I'm new to this and trying to figure it out.
I am three months post - op and looking for a support system. I started this journey two years ago when my weight was really taking a tow on my health and relationship. I drove to the Richmond facility and went through the orientation class just to talk myself out of doing it on the car ride home. I knew then I wasn't ready for for such a drastic lifestyle change. REALLY? My health was not good and I wasn't ready to commit to this. So two years passed and I grew more and more depressed which caused more weight gain. I tried every fad diet and program, sure I lost some weight but it just came right back. Things changed and last summer I had made up my mind that this was the right thing to do. I went and seen the surgeon in October and things started rolling. My surgery was February 6,2014 and has been the best decision of my life. Definitely not been an easy path but it's well worth it.
