Patient Testimonial – Lori Ganim

"Lori Ganim lost 70 pounds over 7 months" with a bariatric surgery before and after photo from MIIS Weight Loss Institute

Before I had weight loss surgery, I was tired all the time. I was overeating, we all love food! I also have a thyroid disorder so I’m on Synthroid. I was always feeling sluggish, tired and I didn’t want to do anything. I had tried every type of diet. I did low carb, I did Keto, I was on phentermine and I just figured this was another option to try to get my portions under control and to get my overall health under control.

I had the gastric sleeve and within 7 months, I am almost 70 pounds down. I’ve definitely learned how to eat better and make better choices. I’m watching my portions and I can move more. I exercise about 5 times a week and actually love doing burpees (which I never used to do before)! I have a lot more energy and just don’t sit still now.

Before, I didn’t really want to be around anyone. I was very self-conscious about my weight and now everyone is just amazed with the difference. It feels great!

I definitely would recommend it, especially to anybody that is struggling and has tried multiple weight loss techniques.

We all think that we cook healthy, but going down this journey, I’ve learned just how unhealthy we do eat. It’s made me realize how to better prepare my food and stay active. I feel awesome!

Everyone was always raving about MIIS Weight Loss and the health system overall. I was new to Florida and started researching online and read about MIIS Weight Loss and all the great reviews they had.

The whole team, Hannah explaining the surgery process, the nutritionist going over all of the nutrition aspects of the plan, Linda, Gretchen, all of them were great. They were very thorough when they explained the surgery and what options I would have. Everyone in this whole practice was great.

It’s the best thing I’ve ever done for myself.
