I am getting ready to have my 2nd pre-op appointment tomorrow (where I turn in all my pre-op testing documents). I think I am ready but still have some reservations. I know I must loose the weight - my legs hurt all the time (knees and ankles), I also have high blood pressure and evevated sugar (pre-diabetic). I don't want to die like my Father did a year ago - too much weight all his life. I am going to need support as I am an emotional eater and really enjoy food. I am also in search of a good tasting protein drink - so far they all taste awful.
