Meet Stephanie

I can’t explain how bizarre it is to see myself from just 6 months ago to now. This has not been an easy road, but it was the best possible path for me. On August 31, 2020, I had the Sleeve Gastrectomy with Dr. Pullatt through the MUSC Metabolic & Bariatric Surgery Program.  I am now almost 100 pounds down and lots more muscles to grow!

It was the best decision ever! I have not had any complications or problems from the surgery. I exercise consistently with two different trainers. I focus on strength training with a small amount of cardio. Immediately following bariatric surgery, I started my exercise habit by walking a mile a day. In fact, the morning after I had surgery, I walked a mile in the hospital, and I slowly but surely got to the point where I was comfortable with weight training.

I am beyond happy with my choice to have surgery and the way that it has changed my lifestyle and mindset!
