My name is Michelle. I had my weight loss surgery in June of 2009.

I have had a weight problem my whole life. It is really hard when you grow up and your siblings are a lot smaller than you and you are always the heavy one. I really started noticing a lot of weight gain when I was 19. I don't know what did it. I didn't seem to eat a lot. I tried exercise and dieting, but nothing seemed to help. I went to my doctor. He told me that probably within 5 years I would develop diabetes. I couldn't believe I had let myself get so overweight. He suggested I contact Dr. Kureshi.

When I went into his office, Dr. Kureshi was extremely nice. He makes you feel very at ease. He explains everything to you. He makes you feel very comfortable. I knew right then that the surgery was right for me. The day of the surgery I was extremely nervous. I was even crying. Dr. Kureshi put me at ease. When he got there, he told me it would be alright and explained again what was going to happen. He came and checked on me when I woke up. I was up walking around that night and felt pretty comfortable. He came and checked on me again the next day. Within a couple of weeks I had lost around 20 pounds. After the surgery, when I went to Dr. Kureshi's office, he was so happy for me when I had lost weight. He was one of my biggest supporters. I would do it all over again. I have lost almost 130 pounds now and I feel wonderful.
