LTVSG has an amazing doctor I am just not comfortable with the coordinator and hearing that he may be doing some shady things worried me so I decided not to go with them even though Dr. M is amazing.

I went with the basic package. After comparing the two the difference that I saw was a nutrition consult, a psychology consult, and spirometry... I didn't feel I needed those things. I can get set up with both a psychologist and nutritionist here so I went with the basic package. Anette the coordinator is really great and will talk to you about which package is best if you need. I found a girl on instagram that just recently went through ASlimmerme and she is beyond happy with her experience so I am even more comfortable with my choice and can't wait.

How is your experience so far? Are you pre or post op?. if you're pre op I would love to have a vsg partner.

It's been amazing so far. Anette and Lizette have been super responsive and helpful. I'm pre-op scheduled for May 18th (but fly in the day before to do pre-op testing). I'd love a partner!

Ok! I'll have to see if I can swing it that soon. How do you pay them? Can you pay before you go or are you supposed to go with cash in hand?

A deposit prior to hold your date (10%) that you pay by wire transfer or depositing it to their banks (Wells Fargo)... you can wire transfer the balance 1 week before surgery or take cash or cashiers check with you and pay when you get there. I'm not comfortable taking that much cash so I'll be doing a wire transfer or cashiers check.

Nice! So is the medicine after surgery included in the basic package? On the website when I looked it was listed only under the premium package.

It isn't... it's $150 for the meds in the basic package.

      Losing 1.2kg/2.6lbs in a week seems to be a bit disappointing when in reality it is quite reasonable at about 5kg/11lbs per month. I think that I cant quite remember the last 30kg/65lbs. Oh the mind games we play!

      Yup, I did it! I RAN my SECOND continuous 5K ever this morning! There is an option to do a 10K Sunday morning and I'm going to give it a try. It's basically the 5K twice. Even though this is a girls' trip, I kinda wish Mr. was here so he could witness my awesomeness.
      @FluffyChix, no it wasn't on the beach nor was I wearing a bikini, but I think I should get bonus points anyway, just for doing it a second time 😎

      just got back from my 2 year check up and wanted to post.  The kcal drop has me worried and thinking i need to up the weights and trim back the cardio. Never saw myself as a person who cared for bulky muscles but the increased calorie burn from more muscle mass certainly wont hurt. 
      New goal for the next year i guess.
