OK so my journey started last July. I went to the same doctors office my best friend went to. Come to find out that United Health care will only let you goto a center of excellence. Orlando Health was the place for that. I got depressed and didn't do anything about it until January. On January 28th I had my first visit for my weigh in. I am so excited to report that I have my last weigh in on June 29th I got my insurance approve four days later and Surgery is scheduled for August 10th 27 days from now. I am nervous and scared all at the same time. I know physically I will be fine I am most scared about the mental part of it. 
I would love to get a group of people together and create a Facebook page that are August sleeve patients. My best friend did that with her january 2012 sleeve patients. They get together once a learn just to keep up with each other. I think this will help us all.
