HI everyone! I've been lurking to boards for a month or so and I figured it was time to step out of the shadows and say hi. I'm new to this journey, I just had my first visit (have to do 6) with the weightloss doctor. I go back to him December 6 I'll be meeting my surgeon on January 8th. I'm excited and nervous but looking forward to having an improved "me". I've started making my changes (smaller plates, measuring food, putting fork down between bites, yall know the drill) and I'm hoping to see some weight loss when I go back in a few weeks. I haven't totally settled on a procedure yet, I was leaning more towards sleeve but will discuss with the surgeon what he feels is best for me considering my past and my stats now. I have a husband and little girl (6 yo) and both are supportive and so is one of my best friends. I do have one friend who is not supportive and I've had to be firm and tell him to keep his negativity to himself. I love the support I see on this board and there are so many inspirational stories here. I am looking forward to seeing yall progress and seeing me progress as well. Sorry for a long post, I just wanted to introduce myself and share a little.
