I'm from the Quincy Illinois area and am new to this forum. My doctor is in the process of submitting the insurance information. I should know something by my August appointment about a surgery date.

I was originally going to be getting an RNY, but my doctor ended up suggesting the VSG instead. I'm thankful to find a place like this to learn and hear from others.

hey dude - welcome to the neighborhood :)

always great to see a newbie with such a wonderful smile :)

things can be/are a little overwhelming at first, but you'll be fine

you'll have many different emotions as WLS approaches like excitement, joy, but also nerves will act up

i can tell you will be an asset to the board with all your questions!!!!

ask away - we love to help, we're all here to support you NEWBIES!!

enjoy the continueing process towards getting WLS

get used to a few things like drinking as much H20 as possible

DON'T drink with any of your meals!!!!(people have been shot for less ;) )

stop drinking 30 minutes before you eat

don't eat for 45-60 minutes after you eat

drink as much as possible during the day (at least 64 oz)

eat slowly, chew thoroughly

stop drinking soda now - can't have post WLS

the above are your new rules you must live with - again people have been shot for not following :o :lol:

enjoy starting your new healthier, happier, longer life!!!! :)

take care guy

good luck!!!!

It's exciting to have a newbie on the board. i love new perspectives. This is a fantastic journey to be on. It is scary the not knowing but you've done all that's required and have the application for approval. you will do fine. What is your BMI, starting weight, and how do you want to lose. This is exciting. :P

Thank you all for the welcome. My BMI starting this process out was 53. My weight from my primary doctor, before my first WLS surgeon appointment, was 373. I've been on a pre-surgery diet from my dietician and am at a BMI of 44 right now. My goal weight, as I recall, is 170.

      Hide and Seek? No....   If you have noticed, it’s been a little bit of stretch between posts. It’s not because I am not interested in blogging. I absolutely love sharing my journey with you.   You see, my world has changed! I now exercise every single morning with a 3 to 4-mile walk. I also now meal prep so I don’t fall into old habits.   I am also a bit hooked on closing my Apple Watch Fitness Rings! In fact, I am obsessed with doubling and tripling most of them.   So this does take up a lot of time and by the time you add work into the mix and family time, it becomes a shorter day.   Priorities are in order for me and I could not be happier.   So in the last week, I’ve been hitting goals that I never thought I would be able to hit again. I weigh myself on Sunday’s now. It’s just easier to do before I get dressed for church. It just feels good. I refuse to constantly get on the scale when I see everyday victories. Like getting back into clothes I never thought I could, or taking the time to just breathe and be grateful for the blessings I have in my life right now.   Continued on www.SabrinaGoddess.com

      6 Weeks Post Op!

      My world is drastically different! I now walk 3 to 4 miles a day and I’m constantly getting up to move my body! .

      I close my Apple Watch rings daily and about 4 to 6 days a week I double or triple them!

      I have been released to have all foods. When I reintroduce some I need to start at 1 ounce to see how “Tiny Tummy” likes it!

      I am not reintroducing sugars, coffee or junk! I did not pay close to $13,000 to fail! .

      I went to get follow up bloodwork done this week and my numbers are all in the perfect range! .

      This is my new world and I am happy it!

        I didn’t see it either but I wish I had now for both the battle on court & the ball tampering accusations flying around everywhere now.
