Dieting since his teenage years, Joshua knew he needed to do something diferent. "I needed a tool," he explained, "to get to a healthier me." Te tool that helped Joshua achieve his health goals was LAP-BAND®. Combining LAP-BAND with increased activity, he was able to eliminate all medication three weeks after surgery and lost 120 pounds in a year. He's run eight 5k races since the surgery, including the Kentucky Derby Festival mini-marathon last year. Te pounds are still coming of and he's training for the 2015 Ironman. Te LAP-BAND® System is reported to be the least invasive, safest and the only adjustable and reversible surgical weight loss option available in the United States. It helps achieve sustained weight loss by placing an adjustable band around the upper part of the stomach to reduce its capacity.
