  8. well I am back so much going on dec I go in for the last meetings wish me luck please the dr. says he thinks my heart is strong enough for surgery so excited about that I just finished another 6 months wit the dieticion so now about how long before surgery

  9. well my nut is not much help I showed this site to my gp and he was quite happy that I found this site he also says he will recomend this site for others. having said that he says just agree with mt nut and keep asking you all for the good advice. having to wait until the 1st of the year is so they can keep a close check on whats going on with my heart he says losing weight is good but losing life not so much. so i will keep on learning more from you all thanks ali

      yes please get a nutitionist that specialises in baraitric surgical weight loss. or your going to have problems.

      No offense, but I think I'd be more concerned with your possible heart problem than 4 more visits witha Nut. Mayve also find a Nut. you like ! And that believes in WLS !!

      This is why I totally believe in bariatric centers of excellence where the TEAM is focused on your goals. There is not one single person at my center who doesn't believe in the positive long term results of WLS. I agree, find a different NUT. And definately push for making sure your heart is strong enough to get through this surgery, it is the most critical thing to focus on.

  11. AUGUST 19TH SURICAL CONSULT. YAY HOW LONG BEFORE SURGERY ALL MY STUFF HAS BEEN DONE INSURANCE SAID YES ANYONE GOT A CLUE

      Good luck to you!! Hopefully your date is soon and you will join the loser's bench!

  14. my fav food tasted like blah. when I went on a food binge carrot cake and snowballs were my choice of feel better meds so since I am almost to the surgery I thought I would have a little party for myself I discovered I went to the rasberries first then went to the goodie shelf. long story short only the milk tasted good the rest had no flavor. so next time I will stick to my berries. I wonder if I would have felt I had to do this to myself because my dieticion is against wls. she said I am becoming to restrictive in my choice of food. I am not on a diet I AM ON A LIVEIT thanks for lendining an ear
