Hello all,
 
I am 34 years old, married and have 1 child. I have been thinking about VSG for about 2-3 years now. I wanted to wait till after having kids so I postponed. Our 2nd child never happen due to being overweight we could not conceive. So I started taking weight loss pill, that worked temporarily. When I stopped taking the pills the weight came back and came back even more then I had lost. That's when I reached my highest recorded weight of 280lb. Holly molly I couldn't believe it, at that point I knew I needed to take some action. I stared to watch what I was eating and by the time i seen the surgeon for a consultation i has  down to 269lb. I was 11 lb down, from there I needed to complete 6 visits with my nutritionist, see a behaviorist and complete some blood work and ekg tests. The surgeon also wanting me to lose about 14lb before surgery. I thought ohh no problem i just lost 11lb, 14lb more shouldn't be to hard, well I ran into problems let me tell you. After having that visit I gained 4lbs and now struggled to lose 18lb. With in the that 6 month I met up with the nutritionist and the weight slowly came off. By my last nutritionist visit I have shed the weight by working out 3-4 a week and watching what I was eating. We stuck to a low carb, high protein diet. I have met all the requirements and submitted all the paperwork to my insurance and now the waiting game. I'm hoping to have my surgery before the end of next month (November  2017), my fingers are crossed! My current weight is 254.3. I will be on a two week liquid diet and should lose some more weight right before surgery.
