I am a 5'8" large framed woman who has always struggled with my weight from pueberty, I've always been 220-260 from high school til a few years ago, I started driving a semi 3 1/2 years ago and quickly went from 260 to 320 in a couple of years. Being on the road and sitting all the time, not to mention the poor choices of food for us truckers. I saw dr. Almanza's ad online and quickly inquired, researched and signed up. I didn't hAve the time or patience to deal with drs and health insurance companies and jump through their hoops here in the USA not did I have that kind of money. I am very pleased with the level of care and attention that I received from Jerusalem hospital And once I met the others ladies who were there from all over the country I was at ease. I've started at 320 and have lost 140 lbs in the last year and a half. I haven't weighed 180 lbs since I was in jr high, not wore a size 14. I was buying size 26/28 pants and 30/32 shirts , at the highest size in the plus stores. I thank the whole staff at Jerusalem hospital for making it affordable for me to change my life and my future. I'm pretty sure it will pay for itself in future possible health problems had I not had it done . I feel great, have more energy , and more confidence. Thanks to you guys!!! If you're not sure if you want to do it, DO IT!!! You'll thank yourself later
