Anyone want to be my March 19, sleeve buddy? Haven't gotten any responses from March Sleevers. :-/. (I feel like I'm in kindergarten ????)

Unfortunately.. Yes. I remember reading it here and it's heartbreaking for all the work you have done and then they let you down with a denial

Good luck

Oh boy... I've done everything and haven't been approved. :-/. I was told 2xs that I was only to be told, "oops! Not yet!" Still waiting but all is completed!

Just called because I'm on pins and needles! I'm finally officially approved. My fear is now real. Anyone getting sleeved next week? Wanna be "buddies?"

Great, GSleeved! I'm sooo flipping scared I hope I don't chicken out! My girlfriend keeps saying, "look at the gift you being given! You have an *** and are getting sleeved in less than 3 months! Take it. Don't live in fear!" We'll, I'm trying! :-)

Slim - I know what you mean. This is very much out of our control. But ask yourself - what are you afraid of?

a. The surgery itself: obviously a scary thing. Not sure about you but I've never had surgery before so I don't know really what to expect, what will happen, how I'll react etc.. You're probably feeling the same. The only advice I can give here is to remind you that thousands of people have gone through the surgery before us without any problems. And since we can't control the outcome, there is not much point in worrying about it. It will all be fine. Have faith in yourself and your surgical team.

b. What comes after the surgery: this one is tougher. What happens after surgery is largely in our control. How we respond; how we behave; and how we adapt will ultimately determine the success we'll have. The fact that you're here and have gone through all those hoops shows your commitment to success. Even though the future is unknown - how will I eat? what food will I tolerate? what foods will make me throw up etc.. - just commit to yourself that whatever happens and whatever comes along you will adapt to it - and roll with the punches.

It's not going to be easy - so don't expect it to be. But we know that this is the right path for us - the path that we were on was leading to disease, pain and an early grave. For the first time we have a tool - a weapon - that will make a difference in this life or death battle with weight. Now is our chance to start winning.

It starts on Tuesday!
