    I had surgery on March 8th 2013. I used Dr. Garcia at ready for a change. Hospital MI doctor. I was low BMI to start with 5'5 200 pounds. Today I'm 130 pounds. Been maintaining for a few months now. I have 3 friends who also had the procedure in Mexico same result. Of your wondering about safety. I never felt any danger

    Self pay sleevers: BMI of 30 or close

    I was sleeved March 8th. I was 195 pounds now I am 145 pounds. My goal is 135. I cant remember what my BMI was. Im 5'5. I think everyone who does the surgery should do it cause they want to no matter what the magic Bmi number is. I have been judged by people since my surgery people saying I didnt need it BUT it was my money my body my time. So who cares what people think. I feel amazing and I am more happier then ever!

    20 pounds in a month is hardly a stall. Thats awesome! Make sure you have a scale that measures ounces. Sometimes a few ounces makes a difference. Weigh ur self same time everyday same amount of clothes. (I always weight in the morning with no clothes on). Always take Vitamins everyday. Dont focus so much on working out right away do small walks and little things. I learned only eat when im hungry and I dont worry about eating all the meals I just listen to my body and eat when im hungry. Watch out on drinking too many calories. Its really easy to do! It goes down easy lol. Its hard. The hardest part is going out to eat with family. I want to eat and keep eating my body doesnt let me. Sitting there at first felt awkward. I just want to eat like everyone else. Im getting use to it now and have a few learning lessons of eating too much and ending up in the bathroom throwing up for 20 mins. NOT FUN! At the end its worth it and I would do it again in a minute. Its crazy to know ill lose the weight and guess what....it wont come back!! Good luck in ur journey

    Yes I was self pay. Its ok. I am use to the question. I have been up and down with weight for years and I have heart disease and high blood pressure in my family so I decided to stop it before it starts! I am very happy with my choice and feel great.
