Before my band surgery I was so tired and felt worthless. Now I am more active than ever and it feels great. I actually love myself more. I promised myself that I would never be that big again. Dr. Schmitt said that I was doing great. Dr. Schmitt is a very caring doctor as well as he is wonderful. He is very informative. I owe my new life to him.

Dr. Schmitt, Yesterday I came to the office for my 3rd fill. I didn't get to talk to you, as you were really busy, but I wanted to give you my most heart-felt thanks for setting me free. In the five months since my surgery, I have lost 67lbs. It absolutely amazes me. I remember at the seminars and in all the reading I did about the lap band before the surgery it was said over and over, "the band is not a miracle, but a tool to be used to help aid in weight loss". My tool... it is a miracle. It has everything to do with the weight loss and feeling better physically. But, more than that, it is such a liberating feeling to know that I can lose this weight and that it will not come back. I've thought of many ways to describe the way I feel now and the only word that fits it properly is liberated.

When I sit in your office and watch all of the people waiting to see you or Dr. Miles, so that they may also partake on this journey... I cannot help but smile and think that soon they, too, will know what it feels like to no longer be a slave to the one thing that they dislike the most about themselves, yet have been unsuccessful, thus far, in changing. Thank you. You have saved my life.

Dr Schmitt gave me back my life!!! This time last year I was 100 lbs heavier and miserable. I couldn’t walk more than 2 blocks without back pain and exhaustion. I had tried just about every diet plan, from the expensive Physician Weight Loss plan to Weight Watchers only to lose about 15 pounds and then regain 30. Soon I was 254 lbs with an insatiable appetite. The lap-band surgery is truly amazing and I am now back to my ideal weight. People that haven’t seen me in a long time don’t even recognize me!! I can’t say enough good things about the lap-band, the only regret I have is that I didn’t find Dr Schmitt earlier!!!! To those of you that are considering lap-band surgery… HAVE IT DONE, IT’S GREAT!!
