Hello Everyone. I am a mother of two and a wife of 14 years. My surgery date has been scheduled for Oct. 9. I have nervous butterflies every time I think about it. I know deep down that this is the right choice and right time for me. This change will improve my life and I will be able to enjoy life with my family so much more. I feel that I have missed out on so much living due to my weight, such as refusing to attend my high school reunion in fear of how classmates would look at me. Even with a positive outlook and excitment for a healthier life, I am scared of possible complications and buyer's remorse. My brain tells me that this is my best chance to live longer and healthier, but I still worry about long-term regrets or side effects. It is more like a fear of the unknown. The worries have started to increase as the date approaches. The last time I was this scared or made such a big decision was when my husband and I decided to start a family. I never regretted that choice. I'm sure I will not regret this choice either. I wish you all luck and quick recovery.

Hi Everyone! I am also scheduled for October 2. Looking forward to this journey but scared too. I'm 34, married with two kids (3 and 14 months). My highest weight was 399 (first pregnancy), avg non-pregnant weight has been 364 and I lost 10lbs on my 6-month supervised diet.

I'm ready for this but I just don't have any willpower. I am so disappointed in myself for only losing 10lbs with amazing resources to help me for 6 months but I just couldn't get it together.

I pray that the sleeve will give me that extra support that I am missing, I just need the jump start to be on my way.

Good luck to all of you! I am so looking forward to taking this journey with you and can't wait for the weight to start coming off!

I'm 25 years old from Atlanta, Georgia single and looking ;-). My surgery date is Tuesday, October 16th. Luckily I do not have a preop diet but I am trying to drop weight before surgery. I'm down 20lbs during my 6 month supervised diet and hope to drop another 5 before surgery.

Good luck to everyone!

Natava - you couldn't have quoted my thoughts & feelings any better than if I had spoken them aloud myself. I just met with my pych for the first time yesterday & she really helped calm my fears & gave me things to think about when I'm getting nervous. She had the surgery a couple of years ago so she really speaks from experience.

      Hey ya'll. SO. I got down to 199 for the weigh in but gained it all back right after. I have to do another month of weight management. They switched out the nutritionists at the last second and she said she doesn't pass anyone unless they have 5 veggies a week. I'm starting metformin and Farxiga today. Doc found a little bit of blood in my urine but wasn't too concerned. I'm trying not to freak myself out either. Depression is a little more intense than usual. I'm all over the damn place.

      3/19 - It wasn't a bad day I stayed up quite a bit much of the day. Have to focus on walking more before it gets too hot to walk outside at all.   Pain was less, but insomnia has kicked in the last two nights
