This week, we celebrate the successful weight loss of Felicity Philipson. Here’s her story:

WLSA Weight Loss Then and Now Felicity Philipson

What weight loss Procedure did you have?

Gastric Sleeve on 7/5/21

What was your starting weight/current weight?


Why did you want to have your procedure?

Had major health issues heart, high blood pressure, diabetes, sleep apnea and a cardiologist telling me I would be lucky to live 10 years 

How were you feeling in your “THEN” photos?

I hated everything about that girl who held me back

How are you feeling NOW?

I am now at peace with myself and I really like myself now I actually feel beautiful

What has been your most memorable Non-Scale Victory?

Lol, the non-scale was to order a size 8 pair of scrubs for work instead of a 22

What was your experience like with the WLSA team?

The team at WLSA were amazing. Having regular appointments with Leslie, really helped me. I believe Leslie gave me a completely different perspective on how to manage the changes people had towards me due to weight loss. And the ability not to listen to the inner negative thoughts that could have sabotaged my success. Not only did I lose a lot of weight physically but emotionally. And with that, I had pure growth. Thank you, Leslie.

Is there anything else you’d like to include in your Story?

If anyone is sitting on the fence as I previously did for 2 years prior to having surgery, I’m here if you want to reach out or you’re having a bad day. I may not have all the answers but I can give you solid advice like I received from the team or things I learned along the way. But what I definitely can give you is a positive mind and with a positive mind and attitude and with this amazing team at WLSA you can achieve anything you set your mind to. 

Thank you WLSA you helped me get the life I can truly live and deserve forever grateful.
