Weight Loss Surgery is Not the Only Answer

Weight Loss Surgery is Not the Only Answer

We all know losing weight is not easy –– but it was particularly hard for Cynthia, who suffered from feelings of hopelessness due to her weight and as her health started becoming an issue as well, she knew something had to give.

In her own words: “The older I got, the harder it was for me to lose weight. Eventually, I couldn't lose at all even with starving myself, I was stuck.” 

After countless diets and medical appointments, the word “surgery” started to pop up more and more. Although the doctors seemed to think this was an option, she knew that this was not what she wanted.

Gastric bypass and other weight loss surgeries are major, life-changing procedures that can also pose significant risks and complications. Acute complications are ones that occur shortly after surgery (include bleeding, pain, and blood clots) and chronic issues are ones that arise or persist six months after the date of surgery.

At her highest weight, she felt desperate but did not want surgery and then she heard about a new way to lose weight…GOLO! This discovery changed everything for her, a sustainable way of losing weight without risking her life. “I was watching TV, and a GOLO commercial came on and I thought to give it a try for a month. If I didn’t see any progress, I would just quit. I began on November 1, 2016, with a goal to lose 75 lbs.”

She set the challenge for herself and read all the material. “I was so committed because I wanted to do something. I was desperate and surprisingly the GOLO program saved my life.”

Cynthia lost 18 pounds the first 18 days — yes, one pound per day. Since then she has lost 100 pounds total, finding the GOLO lifestyle to be effortless. “I’m eating more food now than ever before; I never feel deprived, and I prepare food from fresh, tasty ingredients. I learned to use food for sustenance rather than gratification.”

Now she is healthy and can enjoy things that we usually take for granted, like taking long walks, being active, enjoying her work as a teacher, and playing with her grandson. She is proud of her success, and her family is proud too. She also feels more confident than ever before. During an interview she told us, “I feel vibrant, attractive, younger, relevant, it just makes me feel like I'm part of what's happening, you know? I can wear a bathing suit and skinny jeans. It is great.”
