Surgeon Testimonial

Alejandro Aguirre M.D.
My first impression of Dr. Aguirre was pure comfort. From the moment we met I was at ease. The staff all worked with me very well and even though I hardly know any spanish they never seemed frustrated with me, it was like they understood exactly what I was saying...Dr Aguirre and the 2 other doctors have been to see me everyday. I would give him a 10 every time. My incision was sticted with such a delicate hand, I can imagine the scar will be hardly noticable once I'm healed. Dr. Aguirre promised me this one thing, that he can not promise that I wouldn't have issues with my surgery but he did promise he would take care of me, and he did just that..He expressed the importance of sticking to the diet in order to be successful. I would do this over again a million time.

Describe your behavioral and emotional battle with weight control before learning about bariatric surgery.
I never was an emotional eater like so many struggle with. My issue was always the inactivity. I would eat and stay in the same place, day after day. Not just at home but at work, the same thing. An office with no windows, and a master suite with all the ammenities. I was a big kid and the older I got, the bigger I got not to mention the weight gain behind 3 children..an abusive husband, dealing with my history of molestation and rape...all these "weights" made dealing with my physical weight very difficult.

My 1 Month Surgiversary
posted 8/31/09 4:48 am
So today is the day that marks my 1 month surgiversary.  I am down 37 lbs and up until just this morning have I figured out how to get 40 grams of protein in before I leave the house.  I realize this thing is so psychological.  It's so hard to change sometimes.  I didn't want to drink it because it was nasty or because I could smell the protein, because neither were true.  I just didn't want to because I didn't want to.  Well, if I don't there are consequences so I might as well stop making the excuses on why I can't and figure out how I can...

This is going to be a very long week but I plan on ending it very well.  My birthday is Thursday and I'm planning on hanging out with some friends on Friday to celebrate.  I have not celebrated my birthday since I turned 30 so I'm looking forward to it...if any of you are in that Atlanta area, we will be at Taboo Two on Roswell Rd.  I've never been there and may never go again but this is where I want to hang out Friday....so come join me!

Lastly, I really miss yall...I haven't heard from too many of you lately.  My laptop was down and I had to get another one so I will be in here much more...this place is true therapy for me....Be encouraged today! Whatever your "it" is know "it" will pass....

Love Yall!
