Gloria Aronofsky Patient Testimonial — Bariatric Surgery, Jacksonville, FL


– I walk past the mirror
sometimes and I have to stop and look at myself because
I don’t recognize myself. – [Narrator] Gloria Aronofsky loves to show off her photo album, but four years ago, when
she weighed 374 pounds, she wasn’t doing much of anything. – My grandbaby at that
time was probably about eight years old and she
wanted me to get in the floor and play board games with
her and I couldn’t do that. I couldn’t walk from the
parking lot to my office without being out of breath. I was on blood pressure
medicine, anti-inflammatories, pain pills, and I had just
taken my first shot for diabetes in my stomach and I thought
I was gonna kill me. I thought I was gonna
die; it made me so sick. – [Narrator] The Gloria of today
is a much different person. After gastric bypass surgery, she’s lost more than 220 pounds and her life has really changed. – My oldest daughter calls
me an activities junkie. I have been parasailing. I’ve been kayaking. I’ve been canoeing. I have been zip lining. I’ve been white water rafting, I take my grandbaby to the parks, we stay at the parks
from opening to closing. I’ve been to ice-skating. I have done things in my life,
since I’ve had this surgery, that I have never done,
not even as a teenager, because I’ve been
overweight my whole life. – [Narrator] Gloria has changed her diet and she works out at the
gym as much as she can. – When I start looking at pictures now, it’s like I don’t know that person. It’s like that person existed, but I don’t know that person. And I don’t know how I lived, because I lived such a sedentary life. I went to work, I got off work, I went through the
drive-through, I got my food, I got on the couch, I watched
tv, and I ate fast food and Haagen-Dazs Butter Pecan. – [Narrator] Gloria hopes her
success will inspire others. – If I can help one person–
If I can help one person experience the joy and
live life to the fullness that I have for the past
four years, then I’m happy. (happy, uplifting music)
