I am new to the group. I am having the gastric sleeve surgery on Oct 16th. I am excited. I have been dealing with my weight issue since my 20s and I am 40 now. It has really been a rollercoaster ride. But I got serious about my health last year when my father past. I decided I wanted to live.. I am tired of taking meds, sleeping with a CPAP. Tried of not being able to do active things with my husband and children. So I started my bariatric journey in July of this year. These last 19 days I am in preparation mode. I cleaned my closet today and only kept clothes to make it through fall and winter. No turning back.
