Our team at BeLiteWeight is always happy to hear about the success of our patients! There is nothing better for us than to learn about how much having surgery has changed their lives for the better. We are excited to share about our wonderful patient Candy, who was able to have the adventure of her life after getting a mini gastric bypass.
I had the mini gastric bypass, it was an easy surgery. The hospital in Juarez was clean and professional. It was nice to stay in the hospital and they accommodated my son who accompanied me on this journey, instead of being shipped off to a hotel, like a lot of other weight loss services in Mexico.
My life today, 15 months after gastric bypass is a complete 360 degree change. I do not know who that person is anymore in the before picture. I only know the person I have become after weight loss surgery, I walk, bike, workout, including kickboxing to say fit and get toned. Even though my stomach controls how much food I can eat. I still really watch what I eat. Clean, organic food, very rarely any processed food or food with refined sugars. Don 't get me wrong I still par-take in some of my favorite junk food, but to tell the truth, it does not taste the same, when I do take a bite or two. I would rather eat an apple or have a protein shake (Herbal Life has great shakes, it is my daily breakfast)!
About three months after the surgery and down about 50 lbs., I hit a plateau for about 3 weeks, but from what I have read it is normal. I decided it was time to start working out, as this surgery is a tool, not a cure. Now, I workout on a regular basis and sometimes to much, as my addiction to food and changed to my addiction to workout and eat right. I really enjoy working out, walking, just got a new 3 speed bike cruiser, I joined a kickboxing gym and I actually just SKYDIVED for the first time in my life. It was worth the wait to lose all my weight for the SKYDIVING ADVENTURE.
I am so glad that I had weight loss surgery, my life had definitely improved and I feel I will live longer, side note, been off high blood pressure medication for over 6 months.That is my story!
