4 kids, no exercise, bad eating has ruined my body. I am 235 lbs and 5'4" tall. I have consulted 2 Dr.'s, Dra Yily and Dr. Hernandez. Both Dr.'s told me I need to lose 35 lbs in order to have the surgery. So, This is the beginning of my weight loss journey. I have seen a woman that got the surgery at my size and I think it turned out bad. She was happy and that's all that matters but for myself. I was looking for a leaner look. I like both Dr.'s work but I am leaning towards Dr. Hernandez. He makes you stay in the DR for 11 nights and I think that may be a good idea. I haven't gotten a quote from him yet but I know I can have my weight down by the desired date of surgery which will be FEB. 2015. If any one has any suggestion about a exercise plan or vitamin supplement please comment I would like to get the weight of by Nov. 2014 so I can schedule my surgery and send in my deposit.
