The CODS team celebrated Women’s Day 2016 with a special Coffee with Muffi – Women’s edition only
CODS celebrated Women’s Day in a very special way this year: By having a special edition of Coffee with Muffi only for their post bariatric surgery patients. This edition of our popular support group was attended by over 60 women who have been part of the CODS family since we started in 2006!
It was inspiring to see these women maintain their weight loss after all these years, which truly goes to show that Bariatric is a long term solution for obesity. It also shows that it is not only surgery selection but also the patients and the Bariatric team’s commitment that goes a long way.
The annual award ceremony which takes place at these meetings was an absolute hit with women. Bagging the “centurion award” for having lost 100 kgs went to the new mommy Maria Koliah. (She had come to CODS as she was unable to conceive given her obesity. 1 year post op, she is a mother of a bouncy baby boy)
The stories we heard at this meet were heart warming and left most of us teary eyed. From Bhavna becoming her husband’s best model to be photographed to Neelam calling Dr. Muffi as God as she was able to run after her kids after she lost 70 kgs!
Our centurion award recipient ended the evening on a high note dedicating the song “I will survive” to all the women who’ve made it through this weight loss journey.
And to all these incredible women, we say what Dr. Muffi said, “Our patients have not only survived but have also excelled.”
