One Week Till Surgery - Mexico, MX

I am hopeful, and scared. I am 40 years old and have always been overweight. But in January I hit my all time high of 280. It broke me, no more; this weight has to come off! I have a beautiful daughter whom is almost 9, when I delivered her I went into heart failure, later found out it was from rheumatic fever as a child. I need to drop this weight and become an active family. My husband is excited for the future possibilities. I'm a big fan of Tosca Reno and her clean eating books. I plan to eat as clean as I can and exercise with yoga. Now I am eating 2 salads and 2 protein shakes. Tuesday I go on clear liquids. Praying for success!

Let us know how it went ... wish you the best
Good luck butterfly dreamer. I hope it all goes well and you come out happier and healthier.

I'm self pay, so I decided to go to mexico, my understanding is that there will be 3 doctors in the operating room when I have my surgery, it is in a hospital and they have been doing it for over 10 years.
