After years of dieting — where I'd take 20 pounds off just to regain 30 pounds — I decided it was time for a change. My daughter was leaving for college and I knew I wanted to be around to see her continue to grow into an adult. So I chose to have LAP-BAND surgery with Dr. Ben Tribble at Palmetto Health Baptist Weight Management Center.

The surgery literally changed my life. In the seven months since my surgery I've lost 80 pounds and 60 inches. I actually look forward to shopping now. I can always find something that fits.
