While 2020 was a bad year in other ways, it was wonderful for my health. I had time to focus on my eating and exercise. I started the year 103 pounds heavier. I could not have done this without the sleeve. The food part of losing weight has always been the hardest for me. It is so hard to continue to eat healthy when life throws you curve balls. I have lost weight before, but I've never been able to keep it off. In addition to eating healthy, I have worked my butt off exercising (literally). I started running, light weight training, and yoga. I very rarely miss a day working out. I feel so good and I'm so grateful for Dr. Almanza and his team for changing my life. It definitely isn't easy, but every bit has been so worth it. I love my new body and active lifestyle!
