Weight Loss Success Story Holli Witherington

Describe your life before you had Weight Loss Surgery.

“I honestly led a pretty active life before surgery. I worked full time and ran a yard card business on the side. I traveled often and loved being outdoors. But it was hard too. Plane seats were tight. My plantar fasciitis hurt every night after placing signs. I seemed to sweat and struggle more than most people. My back hurt often and, while I didn’t fully realize it, my energy levels were fairly low.”

How long were you considering Weight Loss Surgery before you came in?

“I made the decision for weight loss surgery quickly. I decided I needed a change. I looked into it in September I believe. I scheduled my first appointment in early October and by the end of November surgery was scheduled. No one thing made me “go for it” that I remember. I just looked around and said it’s time to get healthy!”

What was it like to work with our team?

“I like that I was assigned a full team with WeightWise. Having an advocate, a nurse, a nutritionist, an exercise specialist and a doctor means plenty of resources. You can have as much or as little support as you need. I was in more frequent contact in the pre-surgery stage and the first few months after surgery. I emailed or texted every time I had questions. Months later, I need less support but WeightWise still reaches out to schedule regular follow up appointments.”

Describe your life now, after Weight Loss Surgery.

“Weight loss surgery was hard for me. I had some complications early on and often questioned my decision the first few weeks. After that phase, things have gotten better and better every week. I’ve lost 100 pounds after sleeve surgery from October to July. I’m 20 pounds from my goal weight. I no longer suffer from plantar fasciitis. I don’t have back pain. I have energy for days. It’s so easy to exercise. I’m in clothing sizes I haven’t worn since high school or college. And as silly as it sounds, I love that I can cross my legs easily again!”
