Your Board of Directors Left to Right: Aimee Watson, Pat MacGregor, Patrina McBride, Nancy Richards
Board Chair, Director/ Media Relations My name is Patrina McBride, I am a 47 year old married Mother of 3 children, and I have struggled with my weight for most of my life. I started my Weight Loss Journey in summer 2009 with a referral from my family doctor to the Guelph Center of Excellence Bariatric Clinic. At that time my highest recorded weight was 441lbs, although I am sure it was higher. I finally got meet Dr. Reed in January 2010, when he agreed to perform the Gastric Bypass RNY. I had surgery April 30th, 2010, which I believed saved my life. I am now at goal of 170 lbs, and have become an advocate for anyone seeking this path to change their lives
Secretary My Name is Nancy Richards, a 47 year old single mother of two young adult children. I was overweight all my life and was always dieting someway. Nothing worked for me until I spoke to a friend who had the Gastric Bypass RNY,, he said it changed his life, and I said it was time to change mine. I went to Ypsilanti, MI in March of 2009 and met the Doctor who saved my life, Dr. Taylor, the surgery was done July 2009. I was told I was selfish to do this at the time I did, but I said for the first time in my life I am going to be selfish and think of only me. Now three years later I am at my goal of 150 lbs. I had reconstructive surgery in December to have the excess skin removed from my stomach and my arm, and I feel great. I am happy to tell anyone my story and proud of the people who go down the same path that so many have chosen.
