Reflections from a Skinny Chick

Recommended Posts

Hello. If you mean who was my doctor, it was Dr. Alberto Aceves in Mexicali at the Almater Hospital. He was an amazing man and had an amazing crew. I highly reccommend him and would go back to the Almater Hospital for any other procedure. Hope this helps.:biggrin0:

ME TOO! I love the staff at Almater, well except for a couple of nurses on the weekend, but I don't think anyone else would have noticed the minor issues I saw unless they where also a nurse (Like I am). I am down 100+ lbs! I have a quite a way to to still, but a great start.

Bravo to all of us willing to make a choice to change our situation, and making it a positive one. Just like life, we will have wonderful days, then the days we wonder why the blues have set in. Attitude is everything. Sometimes we just don't get everything our way, but to have the ability to overcome and continue pushing forward is how we will succeed. Sometimes it is as simple as counting our blessing. All things will pass.

      Hey October Surgery friends...how are you doing? I've lost 15 lbs since surgery on 18th.42 lbs overall. Wearing clothes that feel great. Had a bout of cold and stomach flu and still having some nausea off and on after that but getting better, I think. 
      Seems like I fill up and have minor pain quicker when I eat hot foods rather than cold. Anyone else notice this?
      Still sooo glad I did this.

        I had surgery Oct 29. Lost 35#. Plateau now. But seeing what clothes fit now is encouraging.

        My surgery was 10/19. #40 down since surgeon pre op visit. Getting close to end of soft foods. I think only issue going to regular foods is portion size. So far trying a new food every day. With no issues.
