Before & After

Waleska

Her patience, guidance, availability, and willingness to go the extra mile really helped me reach a better version of myself.

When I first started this journey I was at my highest weight ever, almost 200 lbs, in a small frame of 5’1. As a nurse I knew all the complications obesity causes in your body. I see it on a daily basis, and I started to feel the consequences. My insulin and my triglycerides were high, I was having achy feet and hands, especially after my long 12-hour shifts. I was always tired, stressed, and depressed. It made me feel so bad talking to patients about their health and habits when I was a mess myself. I wanted to lose weight before my 50th birthday. I’m always taking care of others, I now want to take care of myself.

I did some research, contemplating the idea of gastric surgery, but I was very scared. As a nurse, I knew all the permanent consequences gastric surgery causes. Dr. Jenny was very patient with me. We looked into several alternatives, until we found a good one for me. We started with nutrition changes, increase in my daily activities, and medications to help me control my cravings. Medications were declined by my insurance, but she worked with me until the insurance approved. It is not easy; everyday is a struggle, but I really wanted to reach my goal of 160 by my 50th birthday.

My 50th birthday came and I can say that I not only reached my goal, I went a little further. I now weight 140 lbs. I still want to lose more weight and possibly reach the 130s. I am so grateful to have found Dr. Jenny. Her patience, guidance, availability, and willingness to go the extra mile really helped me reach a better version of myself.

I would have never thought it would be possible to lose 88 lbs without surgery!

She (Dr. Jenny) is a very caring and professional doctor for her patients.
