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!!!!
