    Hi, I am just starting this process and new to the group. I will have my first appointment with my surgeon early this month and hopefully ready for surgery by the the end of April. Looking forward to any advice you can give. Have struggled with trying to lose over a 100 excess pounds for 25 years. I'm hoping I have finally made the right decision with opting for the gastric sleeve. Thank You!

    good luck on your surgery. it was the best decision I made to help myself lose weight.
  13. Wow as I wake this morning what is on my mind. gosh this is my last day of eating what do I want as my last meal ? gosh am I on death row? or dieing the way our minds work I know I should not be thinking this way. it is only food it is like meds you just need a small amout to live But in my head it is like looseing an olf friend how do you say good bye? I am sure there will be tears ups and downs all this over food.

    As of now I will pick my head up I can do this I may need some help but I am not turning back now.

    I am also thinking about going to the hosp. for my pre op x-rays ekg and blood work praying all goes well.

    thanks for letting me rant on.

    My surgery is scheduled for 2 days after yours and as I read your posts, I realize that it's a lot of the same stuff that I'm doing, thinking and preparing. I'm having a big Thanksgiving dinner for our family at our place this Sunday, but the day after Thanksgiving, I'm getting my hair done. Then, over the weekend, we are decoratoring for Christmas and even wrapping some presents. Like you, I'm just trying to make certain everything gets done while I can... then, I won't feel so selfish if I can't do much later. Good luck and keep us posted!

I now know this is going to be a little hard gosh all I want it food I keep telling my self it is all in your head works for awhile than my head says food again. not just food but bad food so far i am keeping it together. this is going to be the longest 2 weeks of my life.
