Our 'Personal' Family Story with the Disease of Obesity

We have a problem in our society. Obesity and those who suffer from this disease are the last group our society is yet to make some type of effort to protect. Even the medical community has done a poor job.


We are on a mission to change this.


People are not obese. There are only those who suffer from obesity.

Obesity it not your identity. Yet, maybe for many years, it’s felt like it.


‘Yeah… but Dr. Patching, you have never personally suffered from obesity.’

If you say this because my BMI has never reflected this…Well, you would be right.

If you say this because I haven’t ever felt trapped in my own body…Well, you would be right again.

But, you would be wrong, if you said I have not been affected by obesity.

I lost one of the closest members of my family to complications of this disease.

Yet, I run one of the longest standing Bariatric Practices in Northern California.

How is that possible you ask?


Well, not all of us learn a very important thing in time…

You are worth the fight.

You are worth all that it takes to regain your life.

You are worth every single person’s time and energy around you to regain control of your life.

But, the decision is only yours, it's solely up to you.

It belongs to no one else.  


Our family lost a brother, an uncle, a son, a father… about 30 years early.

Because he didn’t ever internalize one simple fact:

He was worth it.

Beach Sunset_edited.jpg

With morbid obesity on average women lose 8-10 years of their life, and men about 10-12

The people around you need you. But only the you that takes care of you, first.

This story is a reminder that we aren’t guaranteed anything.

He didn’t only lose his life, but everyone else lost one of the most incredible men we have ever known.

Someone that lit up a room just by his presence.

Someone that made you feel like you were the only thing in the world that mattered when having a conversation.

Someone that exuded joy, humor, and impossible amounts of laughter to even the most unenjoyable situations.


Notice the qualities.

All of them selfless in nature.

We never want to group people together, however if we have learned one huge commonality of everyone that comes through our door… Selflessness

They have put everyone else’s needs before their own.


Bronnie Wares book: Regrets of the dying makes an important point the Bariatric Community could stand to benefit from hearing.

Guess what the number one regret of the dying is:

“I wish I’d had the courage to live a life true to myself, not the life others expected of me.”

Self-care is not about self-sacrifice.

It’s giving only after you have given to yourself.

We only get one life, one time around, and it goes by fast.

And you deserve to live the life you have always dreamed of.

If you let us, we will join you on your journey in reclaiming the YOU that burns deep within.

Every challenge you have overcome up until this point is a testament to the person you are.

You are worth the effort; you are worth the fight.

Simply put…

You are worth it.

-Dr. Steve Patching

Doctor Using Digital Tablet

Are you still hesitant about Bariatric Care?

We feel this Harvard Doctor sums it up the best...


"I see Patients with a BMI of 50, and invariably I will say, 'You're a candidate for everything - medication, diet, exercise and surgery.' And many tell me, 'Don't talk to me about surgery. I don't want it.' They don't want a surgical solution to what society has told them is a failure of willpower," she said.

"We don't torture people who have heart disease: 'Oh, it's because you ate all that fast food.' We don't torture people with diabetes: 'Oh, it's because you ate all that cake.' We tell them they have a disease, and we treat it. Obesity is a disease, too, yet we torture people with obesity by telling them it's their fault."
