Mexico Bariatric Center® (MBC) has been offering people who are struggling with weight an affordable yet reliable sleeve surgery. MBC has helped 20,000+ patients with or without insurance overcome diabesity and renew their lives!
Here is the story of Barbara, who chose MBC for her weight loss journey! Let’s read her story.
Barbara’s Weight Loss Journey
Hello, my name is Barbara! I have struggled with being overweight in the past, which often left me feeling unmotivated to engage in any family activities. My low mood would sometimes lead me to turn to food for comfort. I decided on getting bariatric surgery after doing research because I was tired of not making progress in my life. It’s been well over one year since getting the gastric sleeve (VSG). I have had some challenges along my weight loss journey, but I would not change anything.
I chose Mexico Bariatric Center because several people I know have experienced success. I was motivated and desired to make significant changes in my life, including improving my health and fitness. I wanted to live longer and be present for my grandkids as they grew up.
My Experience in Mexico
I got my gastric sleeve done by Dr. Alejandro Gutierrez in November of 2021. I’m so proud of myself!! If you’re on the fence about the surgery, do it. I promise you won’t regret it. Just follow the process! It works! Here are some photos of me from the past until now. I’m definitely more motivated to take pictures after my weight loss.
Starting Weight: 278 lbs
Current Weight: 131 lbs
Goal Weight: 140 lbs
My Life After Surgery
I am thrilled to share that I have felt way more energized since my weight loss. I can participate in more activities with my grown-up kids and my grandkids. At times, I catch a glimpse of myself in the mirror while walking by and have to take a double-take because the reflection is unbelievable! My confidence and love for myself are also reflected in my husband’s attraction towards me as well. I have gone from wearing a size 22 plus pants to a 4/6 or a 24 waist, a 2X shirt to a small, and a 2X coat to a small coat!
