We are one month away!! How exciting!!

What are you doing to get ready? Have you tried the Protein Drinks yet? The Vitamins?

So far so good for me, though I have the chewable Calcium pills that are huge!!

I also worked on refinishing my craft desk so I will have a place to work while recovering!

I am having my surgery on August 6th, I have purchased my Vitamins and Protein drinks, but they told me to wait until after my surgery to start them. I am so excited, but so nervous at the same time. My family are big Italian eaters, so they are not taking my surgery very well. To them I do not look overweight, I wear it well. But i am 5'2 and 204 pounds in a size 14, with high BP, high cholesterol, and now after my first sleep study sleep apnea. I need to go back for a second study and wear a CPAP 2 weeks before surgery, oh joy :angry:

      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
