So, I thought I was sure on who I wanted to do my surgery...but recently two other strong contenders came into the picture. I am looking for some help and thoughts on the three I have listed below:

1. Dr. Ungson at Mexicali Bariatric: Pros: Will allow my husband to stay with me, performs multiple leak tests, has good reviews, Dr. appears very competent but he does lack US certifications like AMBTS. Cons: cost is more expensive, Doc does not have that international certification that I can find

2. Dr. alejandro lopez at ALO Bariatrics: Pros: has good reviews, cost is less, Dr does have AMBTS certification Cons: There may be an issue with my husband staying with me and that makes me nervous

3. Dr. Illan with Bariatricpal MX: Pros: Has good reviews, cost is good, has AMBTS certification, performs leak tests, will let my husband stay with me Cons: I am concerned about Tijuana. MX and whether it is safe.

Any thoughts on these three programs?

Dr Ungson or any of the other surgeons at Mexicali Bariatric Center; hands down.

Mrs. Hutslar, I have been looking at doing this for quite some time. Now I too am wondering if it is safe to go to Mexico. Had a friend that went before all the problems down there and at the border and highly recommends going. Great time and great people. If anyone can help to ease our minds it would be appreciated!!!

Geez! I'm so glad you posted this. I'm torn between 2 facilities. BariatricPals & Endo. Both have very good recommendations and highly qualified doctors and staff. One is closer & <$, the other is a tiring flight from Seattle and >$. The <$ is very inviting as the >$, I'm in constant turmoil at this point. I don't plan on having surgery until September 2019 unless I can get the $$$$ sooner.

I'm so glad there is another soul out there riding the fence as well!

      Went to see the Star Wars movie yesterday. (Glad I waited as no one else was in the cinema for the midday session - yes!) Hadn’t been to the cinema for a few months and OMG I suffered the most terrible butt pain.  So uncomfortable. Started after 30 mins. Was in the premium cinema so grabbed a cushion to sit on but it didn’t help. Ended up sitting sideways in the chair, stretched out on an ottoman. Soooo super glad no one else was there. Sometimes I do miss my old butt fat cushioning... but not really.

      I have a surgery date, I have my next doctor appointment on Wed and then Thursday I start my 2 week liquid pre-op diet. I am very nervous right now. I know it's going to be a tough mind game.

      Week 5 Post Op Report

      What a journey! I am 5 weeks from surgery and a total of 24.4 pounds down!

      I feel amazing! I’ve incorporated a ton of walking and I’m using my Apple Watch to help me along! I have closed all three of my fitness rings for 11 days straight! Ok, so I am in LOVE with my Apple Watch. I've had it for almost a year and I am just now tapping into it's fitness power!

      I keep on top of my protein, vitamins and biotin!

      I struggle with water but I average about 50 ounces a day. I have only had one day where I had to “purge” because something did not agree with me. Tuna and my Tiny Tummy still do not agree so I’m going to leave it alone for a while!

      I walk on average a little more than 3 miles a day for my exercise but manage to get in at least 13,000-17,000 steps a day depending on how my schedule goes.

      I get up every hour and walk around for at least five minutes. Then if I’m watching a show I get up and walk in place during the commercials!

      I meet with my doc this week for a progress report.

      I have one more week before I graduate from soft foods to the final phase!

      I’ve got my cookbooks ready, my food scale ready and my measuring plates ready!

      I could NOT be more happy with my progress! I feel amazing and I’m grateful to have this tool!

      None Scale Victory: My rings on my finger are spinning!

        Sabrina, you are doing so well. I'm truly inspired and equally excited for you. The view you shared is breathtaking and relaxing, I'm in love with the ocean. Please keep sharing. Where did you find the trackers and how do I access them? My date is approaching the 31st, I'm in liquid diet mode. I see my surgeon on the 17th. Any advice?

      2. SabrinaGoddess

        You got this sis! You totally do.
        The ocean is so peaceful. Some days I get blessed with seeing whales, dolphins and seals. It is truly amazing.

        You can go to under our name at the top left section and click "TICKERS" you can create them there. Then when you lose weight you just go to "my surgery" and change your weight and they will adjust.

        On the liquids, do sugar free pop-cycles. They are more like a treat than a liquid and they count as 2 ounces each! Liquids not the funnest part of our journey but who cares....LOL. I do like the IsoPure clear liquid protein drinks, you can get them at GNC. The flavors are ok. I also LOVED Kettle and FIre Broth and Epic Broths so I drank them all the time, it's good for you. It's BONE BROTH. Kinda pricey but the good stuff usually is.

      3. Krimsonbutterflies

        Thank you for the encouragement/positivity!!! I'm going to conquer this liquid phase, moment by moment. I also appreciate the mini tutorial of how to get the ticker. I'm thinking of starting status updates after my pre-op visit with the surgeon on Friday. I really enjoy the personal perspective and experience being shared, without feeling like the thread is being dominated. I look forward to how each person is approaching the wls lifestyle. Thank you lady, good night. Happy Whale watching. I love seeing the dolphins at Hermosa Beach.
