much and it took me a long time to accept the real problem at hand–my lack of willpower when it came to food. I let my voracious appetite define me and there was never a meal that I didn’t like.
Thanks to my “addiction” I developed sleep apnea and various joint issues from carrying around all that extra weight.I was digging myself into an early grave until November of 2015 when I decided to have Dr. Abkin perform gastric sleeve surgery.
I lost 120 lbs and went from 3XL clothing to XL in nine months. My jeans went from a 46″ to 32″ waist. I no longer use my CPAP machine and can perform exercises that I never thought possible.
Having surgery was the best decision I ever made and I regret not doing it sooner.
