Bobbi Jean Busse – Weight Loss Journey

Bobbi Jean Busse – Weight Loss Journey


(background music) – My name is Bobbi Jean Busse. I’m 33 and I’m from Sullivan. I work at Fidelity Communications.
I am the Traffic and Billing Coordinator. My weight gain started 12 years
ago after I had my daughter. I had to have a Cesarean and so I could not get the
weight off from having the Cesarean. So I started the exercising,
I started the eating better, I, I had actually went on a
diet pill. I have tried other numerous weight loss solutions
and they just did not work for me. I have tried all of the
little gimmicks, you know the Jenny Craig, the It Works,
the Keto, the high protein They just did not work for me. You know you could exercise
all day and all night you know I have always been able to lose
15 pounds and 15 pounds was that magic number. Doctor Michalik you know
explained everything up front we had plenty of pre-appointments. You had your nutrition classes and It took probably 6 months worth
of classes and appointments before I actually had my surgery. Every month, I would have to
meet with the nutritionist We would have to go over my
meal plans and it got to where I was writing down everything I was eating She was telling me “okay this is good” “let’s switch it up this way” “more water, less water” And so after meeting with her,
I’d go see Doctor Michalik At first the weight, weight lost was very quick and then I would plateau. I remember telling Doctor Michalik “I’m not going to lose anymore,
I’ve been here for a week or two” and he’s like “just give
it time, just give it time” So ultimately within the
first year, I lost right at 120 Pounds. The main thing is your protein.
For myself they want me to get about 60 grams of protein
a day. So lots of eggs, lots of cheese, turkey Pretty much my diet I won’t say that I don’t
have sweets, I’ll be honest But when I do it might be a
bite or two and then I’m done. So just mainly your exercise,
getting plenty of water and getting that protein in. I can now walk, I can now run
without being out of breath I don’t have to use the CPAP machine I’m off medications I am not really afraid to do
anything because I know people are not looking at my weight now. So it’s just kinda given
me a peace of mind. I can stand for a long period of time. I am not taking 3 hour naps everyday I don’t require you know
15, 16 hours of sleep Now I can go for about 6, 7
hours of sleep and I’m good to go all day. So that definitely has a big impact. Definitely, I actually
work with a few ladies a couple of men also that has
questioned me and questioned me and they have actually
had the surgery done too. I’d probably say 6 people or
so just from my experience that has went ahead and
scheduled appointments with Doctor Michalik and have
successfully had the surgery done also. Without the surgery, I do not
believe I would have gotten my results with any other procedure
or medicines or gimmicks that are out there (background music continues)
