  1. Hello everyone. I’m so glad to see this forum. I’m planning a revision to the mini bypass as well. I was originally sleeved in 2013. As with everyone else, I’m plagued with heartburn and weight gain. I’m planning to self pay and return to my original surgeon. I’m hoping to have my surgery sometime this summer.


  2. So I am having a mini pity party....I gained 4 lbs then lost 2 of them. I have lost 85 lbs in 6 months and I am 15 lbs away from my goal weight. I know I have done great BUT to gain weight and in the first year has me discouraged and worried. I feel like I let myself slide because I was doing so well. Eating skinny cow ice cream' date=' chips, cookies...... I pretty much have done this the entire time and continued to loose and I thought it was because I had 1 cookie or just a handful of chips instead of 6 Cookies and the bag of chips but now I gained! Why am I so shocked???? Have any of you felt that your old habits are slowly sneaking back into your life?[/quote']

    I know that feeling all to well. I too have to struggle with wanting a few cookies and always struggle trying to keep those carbs down. I've also slowed on taking my Vitamins etc... It's taxing sometimes


  3. Sleeved 02/26/2013 by Dr Fernando Garcia in Tj Mx. Down a total of 57.8 pounds. SW 232, CW 174. scale will sometimes slowly move back and fourth. This is the frustrating part. Keeping under 1000-1200 calories. Trying to exercise 2-3 x week. I feel great just wish I were losing a little faster. Oh and I'm 5'1.

    1st pic the week before surgery.

  5. Today I was feeling slightly discouraged with my stall in weight loss, so I took this picture this morning as a source of inspiration.

    Starting weight: 232

    Surgery weight: 221

    Current Weight: 182

    Surgeon: Dr Fernando Garcia

    Agency: Ready 4 A Change: alma (coordinator)

    I would recommend them without hesitation!

    50 pound weight loss in 4 months

    So thankful for this tool and working everyday to continue making the right lifestyle modifications to keep me on the road to success

  6. This is the way I was looking at it. From a legal point of view. And the possible business loss from these allegations. If I ever get tired of trying to lose my last 5lbs to get the ball rolling for surgery here in the states I wouldn't hesitate in considering Dr. Garcia. I've dealt with all kind of men and know how to handle them.

    Notice the lack of men commenting on this story. While many women are drawn to drama (Even Me) most men stay clear.

    And let me say that Dr Garcia and his team are great at performing weight loss surgeries. when we choose a surgeon for such an invasive procedure, what's important is his surgical competency. I would recommend him without hesitation. If you choose to use him you will be in good hands.


  7. The law of defamation protects a person's reputation and good name against communications that are false and derogatory. Defamation consists of two torts: libel and slander. Libel consists of any defamation that can be seen, most typically in writing. Slander consists of an oral defamatory communications. The elements of libel and slander are nearly identical to one another.

    Specific requirements that a plaintiff must prove in order to recover in a defamation action differ from jurisdiction to jurisdiction. Under the Restatement (Second) of Torts, which is drafted by the American Law Institute and has been influential among state courts, a plaintiff must prove four elements.

    First, the plaintiff must prove that the defendant made a false and defamatory statement concerning the plaintiff.

    Second, the plaintiff must prove that the defendant made an unprivileged publication to a third party.

    Third, the plaintiff must prove that the publisher acted at least negligently in publishing the communication.

    Fourth, in some cases, the plaintiff must prove special damages.

    With this being said BS has placed herself and others in a very difficult spot. SHE (either willingly or thru coercion) has OPENLY stated that SHE lied. Basically admitting libel!! If in fact what she said was 100% truth, the way that she went about expressing the truth makes her actions questionable, especially when she turned around and recanted her story. People have taken what she has said and made the assumptions that the man could be capable of "rape and molestation of a pt while under anesthesia."

    If indeed he is guilty of sleeping with patients, in the United States he may be deemed guilty of moral turpitude; however, if what the OP has accused him of is untrue, in the United States he would be entitled to punitive damages (which wouldn't be difficult to recover since she's admitted she "lied".

    Oh my, the drama never ends here. I suggest that you all let sleeping dogs lie and "back away from the fire".

    Truth or untruth, in the end we ALL must answer to a higher power who is ALL knowing. So if it seems as though he's "getting away" with things, he won't be. And if the OP is indeed "lying" then SHE will have to be held accountable on THAT day.


  8. Just wondering how many calories everyone is now consuming and what everyone is eating???? I am taking in about 900-1000 calories a day and eating just about anything except Pasta and some bread products. Still losing weight and working out at least 3 days a week.

    Sleeved 2/26/13 and getting between 800-1000 calories a day. Pretty much eating everything except bread/pasta, I try to stay away from that. I have eaten wheat bread and small tablespoons of rice though they make my tummy feel so heavy. Total 49 pounds lost since surgery/pre op diet. So wanna get to at least 150. Feeling great, trying to continue to track on MFP and often struggling with trying to decrease my carbs. How many carbs are you Feb sleevers taking in?
