October 22, 2015 my rebirth

by Ali72 on 10-21-2016 at 11:37 AM
One year ago tomorrow my life changed for the better. I was registered and checked into McAllen Heart Hospital for Gastric Sleeve surgery. My mom, I think was more nervous than I.

I had the nurses give me a binder and that eased the pain so much. I only used it for about 10 days. So far in the past 6 weeks, I have lost 35 pounds. My blood pressure is normal and so are my sugars. That right there was my first goal, to get all that in control. Food wise, I am following the plan my dietician
