After my last baby I couldn t loss the extra weight for two years I was so depress because I try every diet, pill, and exercise with no results I was always in a bad mood didn t like the way I look and feel very insecure. I was desperate so after checking this page and testimonials I decide to get the surgery. I was kind of nervous of going by myself to Tijuana but everything was so wonderful I feel safe and the people in the Hotel and the Clinic were very nice people. To be honest I did regret getting the surgery the first weeks because I couldn t eat anything you will feel hungry but you just can t tolerate food anymore but it just take some time for your body to get use to but especially you really need to be prepare psychologically because if you are a compulsive eater like I use to be it won t be that easy but not I know now it is not impossible believe me so please prepare yourself for a drastic change on your life and in the way you use to eat. I got my surgery on September 2, 2014 I am 5.3 weighted 205 pounds and it s almost 5 months of my surgery I have lost 55 pounds and I look and feel excellent, I currently weigh 150 pounds feel more motivated specially that I went from a size 18-16 to a size 10 I feel so happy. I didn t really exercise that much after surgery just walk and clean the house. I feel now with a lot more energy and motivated. I play more with my kids and don t feel tired or out of bread. I will definitely recommend the surgery to anyone suffering overweight.
I now eat almost everything just can t tolerate spicy or hot food anymore or pop s but don t miss them much. I eat what I can t feel full with little food and I eat little like every 2-3 hours feel healthy and I continue to lose weight little by little but that s fine with me so I don t get decompensated .
If you have any questions please feel free to ask me any questions I was in your shoes ones and I know how you feel. I check testimonials in this and other pages, YouTube, etc. some good some bad but I m very glad I took the right decision. Just remember that we all are different bodies.
