I lost 32 Pounds!
On 03/01/2013 same day as my ultrasound, I made a decision to see Dr. Berg. While I was in the waiting room (Dr. Berg’s office), my specialist called and diagnosed the pain, which was due to Gallstones and an inflamed gallbladder. He then strongly recommended a cholecystectomy (removal of my gallbladder). Dr. Berg was very compassionate and patiently answered all of my questions and concerns that evening.
On 03/01/2013, weighing at 191 lbs, I started my health journey with unbearable pain and all. At this time, I was not concerned about my weight. I started eating to heal my body, something that I’ve always known conceptually, but really did not believe in my heart. I now know and believe that food heals the body. I saw things in my body changes that I had taken for granted. For example, my skin looked better and softer and yes, I received the energy that I did not have before. I also developed a craving for apples instead of sugary sweets and I really enjoy eating salads. At the end of my care, my pain had gone from a 10+ to 1-2 pain. I definitely have not experienced heart burn or reflux thus far. Though I am not sure if the gallstones are still there, I have learned that I can manage the pain by eating healthy foods and learning to live in my “New Healthy”.
On 08/02/2013, my final weigh in, I had lost a total of 32 lbs. I started at 191 lbs. and ended at 159 lbs. Thank you for all of your help and support when I thought, at times, would not subside. Yes, I feel and look fabulous! Thanks again for helping me get back to my “New Healthy.”
