I got the call today! Surgery has been approved and I scheduled for February 28th. After seeing many family members and friends successfully lose their weight with the gastric bypass I decided it was worth a try. I started the journey in late July. I have a Thyroid condition and it makes losing weight nearly impossible. I tried dieting, just to get discourage when no matter how little I ate my body would get used to it and I would only lose a few pounds and gain it back. When I checked into the gastric bypass I asked will I lose the weight (due to lack of metabolism) I was assured that, yes I will be able to lose weight. I'm excited and hope this next month flies by!!
