    Hi Jewel,
    I can see by your example that your a very obedient patient. Your attitude, your weightloss results & devotion to make this your new lifestyle
    show how dedicated you are. You have described Brooke to a T. She is very encouraging as well as thorough in explaining step by step the correct
    way to eat. She has a positive personality much like you do. Thanks for the truth and the encouragement in making a decision to not stay as I am now. Just accepting that being obese was all I could do while waiting on my diabetic disease and other weight related consequences to rob me of quality of life. Now I have hope and a second chance to change direction for my health and well being. I just hope I can work up the determination to
    consistently follow Brooke & Dr Ben-Meir's rules to be a healthy weight lifelong. I will keep you infformed of my progress. Thank You Jewel for being you!

    Jewel, I am now going to Dr Ben-Meir at his recently opened office in Willoughby Hills on Chardon Rd. When I went to St Vincents I had Catie as my dietician but here at this new office I have Brook. She is nurse practionist and a dietician. Can you tell me who your dietician was at St Vincent's? I am not sure I like how Brook does my diet. I am still pre-op on 6 mth med diet. She wants me to count calories and limit fats to lower calories. Next step will be another food component like carbs,proteins or fiber. But each month she wants me to work on one of these. Mayby after I get going it will be easier to track. She is probably preparing me for the post-op diet. Please tell me who your dietician was and how she worked out your pre-surgery diet. BTW You look great!

    Hi Jewel, Thanks for checking in. I am so happy I had this done. Dr. Ben is the best. The more I read on this forum the more I realize he is really a top surgeon. It's why I chose him after all and I could have gone to anybody. I am 39 lbs down and almost 2.5 months out. I was able to drink and eat without pain right off the bat. I have had no problems throughout my entire journey so far. I get a little nausea here and there, especially after drinking water but nothing bad. It was a learning curve with bite sizes and chewing but I got myself figured out now. I eat for the most part whatever I want, I have never been a junk food person, my body tells me when I'm full and I stop. Love it. Hope all is well with you!
