Profession – #Write28Days – Day 17

Have you ever met someone and knew immediately that they are doing exactly what they were meant to do? That is how I felt when I met Dr. Cheregi. He and his team have been amazingly supportive in my weight-loss journey.

Each person on my team at Advanced Bariatrics is perfectly suited to their profession.

  • Dr. John Cheregi – Surgeon
  • Kiersten Kern – Surgical Assistant (& answerer of endless questions)
  • Julie Cohen – Dietician
  • Amy Paulus – Support Group Facilitator

After a recent appointment at Advanced Bariatrics, Kiersten asked if she could share the picture below on social media. I immediately said yes because I feel that God brought me through this experience so that I can help others.

Barb has lost 111 lbs in 6 months after #sleevegastrectomy with #teamcheregi @advbariatrics She is a #rockstar 🌟 We are so proud of her & all her success!

Want to know how you can achieve your #weightlossgoals too? #TuneIn this Wednesday @6:00 pm for our #FacebookLive #bariatricbabes #strongwomen #healthywomen #heartdiseaseawareness #weightlosssurgery #bariatricsurgery #slv #rny #mondaymotivation

I still have work to do. It has not been easy by any stretch of the imagination but it is oh so worth it.


  1. Congratulations, Barb! Your journey—though it is ongoing—is quite the accomplishment. It’s amazing what happens when we team up with the right people. It’s not just them and it’s not just you, it’s both working together. Sounds like, “Christ in you, the hope of glory.” (Colossians 1:27). BTW, I competed my first marathon at age 50–with a little help from my friends.

    God Bless.
