One day I watched myself on our Google nest camera. Usually, I don't watch the video clips when I get the notifications because I know what I'm going to see. This time I watched it and I burst into tears. Who was this person limping away with her coat unzipped because it didn't fit anymore? I had the classic arthritic knee "waddle" my mother used to have. She died at 56 weighing 330 lb.

I knew I had to do something to change the course I was on but I was too ashamed to ask for help. After running into a woman I used to work with I was taken aback by her transformation. What was more noticeable than her weight loss was her smile. Behind that smile was a woman that took control of her health and decided to rewrite her story. Then she told me about Dr Baranov.

When I first met Dr Baranov he gave it to me straight and I loved that. He told me everything I needed to do to be successful and gave me the tools to start this journey. To say that everyone in his office is amazing is an understatement. I felt like I was in kind, caring and capable hands the entire process. Thank you Dr. Baranov for helping me re-write my story too. I went in the office a patient and I've left a new person
