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.

What a Rollercoaster Ride
posted 2/4/13 10:09 am

Again,

I have been away for a few weeks but I think of you all the time...I feel responsible to "keep it real."  I'm so perplexed at the number of individuals who still feel the need to alter the truth as it pertains to their weight loss issues....this is not easy! Once you can conquer that, the healing begins..be real with your feelings..this is not a quick fix and you cannot afford to compare yourself to others...we all carry our weight different, therefore we will lose it different...I see a size 6 totally different than "my" 6's...for whatever reason, my 6's seem BIG...its all how you look at it..learn to have fun and enjoy this journey, if not it will consume you!!!

I've started my coaching practice and I love it..I'm also in the thick of starting a trucking company...I absolutely love it!! Do something you never have before...I must admit, the weight loss gives you a new lease on things...skinny is not where you want to be...healthy is and it doesn't start with what you look like, its starts with what you see...we all have a choice to look at things from the good, bad, or ugly side...they all are equal so that being the case choose to find the good in every situation...it takes less energy and effort...

Be blessed and encouraged to do things and see things as you have never before in life.....
