3 months strong! Currently 30 pounds down, Rachel continues to embrace the LAP-BAND lifestyle and now shares a little bit of her experience. Keep up with Rachel‘s LAP-BAND life as she shares her contagious smile, weight loss progress and healthy food choices!
- What has been your biggest change since lap band surgery?
My biggest change has been my energy levels!! I don’t feel sluggish anymore, I feel ready to take on the world each day! I feel so strong and motivated! The saying “You are what you eat” has never been more true to me. Changing my eating habits and lifestyle to healthy foods and portions has made all the difference in my life!
- What has been your biggest non-scale victory? (less medications, not needing a seat-belt extender on planes, more energy, etc.)
My biggest non scale victory(s) has been my jeans. I used to have to lay down on the bed to get them up and I don’t have to anymore! I went from a size 24 to a 20 in just 6 weeks after surgery! Still moving down with the inches! I’m also off my acid reflux medicine! I’m ready to get in that plane seatbelt on vacation and fit comfortably!
- What advice would you give someone thinking about lap band surgery
My advice for someone thinking about LapBand surgery would be that I understand all surgeries are scary but you need to think long term for your health. Think about how much better you will feel. Think about all the things you will be able to do that you can’t do now. And being overweight is so hard on your body. Be good to your ‘band and your ‘band will be good to you! Don’t do it for anyone else but YOURSELF! You can take control of your new healthy lifestyle and live a long happy life!
