“I am absolutely tickled with what I’ve done for myself and where I am now.” This comes from Gina, a patient of Dr. Cirangle’s who had a adjustable gastric band 2 years ago this month. Gina has lost 111 pounds and is maintaining her weight with a healthy diet and regular exercise. When she first thought about weight loss surgery, she admits she still didn’t think this would work and thought nothing would help. She had struggled with weight for so long and nothing had helped, no diets had lasted. “Ever since I got the band, it has changed my life. I like myself again,” she says. She is committed and determined to a new and healthy life.
Gina is back to teaching swim lessons after she never thought she’d do it again. Now she is happily back to work, in the pool, and with more energy than ever. “I’m conscious about everything that goes into my body. I keep my intake of sugars very low, though I do allow myself a very small treat once and a while. Along with teaching in the pool, I exercise at the gym at least 3 days a week as well as swimming a ½ mile and walking 1 mile every morning. If I am up 2 pounds on the scale, I work a little harder that week at the gym.”
Inspiring and supporting others has also been part of Gina’s weight loss journey. Attending support groups, encouraging others, and attending her follow up appointments with Dr. Cirangle have all aided in Gina’s success. Thank you for sharing with us, Gina!
