SUCCESS STORIES

My name is Rebecca Garoutte. I am a 41 year old wife, mother, and full time student. My battle with obesity began in my early twenties. The weight just kept coming on faster and faster. Since my youngest is nearing his 17th birthday, I was feeling a bit ridiculous saying it was still "baby weight". Not to mention that nearly 100 pounds of excess weight is a bit much for that!

My name is David and Doctor Lopez did my Lap Band procedure in October of 2005. At the time of my operation I weighed 344.9 pounds. As of July of 2006 I weigh 299.3 pounds for a total loss of 45.6 pounds. Ha Ha, I am under that magical 300 number and still going. Read on...



My name is Iris, my starting weight was 343. This was after losing a bit on my own. After four children and years of emotional eating I weighed well over 350 lbs. easy. I never got an acurate weight as my chart was always marked 350 and a few ++ (plus) signs followed by exclamation points. After the hubby was ordered to go to Iraq..... It was important to me to be around for the kids in case he never made it back home. I could not do it at my current weight. Read on...



Hi. My name is Shericka Slack and I am 30 years old. To date (08/08/06), I have lost a total of 95 pounds, 9 months after having the lap band surgery.

My name is Lisa, I am a 38 year old mother of 4. I am have also been a registered nurse for almost 15 years. I chose the lapband because it was the safest most logical way to assist me in my battle with obesity. Since I reached my early thirties and after the birth of my youngest child it seemed impossible to lose weight and each year I gained about 5-10 pounds. With my active life style between my family and working full time I tended to binge eat or make unhealthy choices. Read on...



My name is Billie Kay, I am a 63 year old, sleep lab manager who got very little physical exercise partially due to my job, age and being extremely obese (see before photo on the right). I know my weight was a hazard to my health. I had tried just about every weight reduction method including Weight Watchers, etc. I always lost some weight each time only to regain it and more.

My name is Tiffany, and I am a 36-year-old mother of two, a city councilwoman, a college instructor, and a medical transcriptionist. I have been overweight for at least half of my life. Read on...
