Hi, I’m Lesley; I’ve had a weight problem since I was eight years old. As I went through school the kids would tease me and I would gain more weight. I would do diets and lose some weight, but when I stopped the diets I would gain the weight back and then some. As an adult I still had weight problems. I knew weight issues ran in my family, both my mom and sister had the gastric bypass done years ago. I had heard about the Lap Band from my sister and I had thought about it for a while. Some time later my mom had a heart attack, that made me get off my butt and do some thing about my weight. I had the lapband surgery on June 17, 2009. My highest weight was 286 pounds. It has been over a year and I am 82 pounds lighter. Thanks to Dr Cohen and his team I have a new life. I wish I would have done this sooner.
Thank you Dr Cohen for the new life.

Since my surgery in October of 2007, I have lost a total amount of 58 pounds! [Read more]Tagged: LAP-BAND Results | Comments: one response Weight Loss Results by Staff
