  1. Somebody congratulate me, I just passed my Psych Evaluation! I used that online/phone company and I don't think our phone call was more than 20 minutes. At the end he wished me luck and i flatout asked him if I passed and he said I did with flying colors! What no ink blots? LOL
  2. How y’all doing? I’m currently hailing from Rio Rancho, NM! Home of the best green chilies in World ❤️
  3. Has anyone here had to do their psych evals online? My doctor set me up to do this and I'm nervous that a 30-60 minute phone consult with an online psychiatrist or psychologist won't understand how important this eval is to me. If it's a bad one, say he's worried about the fact that I have some depression, he refuses to give me the green light? That will totally screw up my chances to get my surgery... Anyone else here had this experience?

    January bypass buddies??

    Help me guys! I am due for my surgery next Tuesday the 16th, but I have blown my pre-op diet three different times. I think it’s because I have not gotten approval yet from my health insurance company, I just don’t think it’s real! I know I should just do what they say, beyond liquids for two weeks just in case, but I’m having a really hard time! Help me out give a girl a hand and prayer and any advice you have!
  6. I wanna go into Victoria Secrets and find out just what she's been hiding all these years!!! I want to wear pretty panties and bras, look in the mirror and not want to throw up!! Can you imagine - a "no roll zone!"

  11. Hey Folks!! My name is Joan and I am 55 yrs old and in desperate need of a surgery buddy!!! Anyone on this journey that would love someone to bounce things off of, be accountable with, trade recipes with and b***h to? I sure am looking for you!!!!

    I'm nervous about the bypass...what if I fail, even with this? No one I know has done this, so there's no one to get on the phone with and ask them a million questions. I really need to be successful with this tool because my health depends on it. My hubby and kids are supportive, but no one knows how worried I truly am that this will be another diet I fail at....

    Congrats to you too, Suzy!!!!
  14. I just joined this site yesterday and I was surfing the forums, and I couldn't help recognizing all of the fighting...is this normal? My doctor recommended this site as a source of support as I start this journey, but I'm not so sure. Is this site always so negative?

  16. Wow! You're doing a great job and I can only pray I can lose that much weight that quickly. Is there something specific that you did to help you on your way?

    Emotional Rollercoaster

    Dear Lord, I don't think I'll complain about my 3 months!
  18. Is anybody else out there feel like I do? The surgery date will never get here, I've looked at so many pictures and wished it could be me, and damn I just don't think it's going to happen! I still have two dietary classes to finish and then they're supposed to schedule the surgery. Of course we're coming up to the holidays, so it my luck it'll be like next May! I'm getting discouraged!

    Because I'm having a revision from the original stomach stapling error, my doctor tells me that my surgery will be 6 or more hours. He's praying he can get this done and get an RNY. If he can't and I go through all this I just don't know what I'm going to do. I would appreciate prayers! Sent from my SM-G930T using BariatricPal mobile app

    P. S. After dinner at Red Lobster I'm going to make my husband take me to a movie. And there I'm probably going to have a Diet Coke and buttered popcorn! I will call it the end of an era! Sent from my SM-G930T using BariatricPal mobile app
