After nearly 15 years of packing around and extra 120lbs, I decided that it was time to do something about it that would not involve perpetual dieting.
Due to a very busy schedule I used to eat once daily in the evenings and even though my daily calorie intake was under 1500 calories my body did not like to ingest these all in one go and as a result I continued to gain weight.

I knew I needed to change my habits but was so accustomed to my routine that I was not easily willing to make those changes. The deciding factor for me to do something about my situation was when I got on an airplane and had only 1/2" of belt left before I would need to request an extension. I was so mortified that I started researching about the lap band online. When I spoke to the people at Weight Loss Agents they told me about the Gastric Sleeve process which made a lot of sense to me. I knew that if I had it done that I would have no alternative but to eat frequently and small and that's all I have done.

I actually ate more calories (good ones)than I ever had in the past and nearly 100lbs of weight painlessly dropped off in only 7 months. I have been able to easily maintain my weight for over one and a half years, and I even indulge in chocolate almost daily. No more diets for me ever! Yeh!

I have to say that the attention and care I received at the Jerusalem Clinic was exceptional. I really appreciated their attention to sanitation and hygiene as well as the terrific pain medication that made the whole post surgery process very comfortable.
The staff was excellent and kind. I have only 2 tiny scars which are fading fast.

I would highly recommend the Jerusalem clinic to anyone struggling with unwanted weight.
I am finally in control of my life and food is now my friend not my enemy.
