Recommended Posts

well well well...after wanting weight loss surgery for 8 years, going to several US seminars, coming up with various scenarios for how to pay for it, cancelling out on Mexico TWICE....I am FINALLY SLEEVED!! Hip Hip Hooray! Lol...AHAHAHAHHA! I am in Mexicali RIGHT NOW. Hospital is fantastic. Nurses are superb and Dr. Aceves and Dr. Campos are great. I am so glad I came. I had to travel by myself, but I did it and I am alive to talk about it.

Awesome! Great to hear your doing good. Sip, walk, and take good care of yourself. Keep us updated on progress!

Thank you everyone!!!! Had my first challenge: Went into a Mexican store and was confronted with chips and pastries and candies of all kinds of wonderful fabulous flavors that they don't sell in the US. DANG! LOL! I had to leave them behind. :) I am doing good though. Sipping, walking and BREATHING!

CONGRATULATIONS Dalisgirl, Welcome to the loser's bench!

The first few weeks are the hardest, but once you are on mushies things start to improve and get easier. The weight will just fall off you! Take it easy, walk, sip, burp and be gentle with yourself.

I am scheduled for surgery May 14th. I am going to have Dr. Almanza. I have tried to lose weight before and have succeeded. Now throw in a thyroid problem....with the medicine I have gained and can't lose. I learned of VSG surgery when I met a girl on vacation and she shared her story with me. After talking longer with her I found out she actually lives only about 1 hour from me! I am doing this for me...right now we haven't told anyone except my son and daughter. Once I lose weight and more questions may arise, I may come clean....maybe I won't...LOL Best of luck to you.

I've decided not to tell anyone until after. I did tell one of my friends (as kind of a test) and she was open and asked me questions about the procedure. I then told her I was going to Mexico and she flipped! I told her about the dr and hospital and she was a little calmer but after that, I can only imagine how my fam will react. I will just have to deal with them being upset about not knowing before I had surgery. To me that's better than dealing with negativity and being stressed pre-op. I have enough to worry about!

Reading this post all the way through was rather like a book and I was cheering you on all the way. When I finally got to the post where you had the surgery, I was crying and clapping for you. I am so happy for you and bless you.

      To working out faithfully for 5 days a week. Lets go back to that year with a more positive mind, 
       
      SKINNY SZN HERE WE COME!!!!
       
      It's Saturday!!! My fiance and I are out doing yard work and I made the mistake of not staying hydrated before going out so now my body is shaking and weak. I have my pre-op appointment Tuesday, the 2nd and I am trying my hardest to lose another 2 lbs by then.

        You got this!! When I had the sleeve I cried every day during the liquid phase, It was during the super-bowl! I was sooo hungry I sucked on a piece of pork rind. LOL
