Surgeon Testimonial

Jorge Acosta, MD
My first impression of Dr. Acosta was that of a surgeon who has a lot of experience, he conducted himself in a very professional manner and was very understanding of my situation. He was very thorough he asked all the questions that a Dr. should ask. I was not sure as to what procedure I wanted to do. I wanted to do the lap band at first but then there was the RNY which sounds wonderful because the weight comes off faster but more risk. He told me that I would do well with either one and at first I leaned towards the RNY, but then lol at the last minute I changed my mind, and opted for the banding instead. Dr. Acosta did not get upset in any way and was very understanding of my feelings about each one. His office is very friendly, Deborah and Becky are wonderful, any time that I had a question they called me back within a day. Deborah has had WLS as well and is very understanding. Dr. Acosta makes you do your part so if you think you can get one over on him don’t even try lol I learned that the hard way. I adore him simply because he did not allow me any excuses which made me realize that I still had some work to do on myself. I would rate Dr. Acosta an A++ for competence and bedside manner. I look forward to my aftercare and I know that I am in good hands.

Week 6 I ran....
posted 5/19/09 6:39 am
Way crazy I know but yesterday I ran for the first time in god knows how long!! It probably wasn't pretty, and looked like a deformed elephant but I did it and that's all that counts! Since February I have lost 45 lbs with 26 of those lbs coming off since surgery. I don't regret my band, I am falling in love with it more and more every day. Last weekend at a cook out my niece looked at my plate and asked me "is that all your going to eat?" I looked at my plate and smiled..."yeah, aunty needs to shrink... why?" and she says "your not fat aunty your perfect"  OMG what else can I say it left me speechless.

I am leaving to Texas on Thursday morning to get my first fill!!!!!!! Yeah!!!! I'm excited but nervous, of course because I have not experienced this yet. I am looking forward to losing more weight, I have not lost anything this week so it will be a welcomed change.

I discovered these pure protein bars, you can buy them at wal-mart. They are heavenly and when you eat them you feel like you are being very naughty!! I got the chocolate peanut butter ones OMG  Most of all I was tired of drinking my protein..I would rather eat it.

Life with the band is becoming routine and thank god because in the beginning I was afraid I would fail because I did not know how to do this, but with a little time and practice I've learned and I am looking forward to the rest of my life....Thank You BAND!!
