Dieting since his teenage years, Joshua knew he needed to do something different. "I needed a tool," he explained, "to get to a healthier me." The 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. The pounds are still coming off and he trained for the 2015 Ironman. The 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.
