Hello Julia,

"The copy of your book that you sent me has been a hit with those who have read it

and they are talking it up (and sharing it with others in the bariatric community too)!

Take care and I hope 2015 is a banner year for your book!" Liz Jobmann

"Your book is outstanding. I was very impressed with the medical information, guality, accuracy and the overall writing and prose. You clearly put a great deal of work, research, and effort into writing the book. I think it would be a very good resource for our patients considering gastric bypass surgery and will I recommend it to our bariatric surgery team for consideration for their patients."

I recently gave a potential bariatric surgery patient your blog site and recommended that she obtain your book and take a good look at it."

My best,

Almond J. Drake III , MD

Julia Holloman has done her homework. She takes readers on an inspiring and informative journey while highlighting the guidelines and lifestyle changes required to successfully maintain weight loss. This personable, easy-to-read account from a patient’s perspective is sure to help others enjoy the success that Julia has achieved. I recommend this book, Out of Obesity and into the Promised Land, to healthcare providers, patients, and anyone considering bariatric surgery."

notes of encouragement

 “I am going through all the process steps to prepare for bariatric surgery and I am afraid of complications. I have been doing lots of research and I wanted to THANK YOU for your blog. I have not had a chance to read it all, yet— but I sure will.  

You have made me feel much better about the decision. Please don't stop blogging. I don't know if you realize how much it means to someone like me. I am going to start one soon because maybe I can also help someone one day.”                                                             —Leslie

I hope that by sharing mine I can help someone else find the courage and motivation to make life-changing decisions as well.

Good luck on your book! I wish you much success!"

Check out Tracy's site: “Heart on My Sleeve” includes a series of YouTube videos and Tracy’s blog, with the aim of helping to educate individuals considering weight loss surgery options. Tracy has chosen the ‘sleeve gastrectomy’ procedure..."
