Two years ago, I made the best decision of my life (except for marrying my husband): to have gastric sleeve surgery. As a mother of five, I was always putting my children, husband, teaching position, before myself! Gastric sleeve isn't the easy way out and you definitely need to be committed to making changes in your life; however, I am so incredibly happy with my results. When I had surgery, I weighed 287 pounds and wore a XXL or size 20/22. I reached my goal of 170 in 8 months but continued to lose weight. I set 170 as my goal because I never imagined I could be a THIN person. I continued to lose weight until 14 months post surgery. My final weight is 130-135 pounds and I wear a size small or size 2-4. Because of this surgery, I got to take my dream trip to Ireland and Scotland with my daughters last month. I would never have been able to have this amazing adventure with my girls if I would have been 287 pounds! I am more active, happier, and more confident. I will be a first time Mimi in September and I'm so glad I will be an active grandmother!
Anyone considering surgery should go for it! Dr. Almanza and his staff are incredible and the facility is modern, clean, and comfortable. You won't regret changing your life!
