    HELLO ALL-- Some of you my beautiful fianc? had the sleeve surgery. However i am nervous about having it. I am going to start the diet as of Monday and am really scared of not being able to swallow, or not being able to get enough nutrients. I am also NERVOUS about the pain, having been through surgeries this year, shoulder, and heart cauterization. The shoulder was not pretty hurt like a bugger!! Soooooo I am having some reservations....BUTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTT I want to be thin for the first time....I have only been down to 180 once in my adult life and that was 25 years ago and I am tired of carrying the extra weight. Not to mention it is now starting to effect my health. High BP and feeling old in my bones. It is TIME to do something.... Any and all impute would be appreciated. I am currently at 255 stand 5' 11' and would like to see about 175 in weight.... Am I being unreasonable with doing this? Or is it a good thing... Thanks :lol0:
