It’s like getting a second chance in life to be there for my husband and children.
Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) September 13, 2011
Ron and Tammie Sayles have done something extraordinary together - they’ve lost a combined total of nearly 200 pounds with the Lap-Band procedure. “I went from 288 pounds to 197, and Ron lost an even hundred pounds, going from 303 to his present weight of 203 pounds,“ says Tammie.
“My co-worker had her Lap-Band done after attending a 1-800-GET-THIN seminar, and I watched her going through the process and losing weight,” says Tammie. “I was inspired by her success and realized that if my co-worker could do it, so could I,” Tammie says. “I discussed the Lap-Band with my husband Ron and convinced him to do it with me.”
“My family is heavy, so I’ve always been overweight,” says Tammie. “My weight really spun out of control when I was 27 and had my first daughter,” she says. “My daughter had some medical complications and I used food to cope with the stress. Ron also was steadily gaining weight because he wasn’t eating a healthy diet.”
Tammie says that she tried several well-known diet programs but she did not achieve the permanent results that she desired. “I also began to exercise regularly and would tone up, but not lose much weight. “Because of my weight I was at risk for diabetes and was becoming very concerned about my health,” she says.
“The personal service I received after calling 1-800-GET-THIN was great,” Tammie says. “ They stayed in contact with Ron and I, and the weight-loss and lifestyle classes that they required were very helpful.”
“I’m thankful for all the medical screening that we received because before having our Lap-Bands done, the doctors found ulcers in Ron’s esophagus that could have become cancerous. He was placed on medication, and the ulcers healed. I feel that they saved Ron’s life,” Tammie says. Since having our procedures Ron and I have renewed intimacy and I feel like a whole new person. We have more energy than ever. My only regret is not having the Lap-Band earlier. It’s like getting a second chance in life to be there for my husband and children.”
