I've Lost 12 Pounds!!!!

Jan 21, 2022

I'm seriously considering a lapband revision to gastric sleeve, and I've been looking into having the procedure done in Mexico, just across the border from California. I looked into doing it here, but the out of pocket cost is astronomically high for me, running into roughly $15k, whereas in Tijuana it'll cost me approximate $5500. My mother is advising me against doing the procedure in Mexico because of all the horror stories she's heard about people having all types of surgeries done abroad. My husband is very supportive of my weight lost journey, and although he too has his reservations about me having the surgery done in Mexico, is supporting my decision. My only trepidation is the possibility of something going medically wrong. I'm still debating. Meanwhile...

I joined the gym and it's very hard to keep myself motivated. I love the water aerobics, but the class starts at 6 p.m. and I'm off from work at 3 p.m. If I drive home after fighting traffic on the freeway and spending a whole hour looking at the red lights of the cars in front of me, I don't feel like driving to the gym. I did go straight to the gym on Wednesday and walked on the treadmill for 44 minutes, walked almost 2 miles and burned 240 calories. Yay, me!!! I've also started eating healthy, again, and I'm thrilled to see that I've lost 12 pounds since January 1st. I'm down to 250 pounds. 

This is a neverending journey for me.
