I just want to take a moment and thank everyone at Jerusalem Hospital when I was there on Jan. 7,2013 to have my gastric bypass surgery . Your service was outstanding. And your instructions what to do after surgery was great. I was weighing 267 lbs. and I was starting to have some health issues due to being over weight. I tried loosing the weight on my own and I was able to loose approximately 40 lbs. But no matter what I did I could not get past that 230 mark. Since the surgery I am now down to 170lbs. And at 5ft.10in. I don't look fat and I am not fat. I went from wearing an xxlarge shirt to a small. I went from an 18 and a half inch neck to a 14 and a half inch neck. And from a 42in. waist to a 28 to 30 inch waist. And in fact I can wear little boys shorts size 14/16. The only regret I have about this I wish I would have done it sooner. Anyone can be skinny with this operation. The only question is are you ready for it and are you willing to follow there instructions. Because it will change your life like it has never been changed before. It is nice to be flirted with even though I am married. We all need to hear a word of encouragement, wow you look good, or hi there sexy or you can't be that old you look too good. I now belong to a 24 hour fitness center, it's time to tone this body up. Let me see if I can make some more heads turn. My best advise to those of you who are thinking about doing this, don't let your fears stop you from being who you can be and listen to what your body is trying to tell you after you had your surgery. And most important listen to their instructions. There is no reason you can't be skinny and be a success story like I am. The choice is yours. .
