Chandra: LAP-BAND Surgery
My name is Chandra and I have had my lap band since 2005. I decided to have Lap Band surgery after I had my child and my weight rose to an all-time high. At this weight I wasn’t able to do all the things I wanted to do with him. I had tried various diets with only short term success, and was always gaining the weight back. Deciding to have Lap Band surgery changed all of this, giving me more energy and confidence and an all-around healthier, happier lifestyle.
I lost 137 lbs. and 90% of my excess body weight and have kept the weight off for over 5 years now. My experience with lap band has not only changed my life but has allowed me to help others on this same journey.
Surgery date: March 18th, 2005
Before weight: 284 BMI: 48
Current weight: 147 BMI: 24
Total weight loss: 137
You look great Chandra! Hope to see you this month.
You look amazing. Congratulations! Isn’t Lap Band just the best thing! Dr. Bagnato did my surgery 8/15/11 and I lost 80 lbs and couldn’t be happier.
You look so good Chandra! Great testimony and encouragement. You look great!
