Congratulations to you! May I ask, what does it mean to be "approved by your surgeon?" Does it mean that your insurance approved your surgery or you've jumped thru all the hoops they expected you to, before surgery? Sorry to sound ignorant, just wondering? In the meantime, I'm very happy for you! :)

It means my surgeon got the approval from the insurance company.... My grandma always said there is no such thing as a stupid question.. If you don't ask you don't find out the answer...

Gotcha! Thank you! (Thank your grandma for me too!)

Okay, so some insurances need to have approvals then...I didn't know that since my insurance has the WLS as a covered benefit. Well then I'm jumping up & down (NO IT'S NOT AN EARTHQUAKE) for joy for you!!! Good luck in the coming events!!

      Surgery is set for 10/4/21. At this point I haven't had any coffee, alcohol, carbonated drinks, or caffeine in general for over a month. Too bad it just hit pumpkin spice season! I'm missing my coffee!

      I bought a box (7 servings) of peaches and cream oatmeal (used one) and pumpkin spice pancake mix (none used).  I no longer want them.  The exp dates are 4/2023 and 10/2022, respectively.  I live in Manatee Co, FL.  Will take $10 for all.

      OMG! My time is quickly approaching! I can't believe in 5 days, my life will be changed forever (for the better!). I have thought about this surgery for years, but kept telling myself I didn't need it. Now that I can view it as a tool and not a solution, I realize I do need this tool. This tool will not only help me physically, but mentally as well!

      Getting close - 196 lbs as of this week.  Goal is 195.  Actually, I'm thinking of adjusting my goal.  I'd like to get down to 185 to get rid of this scraggly belly jiggle, then try to build back up to 200 with muscle instead.
