Kristina describes how her life was transformed and how she has more energy since the LAP-BAND® procedure.
Oh, it’s changed dramatically. Before I would have to get like two number 2s from McDonald’s to feel full, and now I am good with a half of a small salad with no dressing and I feel full. I finally get that feeling of fullness.
Now that I had the LAP-BAND® procedure three months ago, my life has changed dramatically. I have a lot more energy. I feel a lot more confidence in myself. I am not on any prescription medications except for my vitamins. You know, I could walk more than two miles. I could actually even run for ten minutes, and my goal weight is going to be 105 pounds to be healthy.
Yes, my life has changed a lot. I have, like I said, a lot more energy to go. I can go places with the kids, like yesterday we went to the zoo, and I could walk around the whole zoo without having to sit down and catch my breath, and so it’s been great for me.
