[color=#EE82EE][size=5][font=comic sans ms, cursive]Not much to say about my story right now because I'm not sure if I will be approved for the band but I'm in the Heads up Program through my insurance, my first screening was July 2nd and I started my 2 week liquid diet on July 6th. I have my second screening this Friday, July 20th, hopefully I'll get a call back after that appointment soon telling me I'm approved for the surgury until then I'm praying :).[/font][/size][/color]

[color=#EE82EE][size=5][font=comic sans ms, cursive]I received the phone call Thursday, August 9th that I was approved for the band surgery, I have my first appt. Wednesday, August 15th, not sure when the surgery will be but I do know it will be before August 30th YAY!!! I'm still praying that everything will be good with me and that I successfully lose this weight for good. :)[/font][/size][/color]

[color=#EE82EE][size=5][font=comic sans ms, cursive]I have my pre-op Friday, August 24th @ 9am and my surgery date is August 29th...YAY!!!! I want to be a success story sooooo badly I will keep praying for it. :)[/font][/size][/color]

[color=#EE82EE][size=5][font=comic sans ms, cursive]Upper GI went well Friday, I have a tiny hernia but it may not need to be touch (hoping). Due to the hurricane coming my way I had to reschedule my surgery to September 11th sucks but praying everything will go well. :)[/font][/size][/color]

[color=#EE82EE][size=5][font=comic sans ms, cursive]Everything went will, today is September 17th and I'm feeling pretty good. I still have slight pain in shoulders and chest but nothing I can't handle. I really started feeling good maybe 3 days after the surgery. It's not a bad surgery I'm back at work and just trying to feel 100% soon. :)[/font][/size][/color]
