I was miserable because of my weight. I felt tired, sick and sluggish all the time. I had high blood pressure and acid reflux, and I was borderline diabetic. When I looked at myself in the mirror, I felt like my inner spirit was being sucked out of me.
After having the LAP-BAND® System surgery in 2005, I have lost more than 100 lbs. and my BMI has dropped from 50 to 32. I wouldn’t say this has “changed” me, but it has brought back the person I used to be. I have rediscovered my passion for shopping, because I can walk and go up and down stairs with ease. I have the energy and excitement to get out of the house and do things. Now when I look in the mirror, I see the same active and playful person I feel inside. And most importantly, I have my inner spirit back!
Thank you, Dr. Malley!
