[color=rgb(40,40,40)][font=helvetica]Hello everyone. My name is Michelle and this is my first post on here. I am really excited to get to meet some other people to share my thoughts as I go through this life long journey. If everything goes as planned I will be having gastric bypass surgery in October. It seems like such a long time away but I know it will be here before I know it. I am currently going on my 3rd nutritional visit out of 6, for my insurance company. [/font][/color][color=rgb(40,40,40)][font=helvetica]I have already seen the psychologist and he cleared me. He said I was pleasant and that I had a clear grasp of everything that was expected before and after the surgery. [/font][/color]
[color=rgb(40,40,40)][font=helvetica]I am looking for a friend to talk to, someone who is maybe going through pre-op or someone who has gone through surgery who could give me some insight on what to expect. [/font][/color]

[color=rgb(40,40,40)][font=helvetica]Bye for now, I can't wait to meet some wonderful people on here. [/font][/color]
