Tim came to us back in 2014 inquiring about weight loss surgery. He had many medical issues (like so many of us do), but he had a very positive attitude and was determined to change the course of his future to the better! He lived in the country of Belize, at that time. He traveled directly from Belize to the Hospital in December 2014 and had his Gastric Sleeve Surgery…7 years later, he is maintaining his weight and doing AWESOME!!!

Here are a few words from Tim:

I lost my thyroid due to cancer and I couldn’t seem to lose weight. My weight began to climb until I reached 310 pounds. 

I was on heart meds, blood pressure meds, cholesterol meds, fluid meds, and sleeping with a C-Pap machine every night. I NEVER FELT GOOD. My doctor recommended the gastric sleeve. 

I scheduled my surgery and had the sleeve in Mexico. It was the best hospital and best care I’ve EVER had. 

Within two months, I was off ALL of my medicine AND the C-Pap machine. I couldn’t believe it! Overall, I have forever lost 110 pounds…it’s been 7 years and I’ve kept that weight off. 

The biggest problem I have today is the continual phone calls from modeling agencies. 🙂

I would do it all over again. Thank you BeLiteWeight and Dr. Rodriguez!
