Hello everyone, well I'm new here! I'm a So Cal Kaiser member. Done with my Options classes which have been very informative. Saw the therapist last week (mandatory) labs have been done. Waiting to see the surgeon hopefully by next week then I will get my surgery date at that time to get sleeved. Words can not explain the excitemnet I feel for a new start and new direction in life. I'm 5'6 1/2 305lbs I have been a plus size woman my entire adult life. I'm done with the up and down diets done and tried them ALL. I'm 37 with an 18yr old son, I'm ready to enjoy life travel more & just see what the future holds. This website has been a great source of information and looks to give alot of support. While the program with Kaiser has been great, 3mths of classes and a wonderful staff I feel that acutally connecting with those who have been thru it puts it all into perspective. So anyway I should be getting sleeved sometime in February 2012...nervous but can't wait!!!
