Glad I Had It - Moultrie, GA

I am almost at my two month mark. I have lost about 15 pounds. After my 4th week, it was difficult for me to tell I had the balloon inside. I have noticed it is harder for me to eat salads, broccoli and other harder digestive foods. Orbera slows your stomach emptying process down just a little. Orbera has to be used as a TOOL in your weight loss journey. You have to exercise and eat healthy because it does come out in 6 months. My exercise consists of crossfit with walking /running. My calorie entake is around 1,0000-1,3000 calories a day. Those calories are quality foods like proteins and vegetables. I do eat a small amount of carbs. Fitness pal app is a great tool I use to help me track my food entake. I also have a fitbit to monitor my steps and sleep patterns. I would recommend Orbera!

4 Months In

I am very happy with Orbera. I am in my 4th month and have lost 21 pounds. I have lost slow compared to others, but I would rather it be slow. One and a half years previous to Orbera I had lost 40 pounds. I did it though exercise and better eating habits. I hit a wall at 40 pounds and could not get past the 40 pound mark for at least 10 months. Orbera was the tool that took me over that 40 pound mark. I am currently losing about 1.5 pounds every week and sometimes every other week. I ran my first 5K at Disney World in February (see profile picture).
