I'm doing great feeling fantastic going on my 5 1/2 year anniversary!!! Still working on me... now I just need a tummy tuck and well honestly a mommy makeover lol. But I feel younger than I ever have in my life I'll be 42 this Friday & can't stay seated down!!
Its been 5 years since I had the gastric sleeve done in Mexico. I set out on this journey on April the 7th. I was nervous and excited all at the same time. I had some friends a couple who had gone before me and walked me through what to expect. I must say that the doctors and nurses all exceeded my expectations, and did a woderful job.
I am happy to report that I have lost a total of 148 pounds since I had the surgery. Literally a whole person!! I feel amazing!
I've walked my 1st 5k Marathon (which I never in my life time imagined I could do that). I went from wearing a size 26/28 3XL TIGHT to a 10/12 Medium. It is a great feeling to be able to walk with out back and leg pains, and to be able to actually enjoy life with my family especially outside playing basketball with my 8 year old son!!
Also how I can enjoy a theme park now & actually fit in the rides! I can now cross my legs, I get so much compliments that my confidence is at high!
I felt safe, well tended, and was back to work on Monday. I haven't had any complications! It's changed my life! if I had to do it all over again I would!
