Is Belite Weight still in business??



Recommended Posts

I'm trying to help a friend with no insurance do some research but I haven't seen anything recent online about them. I haven't even gotten a response from my email to them yet.

I used Belite, I highly do NOT recommend them! They are about the money & that's it! I went to them for my sleeve back in 2011, when I would have a question they would not respond, or they would keep putting me off, but if I held back on a payment they were on the phone & sending me lots of emails demanding their money.

As I said, I do NOT recommend them!

I AGREE whoe Heartily!! My hubby had his Sleeve done June of 2016. They are about the money all the way!! Plus the hospital we were at left tons to be desired!! They didn't use gloves, or hand santizer!! We had to bring our own wash clothes!! The $50.00 we paid for his pain meds were a joke!! I could go on and on but...I just got told yesterday that I talk to much about my husbands surgery and my own!! Far be it from me I better shut up. Good Luck

If you EVER want to talk about anything, please feel free to private message me ANYTIME about ANYTHING!

OK, I have to add this, it is NOT the Dr's that I had an issue with, I found the Dr's to be great, it was the group that recruited for the Dr's, which was Belite, JoAnne especially, now granted the week that I went her son had been killed, but she was still there, as was 3 others, and as I said, I wouldn't give you .02 cents for the group at all!

Thanks everyone! Lauri and Sherri, thank you for sharing some of your experiences. That's why we're here. I want to hear the good and the bad. There should never be a problem with saying who you would, or wouldn't recommend. It all factors in with helping others make informed decisions.

Thank you so much!! That is exactly what I said to him. Also, I am sure that he talks about his journey too. He made it out to be that I was stealing another guys thunder without being asked too. When I was only trying to relay that my hubby had kept trying to get WLS and he weighed over 500#'s when he started way back when!! Oh well, Water under the bridge!! Again Thank you!!

I used BeLiteWeight one month ago and had a great experience! Dr. Rodriguez was awesome and told me what to expect after the surgery so I wouldn't freak out. So far I am down 20 lbs. :)

Which hospital were you at? They just changed us from Star Medica to Hospital Angeles

BeLiteWeight has two hospitals and two surgeons. Sometimes they use Hospital Angeles. I was at Star Medica, but both are used.

I’m now 6 months out. Lost 45 pounds, maintained through the holidays. Looking forward to getting back on track soon (after my birthday, which is tomorrow). Very happy with BeLiteWeight and the hospital I was at.

        It will be interesting to watch as this theory develops. Thanks for posting!

      Feel like it's time for a status update, I haven't been on here regularly in a while and I need to keep my mindset focused on my goals.
      I haven't weighed myself in ~ 3 weeks.  I think I'm becoming the opposite of "obsessive" about tracking my progress and it could cause me some issues.  The good thing is that there have still been quite a number of NSV's happening that is telling me that I'm still progressing without knowing what the scale says.
      First one is that a belt I bought about 5 weeks ago because all my other belts were too big is also on the last hole so I'll have to buy yet another belt again.  second, I bought new jeans about a month ago and I have a lot more slack in the waist than I did when I purchased them.  I also boarded a plane and had about 8 inches of slack in the belt.  Finally, I hit my goal last week of being able to ride go-carts with my kids.  The last time I tried about 4 years ago, I had to leave because I couldn't fit in the harness.  This was sweet victory and I showed those two how it was done on the race course!!  😈

      I just looked through all my old pants after my pre-op pants started getting to big. Keep in mind that I wear men's pants (usually cargos) because I am so tall 5'10"/5'11" ish. I also find that men's baggies tend to fit me better.
      I started out at a 44 in waist pant and quickly found that I was back down to my 42's. So even when thise got to be too big, I had to start pulling old clothes out of storage. After finding my 38's, I thought that these would not yet fit, but when I tried them on, they fit perfectly. I also found some older pants that now fit better than I remembered. What a relief! It's not like I can pop down to the store like I could do in the US and the styles here in Sweden are all skinnt jeans which I cant stand. I also found some 36's, but I'm not mentally ready to try those on yet. The biggest challenge will be buying women's clothing again.

      slow and steady wins the race.  don't get discouraged and just keep at it. Let your sleeve do its job and try not to stress yourself out.
      hope you are all having a great summer and enjoying what your sleeve has given you.
      just got back from a wedding in OR. and man am i afraid to get on the scale

        Great reminder about how fast you can lose weight. The mind games we play with ourselves are the worst.
