Gastric Sleeve with Dr. Wynn in Delaware
Lost 126 lbs

“For years I had been battling with my weight, due to some health complications. My highest weight was 363 lbs. when I finally realized that I could not do this on my own and had to get help. When I started my weight loss journey I was 354 lbs. After meeting Dr. Wynn and going through the process to get the Gastric Sleeve, I have successfully lost 126 pounds. It is very important to remember that the surgery is a tool, but you must practice portion control, institute an exercise program and be committed to taking your life back.”

I can honestly say that now, I really do enjoy my life!”

Lost 176 lbs

“In 2001 I weighed over 350 pounds. My life had become a struggle. It was difficult to move around. I had sleep apnea and suffered from several other obesity related conditions. I had gastric bypass in and have maintained a weight loss of 170 pounds. My life is very different now that I no longer carry the weight of an additional person on my back. My feed and ankles don’t hurt, I can fit comfortably in an airplane seat and I look forward to activities I used to avoid. Even though my surgery was over 8 years ago, I still receive continuing support from everyone at CHRIAS. They are fabulous!”

Gastric bypass with Dr. Irgau in Delaware
Lost 117 lbs

“I had gastric bypass surgery for several reasons. It started when I had back surgery in 2003 and could no longer exercise as much as I had. Then I was told that my stomach wasn’t emptying properly, then I was diagnosed with GERD. Most of all I could no longer tie my shoes or have quality family time with my wife and daughters because I was in so much pain. I tried Jenny Craig and Weight Watchers but nothing worked. In 2008 I started my weight loss surgery journey. I could not have done this without the help of everyone at CHRIAS.”

I struggled with my weight since I was a teenager. Always going up and down, joining clubs/gyms, weight watchers, etc. I finally decided to have Lap Band done because I started to develop health problems (high blood pressure, pre-diabetes, back and leg aches) not to mention that weight kept going up. I felt that the Lap Band was better a chance because it was not a permanent change to the body and it would provide portion control, which I felt I desperately needed. It was the best choice I ever made. My heaviest weight pre-surgery was 242 lb and now I’m down to 140 lbs. I’ve maintained my loss for about 3 years now. Dr. Peters and staff are fantastic. They genuinely want you to succeed. They are there to provide you support during your journey. Now I enjoy life, feel great, no longer have any health problems, can actually fit on amusement rides, and it’s really fun going to buy clothes from regular stores and they fit!

Lost 100 lbs

I had been overweight most of my life. I had lost weight several times before only to always gain it all back (plus some extra). I had my weight loss surgery in August 2007 and have lost more than 100 pounds and have kept it off. I am more active than I have ever been and actually enjoy exercising now. Weight loss surgery is the tool that helped me lose the weight and more importantly helping me keep it off.
