I am hopefully going to be late July, early August. It will depend on speed of (hopeful) approval and when they can fit me in I suppose. My best friend works for the surgeon and said that surgeries are usually scheduled two weeks out after approval.... Besides approval, my next big thing to work with is my school schedule. I am in nursing school and we go year round. I have a class with clinicals that ends July 23rd and I don't have another class that requires that kind of physical exertion until mid September. So I have about a 7 week window. We shall see....

I live in Grand Junction, Colorado. How much longer do you have in school? I graduate in December! I am SOOO ready. I am in a 27 month program, and it took me over four years to get my pre requisites, so I have basically been in school forever! My poor kid is 13, and was 6-7 when I went into school, so it is literally all he can remember of me ha ha. I plan to go on for my Masters, but I want to get my son thru high school first. School has definitely been one of my big stressors, and has assisted in a lot of my weight gain. I am ready to have a real job, not having to worry about homework and class times, clinical times, and tuition etc... Feel like putting the exercise effort in etc... Summer should be great for that. Hopefully by the time I hit the point where I am released for more than walking and light exercise, will be around the time I am finishing up school and I will have the time to put into the gym and getting myself back.

Hi debraeve :)

I also am so ready for this operation. I have done so much research on it and I just wish that July 2nd would come sooner... Like your mum I also had a Lap band which was not successful at all, I actually gained more weight with the lap band, (my fault though probably not the lap bands)..

I had my lap band out last friday. I was hoping to be able to be sleeved within the same operation however my surgeon refused to do that stating that it's much safer to wait for 12 weeks between surgeries. I'm really happy with my surgeon so am very content with his decision, he knows best..... even though I'm hanging to have it done.

I'm so excited by the prospect that by the end of the year I will be a lot slimmer. Next year is going to be a whole new year for me. I wan't to stop just existing and actually start living...

Who knows I may even be back at the beach in a pair of bathers by next summer.

Where are you getting your surgery done?

Chat soon, Lily :)

I totally agree, I told my hubby just the other day that he now needs to start saving up for my plastic surgery. I gave him a list of what I would like done.. I think that he nearly had a heart attack... mmmm, I also might have more luck getting it done if I win the lotto lol

      So months ago, the Kid thought it would be funny to create an account on here and troll me with it.  Figured out it was her a few days later, and had a laugh about it.  She's been trolling me on it ever since.
      This morning I went on to post something and realized after the fact that I posted using her account as she was on my laptop last night 🙄
      Trolling over, Kid.

      Ok I had surgery on Jan 27 2020 so I am 3 weeks out and have lost 32 lbs  I wish I had this done sooner. Now just trying to figure out different things to eat so I am not eating the same thing over and over. I did order some stuff today from the Bariatric Store and that stuff should be here in time for my next phase. I have a goal of 50 lbs by the first of June hope that is attainable. Good luck to every one on this journey
