Hi everyone :) I just had a consultation on June 12th and I am scheduled to get sleeved on Aug 8th already! I guess I'm scared because it's happening so fast ! I have a whole host of medical problems and just hope and pray for a better quality of life :)

You are doing the right thing. Mine happened fairly quickly also but I was glad. I am very pleased with my results so far. I feel like I finally have a handle on my binge eating disorder for the 1st time. I just got back from a cruise & actually lost 4 lbs! I feel better mentally, emotionally & physically. It was the best choice I have ever made in my entire life! I wasn't scared or worried at all about the surgery. You will have this feeling too.

Hi Hun , it does all seem to go fast but it is worth it in the end. I was sleeved on 16th of may this year and I'm down from 275lbs (pre op diet) to 218lbs! It is such an eye opening journey that will bring out millions of emotions ( mine was head ????) it's so hard at times but everything u experience solves itself ( the head hunger solved itself when I went on pureed foods) good luck on ur journey, ur going to do amazing xxxx

Don't worry sweetie, your doing the right thing and I too thought that my surgery would never happen but guess what? My surgery is July 24th. After going to my final nutritionist briefing and seeing all the folks that would be there with me (the class was full of people with the same surgery date) I and my wife felt much better. We will all be thinking of you and wishing you the best. Follow your doctors orders follow the prep to the letter and everything will be fine. You a beautiful women and just think how great it will be to be at your goal weight and buying new clothes to show off your new figure. Good luck

Shela don't worry! It can be very nerve wracking, but once all the surgery and adjusting to a new way of life is done, you will realise it was all worth it x I'm currently rocking a brand new pair of shorts! ( I've never wore shorts before) I'm down 4 dress sizes and loving it!!!!! ????

      I met with my surgeon on Friday.. I've completed all my tests and all my nutrition meetings as well as meeting the weight loss requirements for my insurance. We are officially submitting to insurance for approval and I was given a surgery date of January 16th 2020 (13 days before my birthday!) Fingers crossed all goes through

      Ok, now im getting old...my body gets me up at my normal 5am dog walk even when it's the weekend, vacation, and most importantly when I'm sick. So now that I have more energy, my body wants to make sure I suffer even longer during the day when I have a cold! Damn being healthy again! (:D)

      At my Primary Physician appt, the Doc said you know you lost a whole person. When you started seeing me you were 265lbs now you're 148lbs.
      She's right... I lost the fun me 😂 Joking Joking Joking. It's amazing who keeps track when you don't like insurance and browsers feeds
