So Cal Newbie, looking for a mentor/buddy



Recommended Posts

Hi! My Dr. has just submitted my paperwork to the insurance co. for approval, so the waiting game begins. I'm decided on the sleeve and am hoping to get it done prior to 2014. We have some insurance plan changes at the new year, so I want it NOW!

Anyways, I'm in So. Cal., and am a single mom of two kiddos. I hope to lose 120 lbs, but I'd be reasonably happy with 100. I need to get to a weight so I can resume an active life again> at my current weight I'm so embarrassed to participate that I just sit on the sidelines. I'm ready to start putting myself first.

My Dr. group is Dr. LePort in Fountain Valley, and they come highly recommended. There are 4 or 5 surgeons in his practice, so I'm not sure exactly who I'll have in the end...

      Hey October Surgery friends...how are you doing? I've lost 15 lbs since surgery on 18th.42 lbs overall. Wearing clothes that feel great. Had a bout of cold and stomach flu and still having some nausea off and on after that but getting better, I think. 
      Seems like I fill up and have minor pain quicker when I eat hot foods rather than cold. Anyone else notice this?
      Still sooo glad I did this.
