That's awesome. I just got my date May 24th. How tall are you and where are you at now? I'm 5'2" 213 and would love to be 130. My surgeon will be Dr. Felix with advanced Bariatrics.

Felix is good. I have no complaints. Let me know what you think. Don't be nervous. Felix's office pretty much make sure you get approved.

That does kinda suck. I think it's a bunch of crap. They call it a program fee to cover the nutritionist and stuff. I thought it was suppose to cover the psychologist too from my understanding but I had to pay for that too.

      I'm checked into the hotel near the hospital and just had my last protein shake of the day. My mom has kindly gone down to the restaurant alone so as not to make me die from watching her eat dinner. Checking in at the hospital tomorrow at 10:50am. So ready!

      Six months pots-op as of yesterday. I celebrated with a HIIT class where I was challenged to do a wall-assisted handstand. I truly thought there's no way in hell that I can get up there. Well... I proved myself wrong. The instructor said, "Just try getting one foot up there." I tried and it was so easy, that the other foot went up, and the next thing that I knew, I was standing on my hands with my legs up in the air, leaning against the wall.
      Last weekend I challenged myself to a 10-mile hike, and I was SURE that my legs would be non-functional that night and the next day. But that didn't happen at all.  But I did learn that I need a new hiking boot or shoe. I've got a goal of walking the Portuguese coastal route of the El Camino later this year, and I good shoes will be essential.
      I've hit another weight loss stall, but that's to be expected. I am so close to my goal already that if it does take 6 more months to get that last stone off, that's okay with me. And I am building muscle, so that stone may never move. S'alright friends, s'alright.
