Let’s show some BWLW lost to Latoya. She lost 72 pounds with LapBand surgery. Here is what she shared with us:
I love that we are here motivating one another, I wanted to share my story!! I have lost 72lbs. My motivation is my son. I made the decision to become a healthier me, so that I may watch him grow up!! On January 28, 2013, I received the LapBand Surgery. To date, I still replace a meal with a protein shake, usually breakfast and I workout at least 5 days per week. I do not eat fried foods, candy or fast foods, nor do I drink soda. The last time I had soda or junk food was in December. I made the decision to have the surgery when my doctor threatened to put me on meds. I did not want that. My 4 yr old son Preston is my heart and my motivation! Getting the band only limits how much I can eat, what I intake is all on me!! Additionally, I use myfitnesspal as a calorie tracker!
