The new ad spot - from Apollo - tugs right there at your heart, don't it? I might be tearing up over all of the completely stereotypical situations right here in this here commercial! OMG I CAN FIT IN THE AEROPLANE SEATBELT WITHOUT AN EXTENDER COULD YOU PLEASE PUT ME IN A COMMERCIAL ALTHOUGH I WAS NEVER SUPER MORBIDLY OBESE I AM JUST AN ACTOR!
Until this and my tears dry up!
Because of course we will ignore the patient histories of thousands -- to have a procedure to lose how much weight?
Just as a frame of reference, that makes me qualify in a few BMI points. Confession: when I reached my high weight about the same time the new BMI-qualifications for the Allergan-owned lap-band came around, I decided THAT WAS IT. I could not possibly do it again, my butt was not revising band-over-bypass for that much weight, not after watching this weight loss community for 12 years. Nope.
