countdown to DR

My digital countdown

changed my date

Im booked for March 2nd 2016. I had to change it since my daughter got diagnosed with type 1 diabetes. But its coming soon!! Hope to have amazing results since im obsessed with what ive been seeing....????

Almonte Barbie 2be MARCH2,2016

Ok... here goes. Ive written reviews before & its a little complicated. Ive lost -120lbs with my gastric sleeve that was preformed with "ALIGHTERME" IN TIJUANA MEXICO. I USED TO BE A SIZE 22-24 3X 321LBS. I WAS EXHAUSTED EMBARRASSED AND DISGUSTED WITH MYSELF. Now i feel Blessed & Amazing! Its time for a changed! Ive never been this tiny since in my teens. Im 33 married with 5 children. I am going with Dr. Fatima Almonte in SDQ!!! Ive researched alot and im very impressed with all her dolls. Including some of my good friends that look absolutely amazing!! Well its my turn!! And March 2nd cant come any sooner!!!!

so time is going quickly

Cant believe how quickly time is flying i only have like 11wks till i leave to DR. Im flying out March 1st 2016 omg. Im seriously super nervous and anxious. I just wana wake up and be transformed already. Hello can March 2nd be here already. Btw for my vsg or rny girls I've gained 15lbs since surgery. Im sure its just stress and the holiday drama lol...

03-02-16 can't come any sooner!

Omggg. Im ecstatic my date is approaching very soon and Lesley has kept me up to date and she is amazing. Any little question i have she answers i seriously cant wait to hug her and tell her how much i appreciate her for keeping me sane and this point of my soon to be transformation. So ima keep u guys updated as much as i can 11wks and counting dolls!! Let the count down begin.... DR here i come. I see it like this. I was American made with my puerto rican parts reborn with a mexican stomach (sleevie) and im going to be dominican made... (on point) jiji... yay...

6.5 weeks to go! Omgoodness

So its down to 6.5 weeks till the infamous Almonte transforms my body. Im beyond excited. But my nervous have kicked it 100% and ive gained like 15lbs... ???? but im thinking well she can always stick that 15lbs in my ass!! Lmfaoooo. Jk! But seriously ive gained. Im just a mess of nerves. I cant imagine what i will feel when im 1week till DR.. so yea just a little update. Soon is coming sooner then i thought.... its been a year since i had to reschedule. So this is really exciting for me... btw my Hemo is 13.5. So thats good. Cuz in order to get any surgery it must be 12+ but mines must remain 13 to get all i want.... so ttyladies later.... xo...

oh wait another health concern

So for some that follow me. I have 2 Diabetic children a 5yr old he was diagnosed when he was 1yrs old... and my 12yr old she was diagnosed Nov. Of last year. And unfortunately my other 5yr old (they are twin boys) got diagnosed last month Dec. 27th... its soooo depressing and stressful. So yea just wanted to update on that. Life isnt easy but im blessed with my kids.... waiting on my husband's to get tested cuz he is showing signs of diabetes also... talk about a sweet family????
