Hey there September sleevers! Any one out there?



Recommended Posts

Just began my journey, but my insurance doesn't require a supervised diet so my surgeon said September is realistic. Next stop- Psych eval the 23rd, NUT apt the 28th then SUBMITTING TIME! I'm very excited to move on into this chapter of my life, considering i've been overweight since BIRTH. haha :)

welcome and thanks for joining us! we also have a fb group if you are interested message me or post your email.

Welcome!

I consider myself very lucky! My mother had gastric bypass with the same insurance 4 years ago and was required to do a 6 month supervised diet. She was very surprised when she found out I wasn't. Thank you for being welcoming ladies!

I don't have a diet, but have to see a nutritionist for 6 months

I'm on month 5 of 6 with my nutritionist. Like most plans I don't have to lose during this time but CANNOT gain (not even one monthly weigh in can be higher than recorded start weight!). So far this has been my weigh ins: down 5, same, down 1, same, and have to weigh in Monday again. Nervous I'm up since last month but not over starting so should be ok. Month 6 is the 3 hour class on August 20th and since nutrition is part of that it counts as 6th visit. Then we can finally file w insurance!!!

sleeve_getter- I finish my 6th NUT on Aug 19th! Maybe we will be sleeved at the same time! My surgeon only does them on Tuesdays. That way everyone stays in the hospital on Tuesday & Wednesday and go home on Thursday. Hopefully we will get our dates fairly soon after our final NUT appt.

MarciaN that would be awesome! I've been told by my case worker approval takes about 3 weeks once she submits it and then depends how surgeons schedule looks. But would love to find a buddy that will be on my timeframe!

So I keep going back and forth wether or not to tell my job? You just use vacation... As if nothing happened. Any thoughts? Have you told your employer?

I have not been at my job long enough to use FMLA, so I chose to tell my manager. I am shooting for surgery on September 4th because that is the Friday before the long weekend and also because my son's birthday is September 1st and I didn't want his birthday to be overshadowed by my surgery. My manager has been great and said that he will do everything he can to work with me. I plan some personal days and vacation days combined.

      WOW by the Grace of God 17 years ago I went to Mexico and had a lap band put on for weight loss and my waist was 64 inches and That’s more than 5 foot around and 18 stone  my weight was 375 pounds. Today I went shopping for not sweats and I succeeded. I found pants and a shirt at an awesome price at Burlington by the way. But the real story here is, today. My waist is 45 inches and my weight is 260. Both incredible numbers but think about this. My waist is almost 20 inches smaller around Wow that’s a brain wrecker.  Still, I love my band  I even celebrate it’s birthday 10-26-06 FYI-it’s kind of like choking yourself, and never letting go. And trying to eat. lol Life is good

      Hi all! I’m Heidi, a Canadian ex-Pat living in Sydney, Australia. I’m doing this surgery because my mom died 10 years ago from obesity, she lived her own 600lbs life.  So at 116kg, it’s time to make sure my daughters don’t lose their mom to obesity.

      Drinking my favorite Premier Protein Shake for breakfast, and planned a nice healthy lunch today. Protein first, Veg second, then fruit, and carbs last.  💪
