    Thank you. Will keep you updated.
  4. I have had to go through a 6 month process so I've been watching what I eat and learning new habits in that time. I start the pre op liquid diet on Aug 5th.
    Have a great day!

    I'm doing very well! I went to my family dr yesterday and my weight according to their scale was 208 which is down from 286 last April/May when I had my first apt with the surgeon. I'm walking with some small hand weights every evening, can pretty much eat anything- just way less of it and am finally making smarter food decisions.
    How are you doing??

    Thank you for the welcome Rayer,
    I am so, so disappointed and I did it to myself.
    I knew getting credit for procedure would be denied. Just had to try!
    Know of any banks that will fund or approve me for the procedure?
    Do you have any rich friends? LOL

Tomorrow's the start of the one week countdown

by Rayer on 08-04-2015 at 02:26 PM
I'm scared, excited, nervous, hopeful, anxious, willing and ready!! Tomorrow starts the first day of my liquid only diet and I'm starting to feel like this is really happening now. It's been 6 months in the making and I can't believe in 8 days I'll be sleeved. I've made some positive changes in my behaviour over the past several months but I'm thinking I should have done more. I've learned a lot so hopefully that counts because starting tomorrow, I'll have to really apply everything I've learned

Counting down

by Rayer on 02-16-2015 at 11:12 AM

2015 is the year of change. In January I had my first group meeting for the overview given by my surgeon. After him explaining the different types of bariatric surgery, I chose to have the sleeve gastrectomy. As required by my insurance company, I have to meet with either my PCP, or nutritionist, that works closley with my surgeon, every month, for 6 months. During this time there are several classes that I must attend to help me understand and educate me on this life changing journey.
