Congrats to everyone who got their September dates. Time seems to be flying for me. I have been so busy getting ready for surgery and the kids heading back to school and starting all their activities. September will be here before I know it. Goog luck to everyone. We will all be on the losers bench soon.

It's ok to slip up. The good thing is you know you did and what you need to do to fix it. People ask me why am I still having surgery when after doing the 6 months of diet and exercise I have lost 20 pounds. They say I do not need the surgery. I tell them I know myself. Something will happen and I will fall off the program and gain all the weight I lost plus more. I tell them how the surgery for me is a tool so if I slip it will let me know and not let one slip turn into many slips. Good luck. I know you get thru this.

I'm scheduled for Sept 4th. It's my sons first day of preschool, but due to a mix up at my dr office and my work schedule I have to do it now or wait 3 months. My husband and I discussed it. Long term goal in mind this is what is best. He's going to take lots of pictures and video. Still kinda bummed.

I am really hoping for a September date. I've read stories from people whose paperwork was pushed right through and I hope I am one of those lucky people. My BMI is just over 40, but I have several co-morbs. My insurance doesn't require a long pre-op supervised diet, although I have gotten a letter from my PCP detailing my years of past weight loss attempts and stating she recommends this surgery for me. I have another letter from the neurosurgeon who did a big spinal fusion on me early this year. She is very supportive and believes this surgery will help me avoid future problems and contribute to the further healing of my fusion. I have pre-authorizatioon paperwork from my insurance and I have already attended my surgeon's seminar. My first appointment with him is next week. My fingers are crossed, and I'm hoping that I can schedule the necessary appointments (NUT, PSYCH, etc.) quickly. Ideally, I would love to do this after school starts on Sept. 4 since I won't need to drive the little one to summer camp - she'll be on the school bus. Oh, yeah - and my insurance covers 100%! Good luck to everyone!
