  1. I was sleeved 12/18/13. Not sure if I made the best decision. I am in a lot of pain. Can barely drink water. I can't talk to my family because I don't want them saying I told you not to do it. I had a few sips of chicken broth today. Jello sf is too sweet. I need help
  2. I started my pre-op diet! I am being sleeved on 12/18. The only issue I have is drinking the Protein drink!!! What can I do to make it better! I am so tired of drinking the chocolate flavor. #please no crazy comment #just trying to get help me complete my required amount
  3. So I am getting sleeved on 12/18. 48 hrs from now I will be starting my new journey in life. Reasons for me getting the sleeve: my mother has high blood pressure and keeps having strokes. My grandmother (mom side) also has a stroke and a diabetic. My dad has high blood pressure. I don't want to follow so I figured the next step is to get the weight off. I don't like the way I look in clothes. I don't feel I dress for the age I am. Ladies, you know the bigger you are the more you start dressing like a grandmother... I don't want to dress that way! **********Things going on in my head: I feel I have an angel and devil starting inside of my head! the angel (skinny girl in me) is pushing me forward and on goal (obeying my pre-op diet) and reminding me why I am doing this process. The devil (fat girl) is telling me to cancel the surgery and stay fat, and to eat all the bad stuff I can and have been eating. I will not lie I love bread, rice, and Pasta. And I think the fat girl don't want to give it up. But I know it will help me get weight I want to be at. I am 236-244 lbs (my weight fluctuates). I know I don't need to eat them but the tastes so good. I am scared of the new journey but I know if I don't force myself to get the surgery I will be in the same weight class I been in with no change. My self-esteem will be the same place! Did anyone else feel this way?

    My Story

    In 2005 I got the birth control shot and picked up 100 lbs in 1 year. Plus since my appetite increased I of course ate more! Now I just can't get rid of the weight. I am married and have a 2 yr old son. My parents have high blood pressure. My mom and grandmother both had strokes. So getting this weight off and wanting to eat better is a priority for me. I am so scared I will have one. I started this process in June 2013 and now waiting for Aetna to approve me! I pray I can get this surgery by the end of the year.

    Aetna - Waiting

    My doctor office submitted my documents last Wednesday and I called Aetna but they cannot locate my paperwork! And my doctor office submitted 3 times! I am getting a little frustrated because I want the insurance company to at least have it and working on my pre-certification. Did anyone else have this issue!
