The data from Erica’s weight loss is only for informational use only. Success for individuals will depend on many factors including, activity levels, surgery type, diet (especially initial postoperative diet), supplementation and more.

    You look amazing. I always wanted to be an “after” weight loss photo, still stuck in the “before “. Does the staff speak English? Also did you stay in Mexico right after surgery or did you go home and return a day or 2 later?
