I am 54 years old. I was in a place in my life where I was tired of being tired. I had to find a successful way to lose weight. With the health issues I had going on, I wasn't sure if I was going to have a heart attack and die. Both my parents passed at an early age. I decided to live and not die.
Thank you, Dr. Williams, for helping me start that journey called life. I had the Gastric Sleeve Surgery. Best life decision I’ve ever made. In November, four years ago, I weighed 330 pounds. This is when I started my weight loss journey. I had joined the gym, hired a personal trainer, and also had tried what seems like every diet available. I would lose a pound or so but no success. Then I was introduced to Dr. Williams. Before surgery, my shirt size was 3X, Pant size 48, Shoe size 9.5.
Currently, My shirt size is X-Small to Small, Pant size 31, Shoe size 8. Once I started to lose the weight I started to tone up at the gym. When I was 330 pounds trying to work out, it just was not working. Now, I spend hours in the gym toning up my muscles. I now work out three to five days week. I have more energy now than I’ve ever had before in life.
Also, before surgery, my family doctor had diagnosed me with high blood pressure, sleep apnea, and pre-diabetes. My family advised me to lose weight and said these health issues would go away. I can gladly say, I now weigh between 165 -170 and those health issues are gone. No high blood pressure, no sleep apnea and no pre-diabetes.
I am in better health at 54 years old than when I was in my thirties. I strongly recommend Dr. Williams and his staff. He was so encouraging throughout the process. This Gastric Sleeve Surgery not only helped me to become a healthy person but also improved my sex life and built self-esteem. I decided to help others. I am now a certified Master Fitness Trainer. I have run the 10K Peachtree Road Race for the last three years now. Thank you again, Dr. Williams and your spectacular, incredible staff who helped me change my life to a healthy life.

6 months after Laparoscopic Sleeve Gastrectomy
My gastric bypass gave me a new life. In May of 2011 I was 307lbs, 5’2 with close to 60% body fat, and dress size 26-28. I had my RNY gastric bypass July 19th of 2011 and today 7/31/2012 I way 163.2lbs and where size ten pants. There is not a single part of my life that was not improved by losing this weight. I look better, I have improved self esteem, I am not on diabetes door, I exercise 5 – 6 day as week, have more energy then I know what to do with, my knee and lower back pain is gone and my sleep apnea had dramatically improved. I literally feel like a new person. I would recommend Dr. Williams to anyone who is serious about getting their weight under control. My only regret is not doing it sooner.
