"February 18, 2009 . . . this date altered my life forever. This was the date of my surgery and the date that my new outlook on life began. Since my surgery I have lost 140 pounds and I feel amazing. I do need to tell you that it is definitely not a fix all. This is a tool that was given to me to assist with my weight loss journey. I can tell you that I personally have not had any issues with my surgery, but I strictly follow the Surgical Teams recommendations. I also must tell you that it is not the surgery alone that has brought these results; it is also a lifestyle change. I am now very focused on eating healthy, exercising and having an overall wellness balance. I need to tell you I feel . . . AWESOME! If you are willing to make this commitment in your life, this tool will be the start of something extraordinary!"
