Jessica: LAP-BAND Surgery
I was sick of being fat! The day I realized it was hard for me to tie my shoes I knew I had to do something. I had lost the weight several times with diet pills, working out at least 6 days a week and watching everything I ate. This was a miserable way of life. As soon as I would relax just a little bit, I would gain the weight back plus some.
I had 60-80 lbs that I put on and took off every 2 years. I wanted a permanent control over my weight problem. I wanted to be able to enjoy food without feeling guilty for everything I ate. Cooking is a hobby of mine, but since I had no control I had an eternal struggle on enjoying my hobby or dieting.
Now I am able to enjoy life again. If I go to a birthday party and want a piece of cake. I eat it. While it may be a very small piece, that is all I need to satisfy my craving. Don’t get me wrong. I still watch what I eat and work out but it is so much easier. I have control over my body’s cravings and weight now. This has changed my life. The support the staff gave to me is amazing too. I feel like I have a team of cheerleaders with all the staff and doctor supporting me.
You look gorgeous. I asked Terri what the occasion was in the photo. Congrats on the renewal. You should be so proud. Be sure to stay in touch and again GORGEOUS!!
Jessica you look great and keep up the good work. I had the lap band on 8/23/10 and has lost 32lbs and it feels great. It was one of the best decisions that I ever made in my life to have the lap-band surgery.
Yes, you do look gorgeous. Keep up the good work. I agree, one of the best decisions that I have ever made was to have the lap-band surgery, my husband agrees (he had it the same day that I did) we feel great.
Hello jessica, Girl you look good. You are an inspiration for me. I’ve recently had my lap-band surgery. I can relate to what you said when you stated that you felt that you did’nt have any control. I took control over my life when I decided to have surgery and stayed committed. Now that I’ve had my surgery I’m even more committed. For the firt time in years I feel that I have control. You are an inspiration.
