Mike struggled with weight all his life, but didn’t give it much thought until around the time he became a grandfather, when his doctor told him his weight could shorten his life by as much as 10 years. Multiple diets and a personal trainer hadn’t worked, and gastric bypass wasn’t a good option. That’s when he discovered the AspireAssist. It seemed like an option that could really work, without the issues of surgery.
Scheduling his procedure on a Friday, Mike was back at work on Monday. He quickly realized that success required careful chewing, and that was actually another advantage – it made portion sizes smaller because he ate more slowly. Mike lost 107 pounds with the Aspire Assist. Today he regularly exercises, focusing on building muscle mass. Another benefit is that Mike no longer has to take any medications for diabetes or blood pressure. He says, “The biggest change in my life with this weight loss is my ability to play with my granddaughter. I’m so much more mobile than before!”
