Fueled by a desire to get more out of life, Barb did more research and looked into getting a gastric band. “Over the years I’ve spent so much money only to gain the weight back. The cost was worth it for a permanent solution.” After dealing with the trials of failed gastric bypass surgery, she felt that Lap-Band surgery would be safer and would also deal with the real problem. The first doctor she spoke to was hesitant to perform the procedure due to complications caused by the gastric bypass. He recommended she talk to the doctors at the SmartShape Weight Loss Centre. Encouraged by the confidence and enthusiasm of the surgeon at SmartShape, she was ready to commit to a new way of life.
Three years later, Barb has lost 150 pounds and has control over her eating and weight loss. She relies on the band as a tool to help her with her portion control and has really changed her lifestyle. “It’s not a short-term diet; it’s a way of life and living.” Barb gets her band adjusted when necessary and she exercises every day. For the first time in her life, she feels fit and strong. Barb has gone from struggling to climb five stairs to running a 5K!
