Well, I've been obese for most of my life with a few years here and there at a "normal" weight. I lost 80lbs. a few years ago and gained it all back and more when I had became hypothyroid and started having fibromyalgia flares. So I promised myself if I couldn't keep the weight off this time, I would have WLS. Here I am now just a month or so away from surgery. It's been a long haul from my PCP referral to 12 weeks of classes to now. I've done everything my surgeon requires and I'm waiting for a date. I have to have my gallbladder out due to stones and pain I'm a bit scared, nervous, but very excited too. It's all becoming real so fast! to be continued....
