I can't say I blame you. I went with Felix because he is one of the best. I hated the program fee but I was in a rush and happened to have it from my tax return. I didn't want to waste any more time.

I was given the option to break it up. Maybe that would make it easier on you. Any idea when you'll be having your surgery. It's nice to talk to someone here in Fresno and using Felix. I haven't found many in Fresno. I had my surgery in May so some of the May Sleevers have broke off and we created our own Facebook group. It's been a great support group. Unfortunately none of them are in Fresno. I don't think any of them are even in California. Most of them are in the south/southeastern part of the U.S.

Tell me a little about yourself... How old are you? What are your stats? Goals? Etc etc. feel free to ask me any questions you might have. My info on the site isn't really updated because I use the mobile app the most. Well, good luck and stay in touch. My email is janetbrewer1639@comcast.net if its easier to communicate that way.

I know they gave me that option, so RhYs what I'm doing I think with Xmas and property taxes this will be what I have to do. My surgery is set for December 19th I'm excited....I'm 31 with five children 3 I gave birth to and with each one i gained a good 50 pounds. I'm married and since I got married I've gained 50 pounds. I have always been thick but now I'm beyond for my height. I'm 5'1 and am now about 215 pounds......I'm at my breaking point. After my second child who happen to be a boy I was having a lot of problems and after some lab work I was told I had pcos, I was in denial for a year then decided I better get my health in check ....plus I wanted a baby. 2 months after I started metformin I got pregnant. And now two years later I'm bigger now then I was after I had my son. So after seeing what lap band did for my sister I decided I wanted it to.....then I went to the seminar and after all the info I was sure the sleeve was for me. I talked my mom into talking to her Dr about it for her diabetes and she is 7 weeks post opp now she is doing great. So I'm just now waiting for my date.....I am so happy that I will be out of all the yoyo dieting crap. I just want to be healthy and it won't hurt to look hot.....lol what are your stats.....then and now. Oh I am also at lisav2281@gmail.com

I have lost a total of 57 lbs. Besides my first month and one other month I have lost 6 lbs/month like clockwork. I am expecting it to get slower. This last month I thought I was only going to lose 3-4 but at the last minute.. Bam! 3 lbs were gone.

I ran my first (of hopefully many) 5ks today. It was the Jingle Bell Run down Christmas Tree Lane. Had such a great time and it felt great to not come in last. I ran the entire thing! I never could've done it 60lbs ago.

      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.
