Hi! My name is Lori. I was so fortunate to find all of the GREAT people at HCA Florida General and Weight Loss Surgery, to perform my lapband surgery. I am the mom of a very active 5 year old and have struggled with my weight my whole life. I needed help, because I want to be around for my son for a long time. I was diagnosed with Type 2 diabetes 5 years ago, and knew I was in a downward spiral! I had my lap band placed in July 2012 and have lost 92lbs so far! I can't believe that I can say I love working out! The best thing about HCA Florida General and Weight Loss Surgery for me is that they teach you everything to be successful and best of all HEALTHY. The education does not stop once the band is placed, it is awesome. I thank god every day they saved my life! Lori

I’ve just completed my third 5K race and I’ve already signed up for my next one. I have more energy than I ever thought possible, and I wonder why I waited so long.
