    How did everything go purple queen? Give me the details when you get some time.
  6. Hi Teriona, I am still nervous & excited. Not that nervous really. As I sit here in Phoenix, it's more of a surreal feeling that this is really about to happen for me. Well we're about to board for San Diego. Thanks so much for the sharing & caring! Tijuana here I come!

    Hello beautiful! You will be fine! It is okay to be nervous and all of the above, but they take very very good care of you there. I went by myself and I was fine. Just bring your own wash cloth for the hotel. Keep me posted and thanks you!
  8. Hi Purple Queen. I also am having surgery with Dr. Velasquez. I also need to lose about the same weight. How tall are you? I'm only 5'2". Good luck and I will be following your journey. Its going to be a great adventure. Na1

About Purple Queen

Basic Information

About Purple Queen
Sleeved or not sleeved:
I have had a gastric sleeve.
Biography:
I love being self-employed as an Independent Mary Kay Beauty Consultant. I am married to a wonderful man who found me after 25 years when we dated in high school.

I was diagnosed with fibromyalgia a few years ago & take medications to control the pain. Unfortunately I have gained a tremendous amount of weight, mostly due to the medications. I had an accident before going to college that resulted in back issues; and I have had several car accidents over the years that have increased the back issues. With the weight gain, I can't walk very far without having to rest or sit down to stop my back from hurting. It interferes with my house work, errands, activities and my Mary Kay business to be out meeting people.

I am so tired of looking at myself in the mirror and saying "this cannot be me!" I considered this surgery 2 years ago, but I still could function well enough & did not weigh this much. Now, I want to get my life back with energy & abilities. I want to roller-skate without my back giving out on me. So forth and so on is why I have decided to have this surgery & why I made the decision in 2 days to book my appointment without hesitancy.
Location:
Conyers, GA
Interests:
I love to worship the Lord, ride my purple motorcylce and rollerskate.
Occupation:
Self-Employed Mary Kay Beauty Consultant
Name:
Angelia Byrd
Gastric Sleeve Surgeon:
Dr. Velasquez
Surgery date:
2016-03-15

11 DAYS POST OP & MY FIRST BLOG SINCE SURGERY 3-15-16

Hi all past and future Gastric Sleevers! I am very proud to say I am now a Gastric Sleever & very proud of this as well as the choice to have it done in Tijuana, Mexico.! I will do my best to recount to you my experience as best I can from the day before surgery through today.

First day of pre-op diet

by Purple Queen on 03-09-2016 at 05:37 PM
So today is my first day on my Pre-Op Diet and it hasn't been quite as bad as I thought it would be. So let's be honest, I was dreading it!!! I have been eating salads, fish & just trying to eat healthier. Then last week I had an epiphany, girl you will not have solid food for awhile! So I decided to begin to enjoy my favorite foods. I did not go over board, but up until last night I was trying to get what I could in. Sorry, just have to tell the truth & shame the devil.

My beginning as a future gastric sleever

by Purple Queen on 03-04-2016 at 02:05 PM
So I have never "blogged" before, but I want to do this for all of those who will come after me & prayerfully it will give some insight into one of the most major decisions of your life.

Growing up, my dad nicknamed me "fats" and "high pockets". These are not positive & affirming words to call a child. I grew up always with an unhealthy image of myself as being fat...the sad part is that looking back, I was not fat. However, I did eventually
