Almost one year ago I changed my life for the better! I made the huge decision to go to Tijuana, Mx and have the gastric sleeve surgery by Dr. Almanza! It was the best decision I ever made!

In the days prior to my travel, I went through the normal feelings of elation, fear, questioning and almost changed my mind because of fear of the unknown. What would happen to my children and family if something horrible happened? But then I also reminded myself that if I didn't have the surgery I would forever blame myself for not doing it and kick myself for the fear that kept me from it.

The experience was better than I expected! I was very blessed with my recovery as I wasn't in pain like some were. I did exactly what the doctor and nurses suggested by walking and sipping all the time and here I am, almost 1 year later 93 pounds down!

Follow the rules, do what you're told, keep a food diary, take your vitamins, drink your fluids and exercise. You can do this!
