  1. Thank you for letting us be part off your journey. I look forward to reading your updated about your surgery/hospital/hotel/experience etc. :-)
  2. alma@ready4achange.com Alma is great
  3. I was going to be staying at the Marriott unfortunately I got pneumonia and my pcp told me I have to wait to have surgery. I'm super bummed but I'm hoping to get surgery as soon as I can after getting cleared from my Dr. I hope everything goes well for you! Keep me updated! :-)
  4. I getting there the day after you leave. I'm getting sleeved by Dr Garcia on Jan 23rd. Hopefully you can find someone else going around this time. :-)

    Fabulous Hostess Gifts Anyone? Ideas Needed!

    I've always done a nice bottle of wine and like a basket gift (with cheeses/crackers/peanut brittle etc). We have a really lovely store that does reasonable gift baskets for $30-$75. I'm in northern California. I'm not sure if they are wine drinkers but it's always a nice thing for the holidays. Best of luck and have a wonderful Thanksgiving! :-)
  6. I haven't heard of that happening. I thought your stomach starts to heal over your staples so I don't think there's the possibility of it causing a leal after your stomach heals. I'd ask your surgeon and see what he thinks Best of luck :-)
  7. I don't use thenuva ring but I had a friend get prego right after taking her Nuva ring out. Hopefully it happens quickly for you too Good luck :-)
  8. I had to reschedule my VSG for January 22nd so I have 82 days til VSG! I'm so ready for it to be here. It can't come fast enough
  9. Hope all went well. Keep us updated! :-)
  10. I haven't told any friends or family of my scheduled VSG on Nov 14th in Mexico. The only person that knows is my husband. How did your friends and family react to Surgery in Mexico?

    Definitely don't recommend the depo shot! It's horrible...or at least it was for me. My dr has me on Nora-BE, it's a non-estrogen birth control pill and my PCP said that it's best for women who are overweight. I'd talk with your surgeon and PCP and see what they think. Best of luck!

    I want to be your inspiration!

    I LOVE YOUR BLOG! I just saw your post yesterday and I read it all since then. Amazing! I'm so glad you're doing well. And you are an inspiration. I'm so jealous of all your travels, I told my husband after I get my sleeve done(Nov. 14th) that we should travel for the year. LOL. It won't happen(he's finishing up school) but a girl can dream.
  14. Hey y'all! I just scheduled my VSG for November 14th with Dr. Garcia in Mexico. I was wondering, what you're looking forward to or if you've had the surgery what the best nsv you've had is?? I'm looking forward to having kiddos! That's the main reason for getting this done! I'm also looking forward to smaller clothes(right now I'm a 28 pant), I'm looking forward to being lighter than my husband hes 240lbs I'm 350 :-( ), running in my companies annual race for awareness 5k, buying cute panties/bras, having my husband pick me up(he does it now but I'm always afraid I'm going to crush him), the list goes on and on! :-)
  15. I'm so excited we finally heard back from my Husbands work and he got the time off for my surgery! We leave November 13th and I'll be sleeved November 14th with Dr. Garcia in TJ. So now it's on....my husband is a huge planner....he has been trying to find a good packing list. What were some things you're glad that you took to Mexico with you? Or what do you wish you would have packed? Thanks everyone!
  16. I'm sorry. I don't think it will be too late, You're beautiful and there's a reason he married you, he loves you. He's probably just being a dude. Don't give up hope. When are you having surgery?
  17. I feel the same way about the airplane....I'm so worried about going down there at 350, I haven't been on a plane in almost 3 years.

    Packing list?

    Thank you! That's one of the top things that I've read to bring. I'm wondering if I should get anything else? My husband is trying to pack everything in our house....just incase. He's a goober.

    Goal weight?

    Hey y'all so I've been thinking about what m goal weight should be....I'm 5'4.5" 26 years old and right now I'm 350lbs. I'm thinking I'd love to be 175...maybe less if I get there. How did you all decide what your goal weight would be?

    Pre surgery

    I haven't tried many yet, surgery is in November, but on that I did and really liked was Isopure. The grape flavor is pretty good. You can get them at GNC. Good luck!
  21. I'm getting sleeved on the 14th with dr garcia and coming home the 18th. I also have a count down! Lol 65 Days! So excited!
  22. My surgery is scheduled for November 14th with Dr Garcia! I'm so excited!!
  23. Im not sure how not having your birth certificate will go. can you get a passport card? They are $55 if you've never had a passport and $30 if you have. Someone posted that it took them 10 days to get when they expedited it. Best of luck
  24. Hey ladies! So I just scheduled my VSG for November but my surgeons office told me to stop my birth control. I'm worries stopping it will cause me to get prego before surgery and then it will be all for nothing.... Don't get me wrong I want to have babies, that's the reason I'm having this surgery but I dont want them when I weight 350 lbs. Did your dr not want you taking Birth control 2 months before your surgery? Thank you ladies!
