Weight Loss: 88 lbs
At 5’6″ and 243 lbs, I knew I was not winning the battle with my weight. I had dieted for years and tried every kind of diet pill on the market. I would lose 20 pounds or so and put the weight right back on after I stopped the pills. Three years after my lap band I am maintaining at 155 pounds! I use my lap band as a tool to help me with self control over food. It has helped me learn to eat smaller portions and to recognize when I don’t feel hungry. Not only have I lost weight and kept it off, my self esteem has improved dramatically. I would have never imagined myself being able to run a long distance! Now I have completed two marathons! I am so grateful for my lap band experience.
