Paul Cirangle (COE)
DDr. Cirangle has a very matter of fact approach. WLS is a tool and if you do things right it will be the best thing you did for yourself. He doesn't seem to be too warm and fuzzy but very genuine in his belief that WLS is a tool that can benefit me. The office staff has been great, steering me in the right direction.

Weight has always been a problem for me - even when I was thin it was a problem. I was always an overweight child but I took comfort that there was another girl in my class that was fat! I remember filling bags with penny candy and eating Hostess cupcakes before dinner. I was always willing to run to the store for my mom before dinner because I could sneak a snack. The first time I lost weight was in college and to this day I don't remember how I did it. I was a size 12 when I got married but quickly gained 50 pounds and had to move the weight over to the 200 slot on the scale!! I was able to lose 30 pounds with the help of diet pills then got pregnant. For the next 6 years I battled with about 40 pounds. After my second child was born I lost my weight and went to work for a weight loss company - like an alocoholic working in a bar. I had so many eating issues but never really dealt with them. I would gain and lose 10 - 15 pounds but never really learned how to maintain my weight. In the last 10 years my weight has been creeping and leaping until even I have to acknowledge that I need help. So on July 10 I will be having a vertical gastrectomy. I know there will be some hard times but mostly I'm looking forward to all the things I will be able to do without all the extra weight.
