Mom of One, 220 5'7 - Miami, FL

I did the consultation with a friend of mine at...

I did the consultation with a friend of mine at the same time and Dr. Ortega was nice and honest. I came out feeling a little sad about my body because Ortega said the fat could take a little longer to take to my body that my results could take six months and I guess cause my body is that messed up or I'm that assless and square...........or Idk. He also told me to lose 15 pounds in order to get the best result.

Please anyone need tips for weight loss

Before I got pregnant I had loss 60 pounds of weight gained after leaving high school, during pregnancy I gained 60 pounds again and 10 months later I've only lost 15-20 pounds of it. I feel like I'm going through a crisis because I feel so sad all the time and that turns into tiredness and can't get to gym as much as I want. Is there any tips you guys have? Like juicing recipes or pills or apple cider idk anything

Thinking of switching Doctors

I'm really having second thoughts about Dr Ortega, lately every review of him I see now is just always people either unhappy that he didn't insert enough fat or that they look the same. The ones that are happy don't look great in my opinion. Idk I thought I saw great reviews about him before I booked him now all I see is bad, I emailed Liz the coordinator on Saturday that I really need a consultation with Rami Ghurani I'm willing to lose the 500 down payment I already made. I just can't risk paying all this money and it not be worth it. Idk why it's hard to find honest people, when I asked Liz to see Ghurani she said he requires a lower BMI but I see him take bigger people all the time on here.
