Michael had a #gastricbypass done 5 years ago, and he lost over 200 pounds. He now works out 5 days a week, and you can see a transformation from each picture to the next! Love the #deadpool shirt, because this is definitely an example of maximum effort. He says " before surgery, I was unable to enjoy theme park rides with my son. Now we go to Disney and Universal Studios every year!" Congrats on being our #transformationtuesday post!

It's #mealprepsunday and we got this healthy recipe from Tina, our office physician assistant who likes to plan out healthy meals a week at a time! She bought 1 lb ground beef, 1 green pepper, 1 zucchini, 2 handfuls of mushrooms, and one tablespoon of olive oil and some black pepper. Sauté it in a pan, and then add 8 oz of the meat/veggie mix with half of an avocado. Use a salad mix with some almond butter turmeric dressing, and you're done! A pinch of salt for flavor if you wish. Low carb, high protein, and healthy fats all in one.
Our bariatric team has experienced dietitians, physician assistants, nurse practitioners and more to help our patients succeed! Call us at 317-582-8810 for more information.

Sharon had a #lapband before and was having some problems with it, so she had the #gastricbypass done a year and a half ago. She says things are going much better! She wrote us: " I can now ride horses again, and go on Long hikes. Going up and down stairs is a breeze. My ballroom dancing has improved 100%. I spin faster and barely sweat. My shopping in the regular sizes makes me really happy." Congrats on doing an amazing job, Sharon! We're proud of you and love to hear about these changes in your life.

Happy National Women Physician's Day! Today, February 3rd marks the birthday of Elizabeth Blackwell, the first woman to graduate from an American medical school. She was a British woman born in 1821 and graduated from medical school in New York. We would like to honor our women physicians around the world, including two of our own at Meridian - Dr. Inman and Dr. Cacucci. They are highly skilled surgeons that we are proud to have with us!

Here's a different #facetofacefriday theme! Dr. Chris Crawford is making the best of the cold snap in the US! Ironically, it's much warmer in the national forest in the Rockies of Montana than it has been in Indiana! Skiing down from 11,000 feet ⛷️will get your blood pumping, and so will digging out your brother's half-buried snowmobile. Great #exercise though. Have a great weekend!
Ayris had a #gastricbypass one year ago and has done very well! She has noticed a big change in her ability to run, which she says she can do now. Keep up the good work and happy #transformationtuesday today!

Why does bariatric surgery work? There are two main reasons. The first is that the human body is very good at gaining weight and staying at a constant weight, meaning that it will try very hard to resist weight loss. Diet and exercise are great options, but for 95% of people who are obese, their body will prevent them from losing the weight and then keeping it off. Second, we think it is extremely important to change someone's diet. We don't want people to go "on a diet." We want them to change their eating habits to do something healthy for the rest of their life.

In one year, Kristie has done a great job after having #bariatricsurgery here at Meridian. She has done very well, and she says one of the cool things she can do now is fit into amusement park rides. Congrats on being our #transformationtuesday success!
