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. I owe my success partially to a great doctor and nurse team (Dr Lopez and Ginger) and from maintaining healthy eating habits and lots of water intake. I also walk for 30 minutes three to four times a week. I feel having the lap band surgery was the best option for me. I have learned to eat in moderation and feel healthier. Some of us feel the Lap Band is suppose to lose the weight for us. However, the Band in only a tool in helping reduce the amount of food we eat. Everything else is up to you. The reactions that I receive from friends and family are ooh's, ahh's and wow's!! So far I am down 5 pants sizes. I started out at a size 28 and I am down to a size 18. Several years gave passed since I even thought about shopping for a size 18. If I had it all to do again, I would most definitely do it!!!! By doing this, I have added more years onto my life!!!!
