MY VSG DOCTOR

I was sleeved on May 3rd, 2013 by Dr. Jaime Ponce De Leon in Tijuana, MX. If you're self-pay and want to find a good but cheap doctor, i HIGHLY recommend him and his staff. He has over 20 years of experience so i felt really comfortable going to him. The staff was amazing and very accommodating.

"One mistake does not have to rule a person’s entire life. "

I may be stepping on some toes this morning but this needs to be said. I know a lot of us had this surgery to lose weight but I don’t know if we all grasp that in order to keep the weight off for the rest of our lives, we need to maintain the healthy lifestyle we adopted post- op. A lot of us reach our goal weight and instantly become complacent and lazy. We alienate or no longer put emphasis on our healthy practices once we reach a weight we’re happy with. In my opinion, If the person who lost weight without surgery can maintain their weight loss, why shouldn’t or can’t we? What makes us better than everyone else? Why do we hear that Suzy, Betty or John gained all the weight back years later? This surgery is NOT a miracle pill. It won’t keep you skinny for life. You need to work out, eat right, and live well in order for it to work in your favor indefinitely. In my mind, I see it like this, why on earth would I want to jeopardize my new body, healthier lifestyle, and happier life just for the sake of FOOD. Isn’t my addiction to food what got me here in the first place? It’s not easy but maintaining this lifestyle LONG- TERM will do nothing but benefit us. The point I’m trying to make is this, I don’t want any of us becoming statistics and reverting back to who we were pre-op. That was a dark place for each and every single one of us so, why go back? Let’s work on looking being our goal weight. Let’s not give this journey an expiration date. Make this journey last a lifetime. The ultimate reward will be an extended and happier life. #vsg #vsginstacrew #rny #lapband #bariatricsurgery #weightloss #wls #makingchanges #notquitting
