Victoria shares in her own words.
“I was feeling really down and sick of the size that I was. I had tried every diet out there with no results. I wasn’t happy and hadn’t been happy with myself for a long time. I was looking into this surgery for a while and it got to a point where I just knew I needed to do this for myself. I decided to take the leap and it was the best decision I’ve made.”
How was your experience with Destination Weight Loss?
The experience with Destination Weight Loss was the easiest and smoothest process. There was not a moment where I was left confused about the process. Any questions or concerns I had were addressed and I felt reassured throughout the process. I know I could have used my Super but I selffunded instead.
Right after surgery, I had some problems with reflux but that was only a short term difficulty. The biggest difficulty was definitely the mindset. Actively making healthier life and food choices and feeling hungry was your mind feeling hungry and not your body. There have been many victories after the surgery. One of them being a much healthier relationship with food. Two, you have so much energy. I’ve always enjoyed going for walks and I was able to walk further and further every single week and there was just this strong feeling of pride every single time where I was able to push myself and not be held back by the weight I was at before. And lastly, confidence. I had a lot of self esteem issues prior to the surgery and I did not like the way I looked. It initially started out with the jeans feeling loose and it was an amazing feeling. Just kept going and going and now I’m half the clothing size I was before and I couldn’t be happier with myself.
I was one of the people sitting at home on the fence about the surgery. All I can say is that this is life changing. You are doing it for yourself and it definitely won’t be something you regret. It’s absolutely not an easy journey but it will be so worth it. I truly believed it helped me both physically and mentally, and I’ve never felt this good in my life.
