Is anyone traveling March 8th to Tijuana?

Recommended Posts

I read...and read... and read. I watched U-tube video's of sleeved patients and there was one that stood out to me. I researched him, the facility and then I read some more from any post I could find. Although I've not had to go through the months of pre-op insurance requirements, its still been a work in progress for me mainly because of the logistics of getting there and back.

Reading...and reading...and reading some more...I agree. I am sure, just like a lot of people on this site, I have struggled with my weight my entire life. I am excited about this tool and am just looking forward to being at a “reasonable” weight that I can manage. Losing 50 pounds and then still having another 70 pounds to still lose has really taken its toll on me over the years. I am glad that this site is available. Please feel free to keep in touch!

I've struggled too, and the amazing thing is... I just got my results back from 23andme.... and it tells me genetically, I'm supposed to be small....hmmm...maybe after my surgery, my genes (and my brain) will get it right!!

By going to Mexico, do you feel you're missing out on the nutrition and counselling information you would have gotten had you gone through insurance? I do, but I'm finding so much here and on the various Facebook pages, but I still have questions...

Not really. I actually went through the seminar and the nutritional aspect because I was going to just pay out of pocket here in the states. I think that I am just worried about being so far away from home and having surgery.

      Ok...so keeping my daily weight updated on here is getting tedious due to the the daily 0-3 lbs fluctuations.  Soooo...I figure I'm just going to update every 1-2 weeks moving forward.

        Yeah, I kinda do it when I see a new low. Then it fluctuates up and down up and down until I finally see a new low. Mine went down to 131 on Saturday but is now back to 133, lol. So I won't log it till I see 131 for a second time.

        I do my daily weight graph in My Fitness Pal. Much easier and it keeps a cool graph!!

      7 days post revision... I am wiped out! I forgot about the energy depletion stage 
      Logically I know there is some fat left for use... But not much

        Yogurt. Matcha yogurt. ;) LOL. I could have thinned down yogurt and kefir on my full liquids phase. Maybe email your RD and ask if that's also on your full liquids. I use Peach and Cream, and Bananas and Cream in my yogurt to thin it into a soup right now. :)

      OMG! I dreamt of cake!!
      As of late, my dreams have been food obsessed. Last night I dreamed of gorging on good old American sheet cake with chocolate frosting. There was white frosting as well. Good thing we can't get that in Sweden! I just hope that I haven't become too engrossed in food. BUT they are only dreams after all.
