All my life, or so it seems, I have been overweight. As far back as I can remember, I was called “fatty-fatty two by four,” and it hurt. And I have never forgotten about it. While I struggled with my weight, life wasn’t fun for me. It was tiring. It was boring. It was depressing and negative.
I’d tried every diet out there that I could afford. I was tired of spending countless dollars on stuff that just didn’t work. Then I heard about LAP-BAND®. It seemed ideal for me. I went to one Dr. Malley’s seminars, and I was very impressed. He seemed so genuine and easy to talk to, and I could tell he cared about what kind of problems I was having.
Since having the surgery in 2006, I have lost almost 100 pounds, and life couldn’t be better! I run and play with my daughter and really enjoy life. I’m a much happier and healthier person now. I had my surgery on Valentine’s Day, so I would never forget that I loved myself and believed in myself. I’m still the same person I was before the surgery … just skinnier.
And now I’m called “Thin Mint!”
