Lisa's Diary reveals the emotions and day-to-day experiences of a real patient in Fort HealthCare's Bariatric Program.
Since my uniforms are all falling off these days, I went shopping for some new work clothes. It was nice to have such a nice selection in smaller sizes. The larger sizes I used to need cost more and came in a lesser variety. Recently I got my haircut shorter and people at work hardly recognize me! Down over 55 lbs., I feel so much BETTER. I realized that I haven’t held this weight since 1995 when I was in my 30s. I can only imagine how much better I will feel when I drop another 30-50 lbs.
Without LAP-BAND®, I would not have lost this much weight. Like you, I tried for so many (MANY!) years. All of those wonderful support programs that mean well and work for many people – just not for me. I get asked many times if I regret getting the surgery – not a chance! This has been an invaluable tool on my weight-loss journey.
Keep it up,
