Debated on weight-loss surgery for several years and put it off time and time again until I finally decided enough was enough. Went to first appointment on August 5, 2022. Had to  have 7 nutrition classes and weigh-ins per insurance requirements. I believe the hardest part of that journey was stopping the nicotine. I started smoking at 12 years old and tried repeatedly  to stop but finally stopped cigarettes on 6/1/2022 only to start vaping which was no better. I just hit 3 weeks nicotine free on 1/30/2023. It's been extremely difficult stopping and yes I have gained over 30lbs in the process. Now I'm trying to get the pounds back off and just waiting for my surgery date now.
