In September 2016, Paula told us she was ready for a change. At 5’3 her weight peaked at 262 pounds and had a series of weight related health issues. Paula gave dieting and exercise multiple tries, hoping to lose the weight. Since her LAP-BAND placement, Paula has achieved a weight loss of 57 pounds! Her commitment and dedication has given her more time with her family, more energy, and more reasons to smile!
- What has been your biggest change since lap band surgery?
My energy level! I have so much more energy now.
- What has been your biggest non-scale victory? (less medications, not needing a seat-belt extender on planes, more energy, etc.)
Playing with my grandkids more. I no longer feel like I’m missing out on enjoying them at this age.
- What advice would you give someone thinking about lap band surgery
DO IT! But seriously, this was the best change I ever made and if you follow the rules, to me, it wasn’t that hard.
