    A question for the ladys

    Katyana is right. Our bodies store hormones in the fat we are all fighting to get rid of. Now that we are burning that aft for energy instead of using food as the primary source all those chemicals are being released into our system. Just like many suffers of PCOS see symptoms disappear others will notice changes to menses as well. Hang in there, your body will work through it and adjust to your new normal....as you will to the new you.
  2. Glad you're feeling better! Walk definitely helps, I was banded on 8/31. Been moving since to help work the gas out. Congrats to all my new fellow bandsters.
  3. I got approved this morning....required a bit of stalking the customer service at Cigna but I have the golden number! I am so excited! Can't believe it happened finally..its been a 2 year journey but finally its time! YEAHHHHHH! For those still waiting or working through your pre op requirements...don't give up! You will get there!
  4. Congrats on your surgery BaileyRose! Hope you have a speedy recovery. I went almost all of the last two years sort of blah about this until i went in for my last preop appointment....it then hit me that this is really happening. Now that surgery is so close, utter freak out! I hope the nerves will calm soon. I just have to keep putting one foot in front of the other..know that this will change my life for the better.
