What are you waiting for?

Updated: Sep 3, 2020

It's time to hop on the technology train. Destination: staying on track. No matter where you are in your weight loss journey, whether you are looking at weight loss surgery procedures or several years pos-op, maintaining a healthy lifestyle will present challenges. However, utilizing technology platforms to help people lose weight, exercise weight, and even drink enough water, can simplify or lessen these challenges and motivate you to stay on the right track.

Using technology as a tool for exercising

The inspiration for this post came from one of our patients, Chris, who loves using different apps and electronics to keep him on track to achieve his weight loss goals.

When you’ve lost over 35 pounds in just over two months after having bariatric surgery, you’re doing something right. Below is his information:

Surgery date: 4-1-19

Total weight loss: 127 lbs.

Starting weight: 428 lbs.

Current weight as of August 2019: 301 lbs.

Height: 5’10”

Comorbidity: sleep apnea

Chris's Bariatric Story

Chris before Surgery

Chris had been thinking of having weight loss surgery for a while. With being inactive combined with a fattening diet, Chris couldn’t justify living that lifestyle, nevermind keep up with his girlfriend. Chris felt as though he was not just embarrassing himself, but his girlfriend as well. After meeting Dr. Korman and deciding to undergo the gastric sleeve procedure, Chris turned his life around. Here is an overview of his lifestyle now:

Physical Activity: walks for 30 minutes every day, 1 mile and change


Breakfast: high protein shake

Lunch: cheese, lean protein turkey

Dinner: low carb version of family cooked meal

Snack: piece of cheese, hummus
