Ashleigh: LAP-BAND Surgery

Ashleigh Lap Band Surgery

I started gaining weight when I was 10 years old. At 26 years old and 400lbs, it was time for a change. I had tremendous back pain when I was at my heaviest. I couldn’t walk into a store for 10 minutes without my back hurting. My mother convinced me to have the lap-band procedure. It was the best decision I have ever made. I’ve had my band since September of 2012. I have lost a grand total of 140lbs. I still have about 80lbs to go until I reach my goal weight. Ever since my surgery, I make smarter food choices. I am happier than I have ever been in my life right now. My greatest support system is my family and my boyfriend, Lance. I am living proof that the band will change your life. People that have heard my success story (even people I have never met) have actually spoken with the doctor to get more information about the procedure. I’m glad that I am making an influence in other people’s lives as well.
