Dr.Peter's is amazing, I went to his seminar and was impressed from the moment he began speaking...he also did my surgery consult and I absolutly love him and my team...the whole approach that is used at Chritiana where Im having my surgery is amazing...the whole program itself has come a long way and I feel completely ready and blessed on how things have worked out so far...every question is answered and someone is always there to support you...it's not a fly in and out place and then your on your own...the follow up care is incrediable and I know Im in great hands for sure...not to mention he is the head of surgery so that makes me even more comfortable...He is completely honest and straight to the point and I have heard nothing but amazing things about him from his other patients...I would recomend him to anyone...

Wow where do I begin...weight and body image has been a life long issue for me. Since I was a very small child. I come from a Puerto Rican family who everyone knows Puerto Ricans celebrate everything with food...there is always a reason to have a party and eat. I am very proud of my heritage and my family but at the same time it has been part of my downfall...All my life I knew I had weight problems but the truth is what everyone saw on the outside isn't what I felt like on the inside...I still have days when I don't feel like I am truely as big as I look or am, but it's right there if I just look in the mirror. The struggles I have endured through out my life because of this demon have been nothing short of a blessing in disguise even though I have had times where I just wanted to die it has also helped me be the person I am today....It is so hard for people around you to truely understand what it's like because everyone has their own assumptions as to why I got this way or how is it even possible to let myself get this big...They think they know but they have no idea! The worset part is always being told how beautiful you are or what a pretty face but you know if you only lost weight...Then what I would be a better person, you might love me more, or it may change who I am. Well you know what maybe yeah I might have a little more cofidence or not be so depressed at times....but I am me inside and out not because of my size but because of who I am and what my creator made me...I am a loving, kind hearted person who looks for the good in all people and no matter what do my best never to judge because everyone in this life is facing some sort of struggle and who am I to say I am better than anyone in any way....The thing is no matter how much weight I loose or what I change on the outside what remains on the inside ecspecially the scars will always be there and nothing can change that...Now am bitter because of that no not at all because for some reason it has allowed me to see things in a way many don't and has also allowed me to never judged a book by it's cover...because truth be told when I finally reach my goal...people are always going to find something to complain about and bottom line is you just can't make everyone happy and those who walk around constantly critizing others for whatever flaw they may have only do so because they are very insecure themselves no matter how put togther they are on the outside...True beauty sincerely comes from within and can be seen without the human eye...I have been fortunate enough in my life to have met some people who truely love me and accept me for who I am and have been able to see past the exterior and truely recognize the person with in...at the same time I have also endured many very painful situations and relationships including my 9 year marriage in which I have been rediculed, abused emotionally, verbally and even physically that sometimes I just don't know that even if I reach my goal I will ever heal from, but what I do know is that everything happens for a reason...and that yes we all make mistakes in our lives, make choices that we shouldn't and have things we wish we could have done differently...I am no stranger to that and nor do I excuse some of my behaviors at times because of it...all I can do is hope that with each passing day I become stronger and find a way to better myself inside and out so that if I do anything before I leave this earth is that I made a difference even if only in a small way or to one person....Life is entirely to short to live it with regrets or what could have beens...I can only move forward and continue to grow and hope that I can become a better person and enjoy the beauty of life...which isn't so much about being a certain size or what others think of me or the materials things I have but by the measures of how much love I have to give and the moments that take my breathe away...
