Lost 120 pounds

As a patient advocate, Gladys is not only a weight-loss surgery patient, but she also works at DayOne Health, providing ongoing education, support, and encouragement to all of our new and current patients.

Being overweight was always an issue with me and also the rest of my family. We tried all diets — Weight Watchers, Slim-Fast and Jenny Craig, even Phen-Phen. Would lose some pounds, but gained twice the amount back again.

Jodee's Lap-Band Success Storyjodees-weight-loss

Lost 98 pounds

All my life I never had to watch my weight until I attended college. From then on, I would allow myself to gain 20 pounds, because I knew I could diet and get it off. Well, 20 pounds became 30, and 30 pounds became 40. I soon became a compulsive and professional dieter.

Lost 121 pounds

The turning point for me was when I was about to turn 40. I didn't want to be fat at 40. I decided it was time to make a change and started the process toward pursuing weight-loss surgery. I decided on the LAP-BAND procedure because it was adjustable and it wasn't invasive.

Jenifer's Lap-Band Success Storyjenifer-weight-loss

Lost 65 pounds

I had the surgery after 20 years of going to doctors, nutritionists, or whoever would give me the “popular” stomach diagnosis of the moment. Professionals would take me off of certain food because everything irritated me. Yet, I was still always holding on to so much weight and feeling miserable all of the time. I was poked and prodded and I had had ENOUGH!!

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. That’s when I began researching different weight-loss options and surgery centers.

Lost 50 pounds

Less than a year ago I had LAP-BAND surgery and I have lost almost 50 pounds. The LAP-BAND has really worked as a tool for me in controlling my eating and hunger — I'm still able to enjoy the foods that I loved before, but now my eyes are more in sync with my stomach.
