In May 2016, I decided to get the ReShape Weight Loss Balloon Procedure. Almost five months later, I can say it’s the best thing I have ever done for myself. For years, I was overweight, and mad at myself for letting my body and health deteriorate. I hated going shopping because I had to buy clothing in a size 14 and was getting close to a size 16. I looked horrible and felt even worse. I had pain in my knees, feet, and back, as I was carrying around almost an extra 50 pounds. I would try to eat healthy, but failed miserably. And I couldn’t exercise because of the pain I was experiencing due to my weight.
Then I saw an advertisement on social media for ReShape. I was intrigued because the procedure was non-surgical, meaning I wouldn’t have to get part of my stomach removed–something I was definitely not interested in. My husband and I attended a group session where they discussed the procedure in detail. At first, I was hesitant, but scheduled the procedure a week later. The first few days were rough, but the following week, I was exercising and I couldn’t eat as much as I did in the past, which was a huge positive for me! I saw the weight falling off and I was elated.
Now I walk two to three miles on my lunch break, eat healthy, and work out at the gym. I no longer have pain in my knees, feet or back. I wake up every morning and look forward to a new day, no longer depressed or hating myself for being so heavy. I am 63, and have never felt or looked better! I’ve lost 40 pounds, and still have about 10-13 pounds before I reach my goal, but I know I can do it. I have the willpower and confidence, thanks to ReShape. And I know what it takes to achieve my weight loss goals and, more importantly, how to maintain them.
