Hello, my name is Leslie. I came across ths site on my phone while looking for bariatric apps for recipies.  I am currently pre-op.  All required pre-testing done, insurance case pending at this point. 
I have spent my life overweight.  At my hightest I was 270.  My doctor had told me at a visit in september of this year that my blood pressure was high and i needed medication, and that I was pre-diabetic.  My father is diabetic and has multiple heart issues.  I decided then to be proactive about everything.  I work in  health care so I know procedures and have studied them for years. 
With any luck I will be having gastric sleeve January 2015.  Just waiting on insurance.  Not having issues with diet since i found a prethera of recipes online. 
Looking forward to working with all of you on our weight loss journey
