I know at least 8 people who've had this surgery done by Dr. Mario, all with great results. But even so, it took me two years to decide to do it myself. I wanted to do my own research and count the cost. I decided it was the best decision for me. My mother was a third generation diabetic who died at age 60 from complications of this disease. Being overweight was just an added health risk for me.

Once I made the decision, the team at Weight Loss Agents made it simple and uncomplicated to get the surgery. The team of doctors and nurses in Mexico were very knowledgeable and attentive. At no time did I feel unsafe or uncared for. It was my experience that if you follow all instructions to a "t" and set your mind that this is a life-altering decision, then you will get a great result. I've lost more than my goal weight and I feel great! I actually feel like I'm aging in reverse now.

It's a big decision and I recommend you go into with a lot of thought and consideration - it's a permanent decision. While some aspects of the process are physically hard - very restricted eating during the first 3 months of recovery, the biggest hurdle for me was mentally. We don't realize how much we depend on food endorphins, how addicted we are to food. The surgery changes all that. It doesn't feel the same to eat. Eating is now a very necessary process more than an experience. I can't stress that enough. It's not that you can't enjoy an experience with food any longer, it just doesn't hold the same weight. Food is the supporting cast - not the lead.

People ask me all the time if it was worth it. My answer is a resounding YES! It changed my life in all the best ways.
