  1. So sorry ai have not logged in for a while mainly because of life...LOL
    I am 5 pounds from goal something I should have reached a long time ago but did not.
    Acid reflux became my demise and a bad sleeve, I do not know who was at fault but I developed a pocket
    at the top of my sleeve and this cause my severe acid reflux. Maybe I stretched my sleeve at the top or maybe it was poor technique I dont know but either way I had to have a revision 4 years later. A lot has changed in that 4 years. I went from a cheerleader to a naugh sayer, mainly because I got to see things from the inside out. I loved my sleeve but it did not love me, I never gained wieght so that was good but it was bringing me to an end and well I had so much more to do in this life. I have been through so much over the last 1 1/2 years and learned a lot. I am now a bariatric nutritionist and a wellness coach and I help people with plastics along with bariatrics. I live in Tijuana now and love my new life, I will probable never move back to the states, never fit in anyways...LOL
    For those thinking of going on this new adventure to find the new healthy you just know there is a place you can go and Mexico is amazing, dont be scared be excited of the new life you have aheade of you. Take a chance life is worth living just do your resaearch.

Sleeved or not sleeved:
I have had a gastric sleeve.
I have been over weight for a while just been really healthy until I caught the flue real bad and realized when I got on the scale I had a bad weight problem so in 2003 I started the process of getting bariatric surgery in 2003 with Kaiser in Washington state. Well 2 years later and a lot of money I was still being put thru hoops and only lost 37 pounds without getting my surgery. I quit all the crazy appointments and tried on my own. I tried so many diets and put my body thru a roller coaster of ups and downs with gains and losses. I finally managed to maintain a body weight though still way over weight I decided that this was my life, very healthy just more of me to love. Well my kids grew up and I decided to change my life. They went off to college and to start their own lives but it was in another state, so I packed up and moved to Florida to start my new life in July of 2009, it took a year to get settled. At 313 lbs., I started my weight loss journey in July of 2011 with some help from a doctor. I now realize she was just lining her pocket with my money buying a ton of vitamins and lost 14 lbs in 7 months. I met Dr. Diaz in Febuary 2012 and with her help I am down to 259, 40 lbs. in 9 months. I was on phentermine but had to come off of it and went back up to 313 pounds in 4 months. We talked and both agreed that having this surgery would be a good option for me. So here I am waiting to see if my financing will go thru because my insurance does not cover anything to do with weight loss. This is crazy I want to be healthier before I have heart problems, diabetes or worse, these problems they will cover.

Looking back. Two years post-op :)

Hello my name is Stacy and I had the Vertical Gastric Sleeve done in Tijuana Mexico. Wow I feel like this is the start to a group meeting and I just took the first step. LOL

At 15 I never remember wishing to be overweight when I got older that wasn’t even a thought. I was so tiny then (5’-4” and all of 89 pounds) and never thought that the things I did then would affect me later, hey I was a teen and I was invincible. I never liked my picture being taken not even when I was thin.
