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. I
was always tired and could never breathe. I was always depressed and
just unhappy. I am also a pastor and If I could not lead my
congregation due to my weight.... who has the issue?
So, I began my research for the most healthy and safe weight loss
procedure. For me, it was the Lap-Band! I won't tell how much I've lost
but I will say that I gone from a tight size 34Wtoa 24W! In less than a
year! The question has always been asked..." Would you do it all
again?". My answer is...." In a heartbeat". The procedure was quick and
my pain was minimal as I am a wuss. I was well informed due to my
research and I could not have had a better surgeon. Dr. Lopez is caring
and is concerned about me. The Lord blessed Him to be a part of my life
and I am thankful for his expertise.
