I'm in Western ky, Hopkinsville, too far away for a workout buddy, and not doing that much myself due to a bad knee but wanted to wish you good luck with your surgery.

Not sad at all, smart! Our "normal" friends can be very supportive, but still don't understand band life. I know one banded person in my regular live, she lives about 90 miles away. I speak with her on the phone sometimes (she is a co-worker in another office). It is great to have people in the same situation in your real life!

My BFF doesn't have a weight problem, she is very cognizant about her diet. She is also my biggest cheerleader and supporter. She's learned a lot about being banded by being my friend. I love that my BFF is so supportive, but having someone banded to talk with is awesome!!

      Going in on Tuesday. Things are arranged (need to order a cab to the station because it's too early for a bus going there) and I'm getting more nervous by the hour.

      I feel like I've finally gotten past the biggest hurdle. Surgery date is September 6th, the day after Labor Day, and yesterday I got my insurance approval letter. I've followed everything they've told me to do, and I've even lost 30 lbs on my own since hubby had to change his diet for diabetes. No worries now about having to do 4 weeks of the liver shrinking diet instead of 2. On my initial visit, if I had gained just 5lbs I would have had to do 4 weeks. It's getting closer. Just 2 more months to wait.

        Although the prep work took energy, I found the biggest hurdle was post-operative. The first 48 hrs were extremely uncomfortable. I did an overnight and trying to down the liquids, Tylenol, and especially the barium was rough. Thankfully though, I got away with only having to have 1 belly injection after surgery. Needless are not my thing.

      I am looking for people to connect with that are 4-5 years out. Many of the support sights I go to are all newbies. And while I enjoyed that when i first had my surgery and found it useful, I am looking to exchange ideas with folks that are out a few years. I am slowly gaining weight back and losing my excitement. I don't want that!
