My Husband was approved today !!!!



Recommended Posts

He just has to pick a date!!!!

Now he can suffer with this insufferably insanity of a balancing act (diet and nutrition).

He will probably loose weight - eat and not exercise. :cry :cry

Thank goodness I love him so much!!!!!! ;):)

Congratulations to your DH!! My DH is getting the band sometime next year. He still needs to start his 6 mos diet plan to get approval with insurance. I know what you mean....men can lose faster and easier than us girlies. Most surgeons do encourage the women to go first for that very reason. ;) It will be nice for both of you to be on the journey together. I'm looking forward to it myself.

I think my DH should consider it too, he's not as overweight as I was but he's really struggling to get it off and keep it off. He had lost 20kg since early 2005 but it's creeping back on again now.He's almost 40 and he sits at a desk for 10 hours a day and in the car for at least 2, just a heart attack waiting to happen. He has a stressful job too.

But he's also the more lily livered of the two of us! I always knew I wouldnt have problems with PBing and not being able to eat foods, I've always had a cast Iron cut and I was right. I dont have those issues. But poor old Doug, he'll puke at the drop of a hat, he fainted while I was giving birth, roflmao! I just know (and he does too) if he were banded, he'd be the one with difficulties, constant PBing etc and I dont know, in Australia anyway, it would be decidedly unmanly not to be able to go out to business lunches, drink beer etc. YOu jsut couldnt order an entree and that's it if you're a bloke. It requires a lifestyle that our culture just doesnt really support for men.

So I think your hubby is very brave and what a great step to take!

Thanks everyone! I sure am excited for him.

He does not have that much to loose, and works in a non-airconditioned shop all day, as a machinist, so he will drop it easily. Dirty dawg.

He is looking at making his appt for July 3rd. Then with the July 4th holiday he won't miss much work.

He is already eating better, his problem is Portion Control. He eats way too much when he does eat.

Donna - more then likely not, as he is not a big computer person, we each have our own laptops, and he does the bills, surfs his stuff (poker online, and the such) but it not on the pc that much. But I will lead him here for questions, and let him read up - so be kind to him, he's a big softy and people love him naturally. He's not high strung and crazy like me! ;)

Thanks again!!!

      WOW by the Grace of God 17 years ago I went to Mexico and had a lap band put on for weight loss and my waist was 64 inches and That’s more than 5 foot around and 18 stone  my weight was 375 pounds. Today I went shopping for not sweats and I succeeded. I found pants and a shirt at an awesome price at Burlington by the way. But the real story here is, today. My waist is 45 inches and my weight is 260. Both incredible numbers but think about this. My waist is almost 20 inches smaller around Wow that’s a brain wrecker.  Still, I love my band  I even celebrate it’s birthday 10-26-06 FYI-it’s kind of like choking yourself, and never letting go. And trying to eat. lol Life is good

      Hi all! I’m Heidi, a Canadian ex-Pat living in Sydney, Australia. I’m doing this surgery because my mom died 10 years ago from obesity, she lived her own 600lbs life.  So at 116kg, it’s time to make sure my daughters don’t lose their mom to obesity.
