Love Love LOVE my sergeon! He is a little "to the point" but that's what I needed to shake me into the reality that this is serious business. He is very good at what he does and if there is a problem he is on top of it to get it fixed asap! He takes every precaution to ensure a safe succesfull surgery. He is very involved with his patients post op and he will get on your butt if your not behaving. His staff are all amazing sweet ladies that remember your name when you come in and make you feel welcome. I would recomend him to anyone who needs that little motivator in your head.

I've been heavy all my life and I always felt like there was no hope of me being skiny so why bother, your doomed to be the biggest person in the room till you die. My dad was given the oppertunity to have a lap band back in 2005 and thats when I first really heard about WLS. However it made me even more depressed to see him (who has always been way bigger than me) dissapear before my eyes, knowing that I will never be able to afford it. Years went by and I got married and had two beautiful boys and gained way more weight than even I could ignore. I had had enoug of being me, I was tired all the time, my body hurt everyday, I couldnt do the things I needed to do, like take play with my kids or run around with them. So me and my husband started looking into WLS and we found Dr Chebli in Seattle, WA. He explained to me that the lapband was not the right option and I am so thankful I listened (just about everyone I know with the band has not kept the weight off) and I made what seemed like the hardest choice in my life to get gasteric bypass. this meant giving up the one thing I could always rely on.. food... my drug of choice. It took all of the 8 months I had till surgery to cope and say goodbye to my old eating ways. I look at my life now (126lbs lost and counting) and cant believe I used to live like that or even look like that.. its bizzare looking at old pictures of me, pictures that I used to think I looked good in. I used to HATE shopping for clothes cause it usually meant that I was getting heavier and my pants/shirts were getting tight. Now its like a rush wondering if I can squeeze into that smaller size! I went from a 24 to a 12(maybe a 10 cause the 12 is getting loose). I thank God everyday for this blessing, with out Him I would not have had the strength nor the courage to do this. He is the one who let this all happen and I couldnt be more grateful!!
