Working on This Weight Loss So I Can Get This Fabulous Makeover to High Light my Life. - Dominican Republic, DO

Living life to its fullest.

I'm always watching that damn scale and its driving me nuts. Now, its on a damn stand still. I hate that, I like to see those numbers going down......LOL

I got my quote from Lesley and I'm so excited.

Tummy Tuck, Lipo sculpture, full abdomen, flanks, waist, underarm area, thighs and Breast lift. Just want time to fly by so I can get this done because I would have to make a second trip to get the BBL and full back Lipo done. You wait all your life just to get this perfect body that you always wanted and that clock is ticking so slow.....LOL
I will start buying the things that I need for my trip as of next week. I also have a great surgery buddy and we stay in contact with each other everyday on our plans and trip to the D.R.

Finally, I got my surgery date locked in. Feb. 20, 2015

Well, I sent in my deposit and my surgery date is Feb. 20, 2015. I'm working out more now and watching my diet. I want to get to at least 220. I know after surgery I'm going to lose weight and that fine but I don't want to be a small woman. I never was a small woman and I always had big bones but I just need that hour glass right side up.....LOL

When you want something so bad and you can't for it to happen.

I read so many journeys on here and the only thing I can say is I can't wait any longer. It's driving me insane. When I say this to my surgery buddy ( My dear friend ) she just laugh. I understand about the pain that I'm going to endurance but I'm ready to deal with that. As long as I have my sx buddy there, I know I'll pull through because we have each other. To the ladies that had to go alone, I know with was the longest and loneliest journey ever, by that being said, I want to thank my sx buddy ahead of time for going with me so we can share this experience together.....LOL

You are never to old to enhances your body

I'll be 56 years old soon and I feel 35. My point is, you're never to old to bring back sexy into your body and soul. I'm really looking forward to that big "56" because it bring back some wonderful memories. I've experience some wonderful things in my life and when it's my time to go home to the lord, everyone who knows me can truly say, she had a wonderful life and had everything she has every wanted. Now with this up coming surgery I will consider this as a new life beginning. When I say beginning, I mean everyday a party day for me. I always live life to its fullest, "NO DRAMA OR NO STRESS". I've met some amazing friends here and we'll be true friends to the end.

So many things are going through my mind right now.

Hearing the bad news yesterday got me down. When you hear of someone's death, you just don't know how to react to that kind of info. So many things are going through my mind right now and the only thing I can do is give thanks to God so he can watch over me and get me comfort and a peace of mind so I can go through with this sx. I think about my kids and family and how much they need me in their lives. My surgery buddy and myself talk about a lot of things to give each other comfort and have each other backs when needed. I'm praying for all of the ladies who are going to have sx and pray that you have a speedy recovery. Good luck ladies and God bless you.

I'm back with my new Gastric Sleeve

I'm back on this side again after having my gastric sleeve done in Mexico by Dr. Martinez at the O.C.C. and this was the best decision I've ever made in my life time. After one month of having the gastric sleeve, I've lose 35 lbs. and I'm feeling great.
After leaving Dominican Republic and I couldn't have my procedures done due to my EKG reading wasn't good because of high cholesterol. I decided to go to Mexico and have the Gastric Sleeve done and now that I'm losing weight, I can start planning on having my procedures in the near future in Dominican Republic or Columbia. Now, again I will continue to follow others on their journey and this is where I will make my decision. Happy to be back on this side.

I started my Gastric Sleeve journey 8/20/2015

This was the best decision I've ever made in my life.

Looking forward of my new journey

Just sitting here thinking how great I feel. After having the gastric sleeve, u continue to follow your motivators who got you to this point so u can see their improvements and therefore you are looking to gain the same level of improvements as well or better. It force you to push yourself more to reach that level of no turning back. What I gain in 4 months, I just losed that 38 lbs. in one month and a half. This is unbelievable...... SW 290...SW 277.......CW 252 .....wow, I'm down 38lbs.
Now, this is where I'm really going to work hard on and that's losing weight to get down to 220. You see, when I set pound goals to reach, I really push myself harder to reach it until I get down to 150 and that's my goal weight. Once I reach my goal weight then I will start my new journey with plastic surgery. I'm still in favor of Dr. Almonte in Dominican Republic but still checking out other doctors in Columbia. The reason why I'm still into
Dr. Almonte is because I went to Dominican Republic in February 2015, I met her and seen her work and I really love her personality and concerns about her patients. So that being said, I need to lose this weight to start that new journey.

Down 40 lbs.

Well, I'm down 40 lbs from the gastric sleeve and loving it but not being able to drink 64 oz. Of water yet is killing me. I need to drink more water but other than that I'm great. My friends here in new York sees me and they can tell I'm losing weight and wants to know what diet I'm on? I don't say anything because i don't lie and i don't need to start now. If you are a true friend then you'll know because I don't hide anything from my true friends.
Well, I'm looking forward to seeing the new weight loss next month because time is going fast. I'll keep you posted.

I can see the different

Today, I wanted to get on the scale to see my weight and I really can see the different now. Not in a million years did I think this was going to work for me and on top of that, it did and I didn't think it was going to be this easy.
