LAP-BAND System - Testimonials  

Years ago I was very depressed about my weight. I remember sitting down on the couch reading the Leader and came across Dr. Ginsburg’s ad for the Lap-Band procedure. I thought to myself, this is probably just like every other diet or diet pill or weight loss program I’ve tried, but what the heck, I’m going to give him a call. I met with Dr. Ginsburg and he was very caring and supportive. He asked me if I had a goal weight in mind and I told him I wanted to get down to 150 lbs and maybe a size 10. At that time I weighed 278 lbs and wore a size 22. I had my Lap-Band done in February 2008 and 11 short months after, I met my goal. Today I have exceeded that goal and have lost a total of 163 lbs and I am wearing a size 2.

Never in my dreams did I see this possible! People would say to me, “Wow, look how skinny you are” or “you look amazing” I really struggled with these compliments because I often felt like I took the easy way out. I have finally realized I did not! I made the decision, I changed my eating habits, I exercised, I turned my life around, all with the “HELP” of the Lap-Band. The Lap-Band was a brave decision that I made and the best one by far! I am blessed to have a new outlook on life. I wake up everyday with a smile on my face knowing that my children have a healthier Mommy. So thank you Dr. Ginsburg and your staff for being so supportive and helping me turn my life around.
