Hello - I don't know where else to turn. I'm hoping someone can help shed some light on my problem.

I am 45 (in 2 weeks) and had the gastric bypass revision on July 17th of this year. Since then, roughly 6 weeks ago, I have lost 15lbs. ... wel

Hello! On January 28, 2016, a year ago, I had my surgery with Dr. Rodriguez and Dr. Elmo via BeLite Weight. I have lost 130.5 pounds in a year. To say that I am thrilled is an understatement. I started at 315lbs after pre-op diet (330lbs before) and I'

Hi everyone - I was trolling these boards before I got my surgery trying to decide if going to Mexico was a good idea. I wanted to post an update.

The Good:

-To date I have lost right around 100lbs and next week (the 28th) is my 7 month

Am I supposed to still be hungry? Cuz I am... I feel like I could eat a lot more than I thought I should be able to. I couldn't eat a lot at first, but I'm guessing that was due to swelling and/or inflammation in the area. Now I can drink plenty of flu

I'm 9 days post op and my body shivers inside every time we pass a Starbucks. The morning routine isn't the same without the sensual sounds of water rushing past those tiny, gravelly coffee beans shooting out liquid morning gold into a warm and percola

7 days from today I will be sitting in a Mexican hospital awaiting life changing surgery from a surgeon I've never met before. The freakout is unreal right now but at the same time I'm excited (how does that work!!!??)!  Our passports were back in reco

Oh hey! I see you're having surgery with the same surgeon - thank you so much for contacting me! You'll be recovering as I'll be headed down :) I arrive on the 27th and have surgery on the 28th - - small world!! :) It'll be with Dr. Rodriquez and staff as well. So yea - you must be as flipped out as I am lol but I'm sure it'll be okay. If there's some way for me to say hi while there, I will! :)

10 more days! You must be nervous but you'll get through it. Just think about the moment you wake up and you crack open one eye and you think to yourself, 'oh thank goodness, im here!' Almost there! Cheers!

WLS in 3 weeks, 2 days - and I'm scared to death! I have been waiting for this 25+ years, always a struggle with my stupid weight. Job after job I went looking for the insurance plan which would even consider this surgery and never have I found one (ac

So here it is! I got approved through BeLite Weight for Gastric Sleeve. I'm sooo excited and scared at the same time. I've been wanting weight loss surgery for 20 years and finally I'm getting it. Now part of me is thinking, "EEP what did you get yours

Have any of you had any issues flying to your destination as obese folks? I didn't even think about this until now and about to schedule my surgery. Did any of you have to purchase a second seat? The last time I flew I wasn't tiny but I wasn't this big
