Ohhk so right after my post I visit my primary doctor and was excited to talk about my new journey! I was so disappointed he dismissed the idea told me he has no idea about anything on the surgery and we never talked about weight loss!! Plus he dismissed me for missing 3 appt now I gotta find a new primary and start over.

Have you looked into having the surgery in Mexico? It is actually priced in a way it can be affordable and they do great work and treat you like royalty. I'm scheduled for surgery in Tijuana on 1/31. My friend had her surgery there in May and did great.

I'm not sure where that program is. I'm going to Garcia. The total was 4700, I paid 500 deposit to set a date and will pay the balance when I arrive. That includes transportation and Hoyle stay as well. We only had to buy plane tickets to Sand Diego.

My surgeon is Dr Kuwada. I will also be at Mercy. I've heard nothing but good things from people who have had their surgery there.

      I'm checked into the hotel near the hospital and just had my last protein shake of the day. My mom has kindly gone down to the restaurant alone so as not to make me die from watching her eat dinner. Checking in at the hospital tomorrow at 10:50am. So ready!

      Six months pots-op as of yesterday. I celebrated with a HIIT class where I was challenged to do a wall-assisted handstand. I truly thought there's no way in hell that I can get up there. Well... I proved myself wrong. The instructor said, "Just try getting one foot up there." I tried and it was so easy, that the other foot went up, and the next thing that I knew, I was standing on my hands with my legs up in the air, leaning against the wall.
      Last weekend I challenged myself to a 10-mile hike, and I was SURE that my legs would be non-functional that night and the next day. But that didn't happen at all.  But I did learn that I need a new hiking boot or shoe. I've got a goal of walking the Portuguese coastal route of the El Camino later this year, and I good shoes will be essential.
      I've hit another weight loss stall, but that's to be expected. I am so close to my goal already that if it does take 6 more months to get that last stone off, that's okay with me. And I am building muscle, so that stone may never move. S'alright friends, s'alright.
