I have contemplated on and off for quite some time to do the gastric sleeve procedure in Mexico. After much thought and a lot of prayer, I will hopefully have my surgery scheduled for February 10, 2015.  
I have struggled with my weight my entire life.  Although I am very tall for a female, I tend to carry my weight well and people do not think I weigh as much as I do. 
Since high school (early 90's) I haven't been under 195 so I pray that this surgery helps me get to my goal weight of 145 and maintain that healthy weight for the rest of my life.
My husband and I are apprehensive about traveling to Mexico but it is what I want and I've read nothing but good reviews.  We will be using A Lighter Me with Dr Elias Oritz for the gastric sleeve procedure.
I will update as necessary!!
Thank you for reading my story!!
