I have always been a bigger girl. So I had heard of bariatric surgery of course. After I left a bad relationship I decided it was time to work on myself and get a healthier life so I would be around when my children grow up. I had a friend whom I value and he told me he was going to Mexico to have the same surgery done that I wanted. So obviously I got all the info from him and watched hm when he came back and saw how it changed his life so I booked mine to. I started off at 274 pounds and to date I am now 208 pounds. I feel so much better and I can do more things without getting out of breath with my children. If you asked me if I would do it again I certianly would. It is a continuous thing that you have to do everyday. There may be some set backs but you can always start again.

My experience with the doctors was fantastic. Everyone that I saw the first day I was there were great. They all came in to meet you and shake your hand and answer any questions you may have. Then when I went to the recoveryhouse I got to meet more great people. My mom came with me and she was so pleased with how clean everything was. Also when we were at the recovery house we were able to go out shopping and sight seeing. It was all in all a great experience.

The only thing that was bad was how much gas you get lol... You can feel it for two days max but sooooo worth it in the end. If you want to know more feel free to get a hold of me and I will tell you more.

I will post some pictures later when I am able to download them!
