  2. I was approved July 9th and I got my surgery date today. I will be sleeved on August 12th at noon. I'm just happy this day has come and I can actually say that I have a date. *wipes forehead* Now all I have to do is get some up to date blood work and an EKG and I will be all set for surgery!!!
  3. You look amazing, congrats!!!
  4. So today I have my 4th appointment which is my second Bariatric class. I'm excited as this only leaves me with two more sessions before my paperwork is submitted to the board for approval. This process has gone quicker than I thought it would. Oh, and I've also decided to start attending an over eaters anonymous meeting. I never really thought of myself as an over-eater, however, I do eat when I'm bored so I guess that could be considered over-eating. I hope to get to the root of the problem and find some tools that I can use now and after surgery. I don't want to get the surgery and have the same issues that I started with. I have been doing a lot of life planning over the last couple of months and I'm just ready to get everything in order. Although I haven't gotten the surgery yet, just knowing that I'm going to get it has given me a second wind to get things going in the right direction. I'll write another blog to let you know how my class went. I'm not sure what she will cover, but I think it has something to do with the things you can and cannot eat after surgery.

    I lost it!

    Isleevedit...yes, I am a Kaiser patient. I have attended the seminar at the Hospital with the surgeon that I will do my procedure. I know that he requires me to get an EKG so I'm going to get that done sometime in June. My co-worker had the same surgery in January with the surgeon I'm using and she told me everything I need to do prior.
