Cynthia, 44

Adjustable Gastric Banding Procedure
Weight Loss: 135 pounds

“…I’m a much happier person as a result.”

Despite my obesity, I was still an active person. I worked out at the gym 3-4 times a week and enjoyed doing things with my daughter and getting down on the floor to do activities with my 4-year old students. I didn’t worry about how I looked or how people saw me. But a visit to my OB changed that. I was diagnosed with high blood pressure and told I needed to lose 60 pounds. Since the surgery I’m still active, but now even more so. And I’m not invisible to myself anymore. I’m taking my health seriously and I’m a much happier person as a result. People say they can see it in my smile, and that’s a great compliment.
