My Story

I was athletic when I was young and the minute I stopped participating in sports I gained weight. I was not healthy at all. I was diabetic, I had high blood pressure and high cholesterol. When I went to Six Flags, that was the most embarrassing day of my life. I remember getting on the roller coaster with my son and I went to fasten the seat belt and all eyes was on me and the seat belt would not fasten. 

I knew at that moment I had to do something different. I have lost over 135 pounds. I went from a size 26 to a size 8. My life with the Lap Band is amazing. I’m no longer taking medications. Since I have lost the weight, I went back to Six Flags, fasten my seat belt and riding the ride with no problem!
