Adeena - Obalon Testimonial
Adeena: I work in PR and so every day there's another event, another dinner, another thing with a lot of wine or desserts and so for me it's always been kind of hard because you know, you can't really track calories or have pre made meals so dieting for me has been a struggle because I've really, like, I have a crazy kind of schedule. So, I needed something that would help me change my life and he changed my relationship with food. I am about 3 1/2 months into my procedure, I have all three balloons, and I've continued on a steady pace of about 1 1/2 pounds a week, so I'm down about 20 pounds altogether so far. I've been that girlfriend at dinner who you hate, the one who always is like, oh, we can order dessert and then eats one bite and is like, I'm so full, I couldn't have another bite. That is by far the best thing ever.
I think that I totally did this for myself. I did not do this for my husband or my kid or my parents or anybody else, I really wanted to lose weight. It's disappointing when you look in the mirror and you just don't recognize yourself. One of the things I really liked, it's a six month treatment, there wasn't surgery involved, it was out of the office, literally the treatment takes 10 minutes and you're back at work. It's been really, really easy. The results have been amazing. And honestly, it was really safe. It seemed like a great way to kick myself into gear and get the diet started, get the exercise started.
You feel bad if you're doing all this and you're not really putting your all into it. You're not really trying to eat your best and work out, so it really was that six month start to 'til a better life.
