I start my options class with Kaiser tomorrow. I am excited. I know that I have lost a little weight since my orientation on the 17th, but I am going to weight to update my info until after my weigh-in at my class. I can not wait to be through this class.

I also got good news today. After my surgery I will be getting more hours at work because one of the girls is leaving and I will get her position =) I was expecting to hear that news anytime, so I am so excited. Things are finally starting to look up. This also means that I may have to push for a sooner surgery date to make sure that I am healed before she goes. Lets hope my insurance works with me xxfingers crossedxx

I'm in California. I thought they had you do all the testing and evaluations before the end of class?

You have to have all of your labs done before class end. After class completion you meet with the bariatrician to discuss your medical history, etc, then they schedule you for the mental health eval. If all goes well with both appointments and each of them see no reason you cannot proceed with surgery, your next appointment will be with the surgeon.

I did Options last Fall and was so impressed with everything I learned and lost the 10% they recommend before sugery. I had surgery 4/6 at West LA and was so impressed with the surgeon Dr. Zelada and his team. I'm doing great! On soft foods now and tolerating most foods well, it is weird to be full with just 1/2 cup for a meal. Since the start of the program I'm down 63 pounds, very happy with the decision and the entire process with Kaiser.

Newbie that the same way it was with me.... I did everything while doing the Options Program and on other locations they do first the Options Program and then they star preparing them and all the blood test done and at the END then see the surgeon...
