Ginger F: LAP-BAND Surgery

ginger f weight loss success

My Name is Ginger and I will be celebrating my 40th birthday in June.

My journey to weight loss surgery began due to nothing working anymore and health risk arising. I will say willpower has always been a hard task with me when it comes to weight loss. I had tried Weight Watchers, prescription diet medications & other quick fixes. Many had taken its toll on my body by adding more weight than I started with. I was feeling awful and down! I cried regularly because of the way I was looking and how my clothes were fitting!

I was at the point where the Doctor had me on medication for being a diabetic; it was stated that it was weight induced. I was exhausted- all the time and that was not accepted by a 7 year old little boy. My life completely changed on December 27th, 2010! At my heaviest weigh in at 238 lbs. I feel Dr. Bagnato gave me a second chance at life in many ways. A chance to become the woman I had always dreamed of becoming and today… I LOVE myself.

I love the control I have. I love the strength I’ve gained and I love that mind, body and spirit are all in tune with one another.  I’m happy and healthy today 41/2 years later weighing in at 125 lbs! Not only did God guide me but, he also used me to help others that have been struggling for years! I hope my testimony will encouraged others to proceed with surgery and make them feel even better!
