I went through the whole process 2 years ago to get the gastric sleeve and literally backed out 2 weeks before my surgery date because I was nervous of the unknown and i also thought i could continue loosing weight by myself because I already lost a lot in the process of trying to get surgery. Eventually i started gaining and had a hard time getting control of my weight so this year I decided to go through the process again and wanted to back out again but went through with it and I've had no regrets since. Its definitely not easy but knowing i have this tool it'll be easier for me to control my weight and stay at a healthy weight and plus I already lost 25 pounds in 2 weeks so that makes me feel great too. You got this!!!
