    Kendra, Beautiful then & Beautiful Now~ Look @ you ..you go girl!
  6. I finally made my goal weight but I am certain I am not done losing weight. I am hitting the gym harder, working on strength and conditioning! so excited to be a size 3 and 125 pounds. Never thought I would be here!
  7. I am down to 133 pounds. I am so excited I never thought I would be this small again Its been so long. It feels so surreal. Anyone can do this. Its so easy!
  8. I am so excited!! I had my surgery on March 14, 2014 and I am down a total of 67 pounds!!! I am a size 3 or 5 depending on the make of the clothing. My family couldn't be more happy for me, I couldn't be more happy for me. Its like a second chance at life. I am in the gym 5 days a week, I have more energy then ever, I am doing my best to eat right although I admit I have fallen of the wagon from time to time but not often. A cookie here and there. I know that I can't eat the same because it will lead me back to the same place. I am happy because now my entire family is focused on eating well and fitness. I really thank Dr. Almanza for what he has done for me and thank the entire medical weight loss team!!
  9. So excited about losing a whole 18 pounds since surgery, It seems the struggle is over, I am now enjoying pureed meat...yummy, soups, yogurts and cottage cheese!! I never truly appreciated these types of foods. But I am just thankful that I get to eat them now. lol

    Congratulations! I had the surgery the same day as you in Mexico with Doctor Lopez- got on scale first time today and down 9 lbs. Pleasantly surprised because I didn't feel like I lost anything, and have been very bloated. 12 lbs is great!
  11. Wow is all I can say 12 pounds down and I'm post op day 5!!
  12. Well I was sleeved on March 14, now the journey begins!! So far it's been ok. Not all peaches and creams. Drinking is getting easier day by day. I am able to drink 8 oz of water in a day and at least 2-3 oz of some other liquid, 2-3 spoons of broth. I'm sure it will pick up. Tolerating everything well. If all goes well I should progress on course. I am however drinking water through the night as well.
  13. Super surprised I survived my liquid diet with out cheating once. Go me!!!
  14. On my way to TJ flight leaves in 2 hours!!! Surgery tomorrow, excited about my journey and BFFL will be at my side.
  15. I was asked to do a 3 day pre-op but I am going to do a 5 day pre-op. Today is the first day of my pre-op diet. It went fairly well. I didn't cheat. So that was awesome, I did have some carbs ( unsweet tea with Lemonade mixed for a little taste). Otherwise, I had broth and wontons soup without the wontons. I also had several bottles of water. feeling a little hungry, but not too much. I have the tremors and shakes.. I hope this passes soon. Surgery on Friday...yay! I would sincerely appreciate any tips.

Got my date!

by kendraavant_ortiz on 01-17-2014 at 09:38 PM
Hi everybody.

I paid my deposit and my date is set for April 7, 2014. I am super excited. My family is supportive. I am so ready for a new me. I can't wait to start my journey. I have already started buying my protein supplements. I saw the Isopur drinks and was wondering if anybody knew if they were good. They look tasty.
