33-Yrs-Old & a Much-Needed Body Transformation - Austin, TX

About 5 years ago I was diagnosed with Hashimoto's...

About 5 years ago I was diagnosed with Hashimoto's (Hypothyroid) Disease & have been struggling with weight loss ever since. I've tried every diet (liquid, fruit, gluten-free... even went vegan for a year) & workout routine (weights, cardio, aerobic, etc...) imaginable. No matter what I tried or how much I worked out the weight wouldn't come off - even running 5-8 miles every day in addition to everything else I was doing. I wasn't happy with the way I looked, even more upset that I wasn't seeing any results (inches or pounds), & it was beginning to be a MAJOR issue in my life. I felt like a piece of me was missing & I didn't know how to get it back. I started looking into lipo & was referred to Dr. Chike-Obi for SmartLipo. I was completely nervous & scared going into my consultation because having lipo was something I said I would never do; however, he made me feel comfortable & explained everything perfectly. A few days before my procedure I finally told my husband about it. He didn't want me to do it & tried to talk me out of it, but I didn't back out & it's the best decision I ever made. Dr. Chike-Obi even called me on a Saturday morning to make sure I was doing OK & to answer any additional questions. He made me look like me again before being diagnosed with Hashimoto's (Hypothyroid) Disease. I feel amazing & realize now that the piece of me that I thought was missing was just hidden under about 25 lbs of fat. I'm completely happy, I have my confidence back, I have my body back.... I have my life back! My husband says it's like having a brand new wife & that I'm a completely different person now (the girl he met 7 years ago). I feel amazing in everything & am proud to wear a bikini again. I workout 4-5 times per week (I LOVE going to the gym now) & eat healthy (mostly homemade meals). My husband laughs at how happy I get seeing my results improve every single day. He's a perfectionist & I'm so thankful that I was referred to him! There's not a day that goes by that I don't say a "Thank you!" to Dr. Chike-Obi whether in my head, on a Facebook post, to a friend / family, or someone I just met. I don't think words can ever express how happy I am & how this has completely changed my life (back to where I've always imagined it to be) - Thank you Dr. Chike-Obi (again & many times over)!
