Surgeon Testimonial

Dana Lindsay, M.D.
My first impression of Dr. Lindsay is that she is a very strong woman and person. She has amazing confidence and knowledge. She seems to be very feeling and understanding. I could sit and listen to her talk all day she is great. I feel that I will be in great hands when I have my surgery, I am not worried.rnrnI loved my surgeon. her staff is very nice and helpful. I was completely relaxed before and after my surgery. She visited me in the hospital and had an answer to all of my questions. She is very encouraging and concerned about my welfare. Overall I would not have picked anyone else! I wasn't that impressed with the day shift hospital staff but the night shift was wonderful!! I would do it again!!

This surgery is something that used to be a dream. My friend and I used to talk about it like hitting the lottery. Something you wish would happen but know never will. Now my friend is 2 1/2 years post op and it beautiful, and I am 3 weeks post op and doing great. If you want it bad enough find a way to make it happen! Don't give up and don't give in!  Now if i could just hit it big on the lottery!!! lol  ya never know. I have won already !!

well as I said in my updated profile...I am engaged to my best friend...we have been together for 3 yrs now...we have our issues but I wouldn't trade him for anything...we decided to get pregnant...since I had my tubes tied years ago...we did IVF..which was very quick and easy for us...I gave birth to 2 healthy baby boys on April 4th, 2012...It was more joy then I have ever had since my first 3 children and grandbabies but extra special because I never dreamed I would be starting over again and having more babies...now my grandkids are older then my two youngest...lol...so now I am grandmamommy...lol...its easier. Israel works hard for us we are getting ready to buy a house...our lives aren't perfect...but we are happy and in love...and I pray that it stays that way...I never did reach my goal weight...that is still a work in progress....but I will get there and I look and feel better then I have felt in my life in a long time !!

Ok I am @ 228, and I am so happy. I had my turn with the flu and it was terrible, I hope it's all over. I also had that awful cold that was going around. I have my 6th month check up on November 10th. I am looking forward to it, and think that I am doing well. I kept pouting about hitting the plaques, and all of a sudden I start dropping again. I am so looking forward to a size 14...lol. I am on a mission. How is everyone doing? Anyone needs to talk, feel free to message me. I am also on www.myspace.com/la_gata_lopez and on facebook under the same username. I check those most often on my cell. Good luck everyone.

my crazy life
September 29, 2009 2:08 am
Ok I have been having car trouble forever now!! I may have it all finished this week but now my brakes are bad and I need new ones plus the rotors!! Then the other day when it was pouring rain my tire was half flat and my boyfriend had to get out and air it up! So what now ? new tires, Cr@p! Then this past Monday night, my favorite aunt who was like a grandma to me passed away and now I have to go to the showing and funeral Friday and in order to go I had to switch shifts with a girl at work and work her 14 hours tomorrow in order to get off for Friday !! UUHHGGG god !! What ever happened to funeral leave?? I'm so sick of this year, I am doing ok from my surgery but it doesn't seem like my weight is coming off very fast. Everyone says that I am losing normally but I want it all gone now!! lol Going out Friday night to Caddies to let loose. I need to dance and have fun, but I have to get my outfit together, get my car all fixed and cleaned before Friday!! Wish me luck!!

Ok...I'm @ 238 !! I am so happy! I have been shopping for a few tops and new shoes and bra's and panties. I have only bought 2 pair of jeans and they are both too big for me now and like brand new! Most of my clothes have been given to me by my friends that have had the surgery too and it has been wonderful. I got a new sweater jacket too, which I desperately needed. I am cold almost all of the time now..I guess my body is trying to ajust to the shedding...lol. I am going to Xfest Saturday and can not wait. Everything seems to be going well and me and my man and doing great.

My Story

 My name is Leah, and I have 3 kids and 2 grandkids and one more on the way!! I am now getting divorced, which is so sad but I can't take it any more. I have a new man in my life and I love him. He was always there defending me and being a wonderful friend that I never knew how he felt until my husband and I decided to get divorced. Now he and I are together as much as we possible can...lol he is very mild tempered and quiet and thoughtful. He loves my full figured body but says he will love me when I shrink too..lol..

ok...update...I now have 5 kids....and 4 grandkids...one of my grandsons passed away SIDS...it was sudden and awful...nearly killed us all...I am living with the same man...we just had twins 4 months ago..I am so happy!!  The boys are doing great and growing fast...Israel is an awesome daddy and loves his babys very much !
