Lost 60 pounds

I began my LAP-BAND journey on July 8, 2009, and have lost a total of 60 pound since and haven’t looked back. After many years of trying to shed the excess weight on my own without any real success, I decide it was time to do something more.

Melinda’s Lap-Band Success Story

Lost 60 pounds

 

I began my LAP-BAND journey on July 8, 2009. I have lost a total of 60 pound and haven’t looked back since. After many years of trying to shed the excess weight on my own without any real success, I decided it was time to do something more. That’s when I began researching different weight-loss options and surgery centers. With my busy work and school schedule at the time, I knew I needed something less invasive and with a faster recovery time than gastric bypass. After weighing all my options, and with the help of my dietitian at DayOne Health, I finally decided that LAP-BAND surgery would be the best choice in helping me to achieve my weight-loss goals.

My overall experience with DayOne Health has been nothing but positive. The doctors and staff are extremely helpful and are with you every step of the way. Everyone at the facility is friendly and goes out of their way to make sure you feel at ease and comfortable, which I found to be extremely helpful on the day of my surgery.

My personal relationship with food has changed drastically since I’ve had LAP-BAND surgery. I’m no longer using or depending on food to help comfort me when things aren’t going my way or if I have a bad day. I’ve learned to accept and deal with whatever emotions I’m feeling at the time instead of trying to cover them up or push them down with food. The LAP-BAND has also taught me portion control and how to “eat to live, not live to eat.” I can honestly say that choosing LAP-BAND as my weight-loss option was one of the best decisions I’ve made in my life thus far.
