I have struggled most of my life with my weight. I've either really controlled it or been completely out of control. I had sleeve surgery in 2007 and was able to get down to my ideal weight. After my second child in 2015, I was determined to get myself back into good physical shape and feel comfortable again in my own skin. After 10 months of working out and eating healthy 80% of the time, I watched the scale go up instead of down. I decided to have my sleeve redone. I knew a few people who had gone to Tijuana for surgery and have had great results. So I went for it, and it's the BEST thing I have done for myself in a very long time. The first picture is from after my first surgery in August 2009, 2nd is after 1st baby Summer 2012, 3rd pic Summer 2013, 4th pic January 2014, 5th picture November 2013, 6th pic was July 2016, morning of C-section with 2nd daughter, 7th pic July 2016, pics 8 & 9 from family photo session August 2016. To date I have lost 40 lbs. I do cardio and light weight training 4-5 times a week and follow a healthy diet of fish, chicken, rice and veggies. I feel wonderful and can finally say I am comfortable with myself again. I would recommend this surgery with this doctor to anyone who is in need of a major lifestyle change. My mother went with me and had the surgery as well. She has lost 45lbs and looks great at 56 years old. Overall this has been a wonderful experience!! Thank you for giving me my confidence back!!!
