    OMG! Does that mean that you have to start over? My doctor told me that weight watchers was acceptable.... I didn't do weight watchers though. I'm so sorry!

    My NUT appointment lasted about 1 hour-ish. She went over portion sizes, all the food groups, what foods/vitamins I should be eating before surgery to prepare as well as post op diet. Talked about getting in all the Protein and what order I should eat in. She gave me a couple of booklets one with basic food group stuff and one with post op diet guidelines... Hope this helps

    My goal is 110
    My current pic looks ridiculous but I put on my old college clubbing dress and it fit so I was excited. Lol.

    This last one is how swollen my feet were every day... I have Dilated Cardiomyopathy.

    Hi On The Way! I'm a patient of Dr. Neff's too (he's so great!). I was sleeved in Jan '12 and am down 108. Do you know about the Washington Township and Voorhees support group meetings? They're great and I started going when I was pre-op. I'd love to tell you anything you anything I can - I know I had so many questions pre-op. Best wishes!!
