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.

      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.

      Drinking my favorite Premier Protein Shake for breakfast, and planned a nice healthy lunch today. Protein first, Veg second, then fruit, and carbs last.  💪
