Charlie lost 81 pounds with ReShape®*
A lifetime of dieting had taken its toll not only on Charlie’s body but his spirit. “Prior to the ReShape weight loss procedure, I would try diet and exercise, and I could always manage to lose 15-20 pounds. Then I would always gain it back, plus 5 or 10 more, so I would get discouraged. I was unhappy and just kept getting bigger and bigger.”
Charlie knew he had to make a drastic lifestyle change before it was too late. He chose the ReShape intragrastic balloon because of the comprehensive dual balloon technology, 12 months of one-on-one coaching, and successful results. “Before the balloon, I didn’t know how to eat. The ReShape weight loss program taught me how to look at food as fuel.”
“I incorporated the whole program into what I was doing and the weight just fell off.”
The weight loss balloon, personalized support, and new sense of portion control kept Charlie on track and excited to finally do all the things he couldn’t accomplish when he was overweight.
“Before the ReShape weight loss procedure, I would be driving my car down the road and I’d see these guys on their bicycles and I always wanted a bicycle. And I thought I could never do it.”
Now, Charlie is cycling up to 50 miles a week.
Since the ReShape weight loss procedure, Charlie has maintained his healthy diet and exercise routine, and lives a balanced life. “I have more energy. I feel more confident. I feel like a brand new man.” He continues to set new goals and smash them — one step at a time.
“I would recommend the ReShape gastric balloon and coaching to anybody that wants to lose weight. It’s a lifestyle change, so you need to be honest and go for it. And take one more step when you think you’re done.”
