I have battled weight issues my entire life. Up and down and back and forth, and finally the weight just kept going up and up. I tried so hard to eat right and exercise, then one day I was diagnosed with high blood pressure and diabetes. I realized that I had no control over my life, but there were things I could do to get that control. Several of my friends have gone to Dr. Almanza for weight loss surgery, and I thought why not me? I was terrified, would it be painful and awful? I remember waking up in my bed and thinking, where am I hurting??! What can I do? But I didn't hurt and I wasn't in pain. I felt like I had pulled a muscle in my stomach, and I had a bit of gas in my chest area but the more I moved and walked around the better it was. I couldn't believe I just had surgery, it didn't feel like it. And the thing that amazed me most was I wasn't hungry. Me, the girl who was always hungry and always starving herself was no longer hungry. As the days kept going I just kept feeling better and better. I did a lot of walking while I stayed in Mexico, and I have continued that since I have come home. I am starting my third week post surgery and I am now completely free from my diabetes medication and my high blood pressure medication. I will continue to moniter for a few months but I have never felt so good. I also have kept in touch with many of the people I met on my journey in Mexico. Every single patient there was kind and caring and helped answer questions. Thank you to Dr. Almanac and his staff for letting me take control of my life again. I have lost almost 25 lbs in the last three weeks and I am excited to keep watching the scale move down. I am finally going to be the person I have always wanted to be. Me. Thank you!
