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
