Two years ago I started to look for information about WLS. I wasn't sure about this, but now I am. I made an App with my PCP, so wish me luck.

I went to my PCP, he agreed with me about the WLS. He gave me the referral for the surgeon.

I receive a call from the surgeon office. My app is on Oct 5.



I went to the surgeon, he is very nice. He also has the surgery, so he knows what he is talking about.

Today is my one-year anniversary. Oh my God, what a year. 365 days ago, I was 265, today I am 168. I learn a lot during this year and I am more than sure that I still have much more to learn. I lost 97 pounds but I gain about 100 of friends. If I do not lost any more is ok but if I loose at least eight more pounds that would be great. I am not looking for be like a super model I just want to feel happy about myself and I already have that. I want to be healthy for my kids and beautiful for my GI Joe (he found me beautiful 97 pound ago so that was never a problem) lol. Well I am running out of English words so I better stop lol.

Thank you for all your support. Especially to “Pichy” my GI JOE who support me all the way.

What a day !!

Today is been a very intensive day for me. I start this morning in a Total Conditioning camp (OH MY GOD)  is like a boot camp. They measures me today and do all the introduction to the program, that will include a 2 mile run, rucksacks march and all those Army things . I am very happy and very tired. My day does not end there, at 4:00 I had my 1-year check, well I got a new DR, and she is a wonderful very nice woman. She is married to a “Latino” so we start talking about that. We end talking about my big pannus , she took a look and send me direct to the plastic surgeon for request to my insurance the panniculectomy ( wow huge word) . She said that I will not have any problem with my insurance (I hope so). So I not just have my check up I walk out with a referral.
