Rate This

Hi, and thank you for joining us as together we become a guiding light to EmpowHer women all over the world. I am sure by now you’ve heard that Guiding Light, the longest running story in the history of daytime television, will come to an end on September 18 unless another network picks it up.

But let’s roll the tape back one year ago when 22-year-old Guiding Light actress Caitlin Van Zandt, who plays Ashlee Wolfe, underwent a LAP-BAND procedure, and now she is here on EmpowHer to share with you her progress. Hi, Caitlin!

Caitlin Van Zandt:
Hello, how are you?

I am doing great. Now let’s see, one year ago, you’re now 23, how was the LAP-BAND procedure, and how did it help you lose weight?

Caitlin Van Zandt:
Well, I had tried endlessly with different diet and exercise programs to very little prevail. I would gain back any weight that I had lost, usually plus some, which seems to be the tendency for people that need to lose a 100 pounds or more.
