LAP-BAND Patient Amanda, lost 149 lbs
"I tried every weight-loss program that you can imagine but I'd always gain the weight back -plus more. After years of yo-yo dieting, I topped the scales at 304 lbs and had given up on losing weight. I had the chance to have gastric bypass surgery free of charge, but as a surgical nurse I had seen the risks associated with it and realized it was not right for me.

Then I learned about the LAP-BAND System and knew I had a better option.  Since my surgery, I've lost 150 lbs and have gone from a size 30 to a size 14. I get excited when old friends tell me I don't look like the same person.  I have been completely transformed."

LAP-BAND Patient Dan, lost 170 lbs
"When I was growing up, an active lifestyle kept me in shape. But after graduation, other priorities took over my time and the weight piled on.  I tried all the fad diets, most with no success. Then I learned about the LAP-BAND System, the only FDA-approved weight-loss surgery. I've hit my goal and am down to 170 lbs!

The LAP-BAND is easy to live with and is there to help me maintain my weight loss for the rest of my life.  As a bonus, all the activities I had missed out on for more than 20 years are once again within my reach.  Now there is nothing I can't experience with my children. The LAP-BAND has given my life back."

LAP-BAND Patient Tess, lost 161 lbs
"The stigma that comes with being overweight in our society is very sad but very real; I felt that stigma every day. But my self image wasn't the only thing suffering - so was my health.  I chose the LAP-BAND System because it was a tool that would help me to eat well and take better care of myself.  The LAP-BAND lets me feel satisfied with a small amount of food and keeps me full between meals; it's that simple.

Today, I've lost 161 pounds, my health problems are gone, and I'm even training for a marathon! My social life and self confidence have improved, and I no longer feel restricted by my weight. I am now the woman I was made to be!"
