HI! Im leaving Monday for the SLEEVE in Tijuana!!!

HI! Im leaving Monday for the SLEEVE in Tijuana!!!

Postby SoBeverlyHills » Mon Jun 16, 2008 4:30 pm

Hi Everybody!

Well After 10 years of tring to keep these damn 40 pounds off, there finally came a weight loss surgery that I like and know will work for me!

I never liked the idea of the band and since I live in LA I know soooo many of my friends and co workers that were only 30 to 40 pounds overweight and got the band in Mexico but it takes so much up keep and there are alot of problems with slippage, cor. etc. so I always passed on it.

Well I have an identical twin sister and were 5'8" and she's never had any kids (so never streched her stomach out, ya know that capacity to overeat) and has always been sexy thin at 1151bs. I know that seems skinny but this is LA and also she's so much healthier than me, no high blood preasure, no high chloesterol and soooo much more energy. Not to mention all the guys love her!

And the heart disease runs in our family so strongly, our unlce just died of a heart attack at 48!!

So a few of our friends went to this Dr. in Tijuana for the gastric sleeve and look and feel fabulous!!!

So Im going now! This time I wont re-stretch my stomach out after a few years by over eating.

Any questions, just ask! :D

Well congrats Beverlyhills. I'm so happy for you. I know you won't regret it but I know you must be nervous. If you don't mind would you be willing to share what your costs will be and if you are going to Cosmed or where? I'm inquiring for my daughter since that's just about what she needs to lose. I dont' know much about the difference between the band and the sleeve so if you could describe a little of that to me too I'd really appreciate it. Many thanks. And best of luck. So exciting!
