My name is David and Doctor Lopez did my Lap Band procedure in October of 2005.

I weigh 299.3 pounds for a total loss of 45.6 pounds. Ha Ha, I am under

By the way, I have found nothing that I cannot eat that I ate prior to
the surgery. I just eat less. I can even have chocolate. Whoopeeeeee!!!
Now, I do control my indulgence of it.
