8/23 was my 1 year surgiversary!

on 8/31/14 3:30 pm

I was considered a lightweight at the start of my journey at 233 pounds, I'm 5ft 8 in tall. I was wearing a size 20 and today I'm wearing a size 6 pants and medium tops. My weight fluctuates between 138-142lbs.

I feel amazing! I'm living my life finally! I researched bag for 8 years and saved my pennies until I was able to fly to Tijuana Mx. Best money I ever spent! Dr. Ortiz and his staff changed my life! I am so very thankful for my sleeve and this site! Without OH I might not have had this surgery. Thank you to everyone who participates on this site! I added a picture to my profile as I can't seem to load it to this post!

I'm just at the beginning of the journey- I have committed to surgery but the process will still take 4-6 month- but reading stories like yours make me so excited!! 

Congratulations!!! Thank you for the inspiration!
