@ Rena's Ragdolls.. Do you already have a surgeon?

Yes, same as you, Dr. Turton. I went to one of his seminars last year, but it wasn't a good time for me to consider it. This year, I contacted his office instead of going through another seminar. I've had my initial appointment with him and have completed the psych exam and a sleep apnea exam (moderate to severe apnea). My nutritional class starts this Thursday. I haven't yet talked to my PCP about it, and am hoping that she agrees.

@bamafarmchick glad to hear everything is going well. I have been curious as to how long it would take to be out and about after surgery. Keep us posted! Best wishes!

Day 5 and I felt well enough to go watch both of my boys play doubleheaders at the ball field. I sat drinking my Water and ensure clear and got a little sunburned and sweaty. Actually, while at the park, my steristrips sweated off my incisions which look better than expected. I was exhausted by the end of the day but I felt really well otherwise!

      To working out faithfully for 5 days a week. Lets go back to that year with a more positive mind, 
       
      SKINNY SZN HERE WE COME!!!!
       
      It's Saturday!!! My fiance and I are out doing yard work and I made the mistake of not staying hydrated before going out so now my body is shaking and weak. I have my pre-op appointment Tuesday, the 2nd and I am trying my hardest to lose another 2 lbs by then.
