Kayla’s Success Story
“I hated how I looked and wasn’t comfortable in my own skin. When you’re a certain size, you know all the stores you can’t go to because they don’t have your size. Now I can go to those stores and shopping is more fun. My wardrobe has changed. I experiment with different styles and colors. I try new things. Before, I would walk with my head looking down at my feet. Now I walk around with my head held high and a smile on my face. I’m super proud of myself.”
Frank Gouveia Jr. Success Story
“When I was overweight, I felt like my world was collapsing. I felt like I had no control. I knew if I didn’t do anything, I may not be on this earth in three years. Surgery is a tool you can use. Today, my sleep apnea is gone. And my heart, which was working at only 25 percent capacity before, is now at 90 percent. When I was big, I never smiled or talked to others because I was ashamed of myself. Now I say ‘good morning’ and ‘good afternoon’ and people start talking with me.”
Psalms & Kehau’s Success Story
“We’re skinny for the first time ever!”
After researching their options, Hilo residents Psalms and Kehau decided to have Gastric Bypass Surgery through Queen’s Comprehensive Weight Management Program.
Since their surgeries, the couple’s lives have improved dramatically. Both Psalms and Kehau each lost over 100 pounds, and their previous medical problems—high blood pressure, prediabete, high cholesterol, heel spurs, and gout—are now under control.
Tracy and James’s Success Story
Together this power couple lost over 210 pounds!
When Tracy and James decided to get healthy, they turned to the Queen’s Weight Management Department. “We were looking at our future,” said Tracy. “We wondered, ‘How are we going to take care of each other?’”
After attending an informational session, the pair knew weight loss surgery was right for them. “The doctors spoke to our heads and the patients spoke to our hearts.“
Not only did their bodies change, so did their outlook. “Now, I’m less fearful, more confident and more energetic.”
