Surgeon Testimonial

Julie Leverton, M.D.
I had my consultation with Dr. Leverton in June. It was a long drive from where we live, but well worth it. Their office A/C was broken that day but we sweated it out! Shawntae, her assistant, was a riot! She made my husband and I feel right at home. Dr. Leverton was awesome. She was surprised that I knew the word 'co-morbidities'. LOL! She is so cute! She was surprised that we are coming so far to have the surgery done in Wylie, but I know I have chosen the best surgeon for the job! I can't wait for my turn to finally be on 'the other side' and be losing this weight forever! There are 3 reasons why I feel that Dr. Leverton and the BTC are the best and they are: 1) She is a woman and can identify with women in general. 2) She is very meticulous in her surgery scars and they are barely visible. 3) Having it done at the BTC is better than a hospital because you don't have to deal with sick patients who have diseases and infections, and the whole atmosphere is healthier! 4) Having it done at the BTC is better because EVERYTHING is catered to the obese patient! EVERYONE should have their surgery here! LOL!

    I SAID A PRAYER FOR YOU TODAY~*~ I said a prayer for you today And know God must have heard- I felt the answer in my heart Although He spoke no word I didn't ask for wealth or fame, I knew you wouldn't mind, I asked Him to send treasures Of a far more lasting kind, I asked that He'd be near you At the start of each new day, To grant you health and blessings And friends to share your way. I asked for happiness for you In all things great and small, But it was for His loving care I prayed the most of all. (unknown author)FROM MY HEART TO YOU ~*~Hugs~*~

    Robin, I agree totally with your post. People going thru plastic surgery are just as important as people having wls. Its the icing on the cake. I want the same support when I have that as I did with my RNY. Just wanted you to know that I am on your side 100%. Hugs!

A Long Term Post Op's View On Things


posted 2/28/03 12:36 pm
Well, it's 18 months out and I'm not nearly as dedicated to this as I once was, I have to admit. I've been following the 'mostly protein' diet the majority of this last 18 months, and I need a break! I'm down to 165 now and I still have 25 pounds or so yet to go. I try and stay between 165 and 170 and start eating properly again if I get to 170. I should be down to 140 or less by now, but this cheating 'here and there' has cost me! That's ok though because this is something I'm going to have to do for the rest of my life and I'm not in any hurry! I'll try to be much better and get back to exercising and eating right as the weather gets warm again! However, it feels SOOO good to be this small again! I can jog and exercise like a thin person and NOTHING tastes as good as being this thin feels! Life is so blessed by God! Thank you DAD!
