    10 months out

    Great job!!! Sent from my SM-G935U using BariatricPal mobile app
  2. 9 months ago when I took the picture on the left I was miserable, depressed and down right disgusted with myself. Yesterday July 23rd, 9 weeks post op I decided to take some new pictures. The one on the right is one of those pictures. I am so thankful I had such an amazing surgeon and team members. They made sure my surgery was done properly in order to make sure my success is achievable. Dr Maytorena, Long Term WLS, and my coordinator gave me so much more than I could ever have imagined. In 9 short weeks, yes you read that right, I am down over 50 pounds almost 70 pounds counting my preop! I feel better than I have in years! I have more self esteem, better sleep, I'm more active and I now love my life again! I wanted this more than anything in the world and my team made sure it was done the right way, to begin with in order for me to be successful. For that I am forever grateful! If you want to be successful as well I highly recommend these guys. I am not affiliated with them at all other than I had my sleev there. I am sharing my story in hopes that it inspires someone else. Don't ever give up because YOU CAN SUCCEED!!! Sent from my SM-G935U using BariatricPal mobile app

  6. I am super excited today! I have lost a total of 87 pounds!! 71 pounds since surgery! I still have a long way to go but I'm getting there day by day, inch by inch! All possible because of hard work, dedication and my amazing surgery team. I can't thank Ruben Long Term and Dr Jorge Maytorena Soto Gil enough for this tool that has given me my life back. If you are considering weight loss surgery and your insurance won't cover it consider Long Term WLS team. You won't be sorry!

    Thank you! I'll be sure to follow you back so I can keep an eye out for your progress. I know the feeling about not being able to afford a new PC. I just got a cheap one and hate it. It's so slow and has no memory at all ugh! Think I may try to find a really good one soon. Just have to save up for it first. Sent from my SM-G935U using BariatricPal mobile app

  24. As far as my eating I eat chicken, shrimp, protein shakes and such. I am at very low carbs probably 20-30 daily. I haven't had pasta or rice since surgery. It sucks but it's worth it. Sent from my SM-G935U using BariatricPal mobile app
