Dear Ms. LaRusso:

It is never often enough that we take the time to say thank you for a job really well done. Ms. LaRusso, I don't really know where to begin, but I just wanted you to know that you, Dr. Barao and the rest of the staff have made a tremendous impact on my life. Not to bore you with all the fat history that you've heard ad nauseum, mine is no different than anyone else's. I ate like a pig and I just kept putting on the weight....it's really very simple.

It's about 4 months since I've had the lap band procedure and I couldn't begin to tell you how happy I am. The biggest reason I felt I wanted to write this note to you is that I just went through the worst part of my year for gaining and I actually lost. That's right...I normally will put anywhere from 8 - 12 during the period from Thanksgiving to the middle of January. This year I lost 6 pounds. Hey, it doesn't sound like a lot for two months, does it? But every other year for the past 15 or so, I'd gain a dozen and I wouldn't get it off till March and most times not all of it. So I look at it like a net profit of 18 pounds!! I'm thrilled. With the help of the band, I was able to push myself away from so many fat dinners, you wouldn't believe it if I told you. Myself, coming from a big fat Italian family, well I'm sure you understand. Eating is what we lived for.

I just wanted you to know this. Thank you and the rest so much. For the record, Sammi and Laura were always such a pleasure to deal with. Always in a good mood and always getting me through the rough patches. Thank them both very much for me.

I'm halfway there, halfway to where I haven't been in ten years.
Woo hooooo......thanks again.
