I have fought my weight problem for more than 10 years and took off pounds many times but would always gain them back. Then 2 years ago my nephew had the lapband surgery and has done very well and thought it would be good for me. At first I thought, No way, would I go that route but the more I researched the procedure the more I thought why not, dieting hasn’t worked. So I went to several different Bariatric Doctors and attended their seminars and just couldn’t decide who to go with. Then a friend told me about Dr. Curry at Journeylite. I called and registered for his seminar and I knew that night that I wanted to have Dr. Curry and his team do my surgery. The pre-surgery process was fairly simple. The girls in the office were all very helpful in arranging everything for me and each appointment was easy to set up and everyone I have met at Journeylite has been so kind and helpful. Prior to surgery I weighed 215. I went on a 2 week medi fast and liquid fast (per doctor’s orders) and dropped 15 1bs. Weighed 200 the morning of surgery. Since my surgery 1 week ago I have lost another 3 1bs. and my blood pressure is down to 117 over 74. I am looking forward to seeing what my cholesterol reading is when I see my PCP. I think I have done very well. Not been sick at my stomach at all this last week and only taken meds for 2 days after surgery. I look forward to getting on the scales each morning now that the number is decreasing and not gaining. I am so thankful to Dr. Curry and his whole Journeylite team that made this all possible for me. I know, now that I have the Realize band in place that I can contiune to drop the weight and feel better about the future with my husband, kids and my 18 month old granddaughter. My only regret is that I didn’t do it sooner. I know a lot of women aren’t comfortable with other folks knowing they have had Bariatric surgery to lose weight but I am not one of them. I tell everyone about my experience because I know how hearing about this procedure has changed my life and if I can influence others, by sharing my story with them then just maybe they will take the step as I did and have the surgery for themselves. Thanks again to everyone at Journeylite…. Darlene Townsley
