I don't know how it happened but one day someone took a picture of me (against my will) and the person in the picture looked like Jabba the Hut. Of course I had many hints that my weight was beyond control. I have made a list in my journal of Reasons I Hate Being Fat.
Here are a couple of thing some of you might be able to relate to.
1. That pesky steering wheel rubs in my stomach
2. Meeting friends for lunch and whoops you need a table because you can't fit in the booth
3 Taking a shower and finding last nights dinner under your flaps.
I had everything going against me, I had just lost my job after 13 years and I was way to heavy to find a job. I had no insurance but I did have my little life's savings.
I made the scariest decision I have made in my life.
I decided to have gastric sleeve surgery in Tijuanna Mexico. I can promise Tijuana is nobody's vacation destination, it is as scary as everyone tells you.
Though it was the most terrifying experience of my life- I would do it again in a heartbeat. 25.5 pounds down 1 week out of surgery has given me back so much, my life, my relationships and my hope.
I would be happy to answer any questions regarding self pay medical tourism in Mexico or any other question I can answer.
