Pam: LAP-BAND Surgery

LAP-BAND Surgery: September 2008
Weight Loss: 100lbs

I’m pretty sure I’ve tried just about every diet known to man. From Weight Watchers to Atkins, none of them had any lasting results. In June 2007, I decided enough was enough. I was so tired of being unhappy and depressed. I didn’t even want to leave my house! I was so out of shape and I felt so unhealthy. I had seen the lap band commercials on TV and started researching it. I made an appointment with Dr. Bagnato and I knew that the lap band system was right for me. The process went very smoothly and I had my surgery September 20, 2007.
It’s been a year since my surgery and I have lost 100 lbs! I still have a little way to go, but I couldn’t be more pleased with my results. A year ago, I got winded just walking to my car. Today, I am training for a 5K! I never thought I would be a runner and it feels incredible! The band helped me get my life back. I feel happier and healthier than I have felt in 10 years!
