Is anyone traveling March 8th to Tijuana?



Recommended Posts

I am going in March, but a week later. Please keep us posted on how you do. I am having the sleeve by Dr. Illan as well.


Ok good luck to you! Four of my very good personal friends have successfully had the procedure done with the same doctor and they are all doing so fabulous. So I'm super excited and can't wait to go!

Sunbrezer, I am scheduled to be there March 9th with Dr. Ilan. I am very nervous about it. I’m flying with my husband. I hope I have chance to see you.

Awesome! I'm nervous about going by myself. My husband is staying home with our kids . My friend suggested reaching out on the app looking for people that is traveling around the same time . Hope to get to meet you when you get there

Oh wow! I'm driving as I only live a couple hours away. Where are you staying Thur night? I haven't decided if I am driving Thur night or Fri morning. Don't really want to sit in traffic after not eating or drinking.

I'm flying in on Thursday and actually having surgery the same day. So I'll be in the hospital that day. I feel the same way about being in an airplane all morning and not having surgery until that afternoon that's going to be challenging not eating or drinking anything either.

      So my surgery anniversary date is on the 24th of this month, but I had my 1-year follow up early with my surgeon this morning (I have another 1-year followup at the hospital on Monday to get my bloodwork and labs done).
      Anyhoo...my surgeon was very pleased with my results (and so where the office staff apparently, because 3 of the front desk ladies came by my exam room to give me props/high fives/generally gawk at me).
      But get this: he asked if I would be willing to come in for a future photoshoot so that I could be on a poster! And I was all, ummmm....no thanks, LOL.

        I guess I could, but the idea of being out there for all to see just skeeves me out! Nope, not for me ;)

      Today was a really tough day and I turned to food (and a watered down glass of wine). The interesting part was that I felt REALLY full after eating half my go to cheat snack, tortilla chips with cheese. So the GBP is doing its job!

      The only way I can tell that I'm losing weight is from the scale and my clothes "getting bigger".
