Alice, 56, Louisville, hopefully the end of Feb, Dr. Oldham.

Alice, are you having to do the six month program due to insurance? Are you having the sleeve?

I'm in Bowling Green, currently on track for late October - early November. My surgeon is Dr. Nwanguma at The Medical Center Surgical Weight Loss.

Welcome, Cindy. Best of luck with your surgery. October is just around the corner.

Thank you! ????

Yes, insurance requires a 6 month medically supervised weight loss program.

Yes I would prefer the sleeve but will find out what surgeon recommends on the 25th when I go.

I'm doing the sleeve, unless my Dr. Changes his mind before surgery. I know each one has different testing they want done pre-surgery. I feel like I'm jumping through hoops, but I'll be done with all of mine at the end of this month.

Have you lost any weight during the supervised diet? I've lost 23 lbs since January. I decided to try to start getting my body used to exercise & dietary changes. Best of luck to you!

I'm just starting this whole process so I'm going to the surgeons office on the 25th to meet with everybody. Then it's on like Donkey Kong with the diet and not smoking! So wish me luck!

Good luck Natalie. I know you will be excited to get a date.

Im doing great. Shed 30lbs. In 19 days. Im eating regular foods. Ive learned alot. My stomach favors shellfish. Shrimp and imitation crab. Avocado is great. And eggs.

Ive learned to eat about 2oz then wait 30 min and eat another 2oz.

How do you no when your full?????? It feels like Thanksgiving

also, i am able to get my Water in ONLY by using a straw, i no they not to...my doctor said only because it COULD cause gas. It doesn't.

      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

      Siri: I don't think it's raining at the moment.
      Wet Dogs: Then why are we wet? This damn Siri person is more stupid than we are.
