At the age of 57 I found myself divorced out of an abusive marriage and 127 pounds overweight. I had always been over weight but never, as my doctor called me, "morbidly obese". Years and years of off and on diets and off and on exercising only to gain back or gain more I realized I was on journey that just went round and round with no happy ending. I had to do something I had never done before in order to get out of the circle. I researched several things and than a friend of mine did the gastric sleeve in Mexico. I watched her loose so much weight and she shared with me her experience before, during and after surgery. The good, not so good, temporary changes and permanent ones. After speaking with my doctor I MADE THE DECISION and contacted WLA and had my surgery in November of 2017 by Dr Mario Almanza in Mexico. That one decision changed my life. It has been one year and I have lost 102 of the 127 pounds I want to. I am on no medication. I no longer have sleep apnia. I am no longer pre diabetic or have high blood pressure. I hike all the time because I can and I love to. I have energy and I look 10 years younger. I am strong and vibrant and I take adventures and do things I have never done. I finally have my happy ending.
