Okay, so my surgery is scheduled for Oct. 13th! I can't wait. This has been a relatively fast process for me. My regular doctor recommended it to me at the end of August. I attended a seminar on the 6th of September. I was approved and scheduled right after that. I could have had surgery sooner, but had to wait until I had a few days off. I have been reading these boards and doing endless research, not to mention reading two books about the surgery, which I have found all very helpful. I just responded to a post about having 2nd thoughts. It is kind of scary, but NO 2nd thoughts here! I am not this fat girl that I'm looking at now. I know there can be complications with any surgery, and I hope that I am okay. I have felt very confident about the process and surgery the entire time! I'm thinking, at this point, nothing can be worse than the anticipation and waiting for Oct. 13th! I know this will be hard work, but I look so forward to this adventure! I'm actually looking forward to eating smaller portions. I'm sick of overeating and then the guilt and the entire cycle of it all! I don't mind exercising~I use to be an athlete for heavens sake. I can't wait to move...I mean really move again! Surgery ~better life~ Here I come! I wish it was tomorrow! tongue.gif

Congratulations on your upcoming banding! My surgery is October 12th and the process went quickly. Went to my first pre op info session on 8 /11 so it will be just 2 months from start to banding( fingers crossed). I am so excited for this. I feel the same way you do about being tired of over eating. Let's keep in touch. Good luck!!

      Hey October Surgery friends...how are you doing? I've lost 15 lbs since surgery on 18th.42 lbs overall. Wearing clothes that feel great. Had a bout of cold and stomach flu and still having some nausea off and on after that but getting better, I think. 
      Seems like I fill up and have minor pain quicker when I eat hot foods rather than cold. Anyone else notice this?
      Still sooo glad I did this.

        I had surgery Oct 29. Lost 35#. Plateau now. But seeing what clothes fit now is encouraging.

        My surgery was 10/19. #40 down since surgeon pre op visit. Getting close to end of soft foods. I think only issue going to regular foods is portion size. So far trying a new food every day. With no issues.
