Need Lap Band Buddy / Mentor Pre-Op Massachusetts Gal Seeks Mentor :-)



Recommended Posts

Hi there!

I'm about 4-6 weeks pre-op (date TBD pending 6/15 visit with surgeon) and would love to connect with a mentor.

A bit about me:

I'm 44 years old, divorced, do volunteer work, live north of Boston, weigh 292 (down from 303 before I started towards the 5% weight loss I need to achieve pre-surgery), and would ideally like to lose 130 pounds (goal weight: 160 lbs.)

I've had all my pre-op testing done, been medically cleared for surgery, and am just awaiting my appointment with the surgeon. :(

All that said -- my mind needs to catch up with my body! This is such a huge life transition and I don't want to do it completely on my own. The more help and guidance I can get the better. There's nothing like somebody who's "been there and done that" to understand.

Thanks for reading -- hope to hear from someone soon!

Laurie :thumbup:
