I have not really been obese but wanted to lose about 40 pounds, I have always exercised, gone to the gym, tried to watch what I eat, but with age it is so easy to add a pound here and there. I had the gastric sleeve surgery and after 10 months I have lost 55 pounds, I won't say it was easy but it is getting easier. I am just now starting to exercise more and hope to lose about 10 more then I will be where I want to be. I have researched and talked to people that have had all types of stomach surgery and glad I went with the gastric sleeve. My friend and I went at the same time which I would highly recommend so you can compare symptoms, what to eat, what not to eat or drink etc.I was apprehensive about going to Mexico, but I was really impressed with the doctors, nurses & the cleanliness of the hospital and Recovery House. Also, the after care at the Recovery House was astronomical and also the calls and emails from the staff after to check up on me, I am forever thankful. Thanks for everything, you have my life a LOT happier.
