I'm about a month out from a seminar and still a month away from an appt with Carolinas Weight Mgmt. I expect this process to take time, but I'm kinda over the slowness. I called Lake Norman Bariatric today (after 5pm) and they're supposed to call me back tomorrow.

Who are you seeing? I'm guessing QueenCity makes you local :)

I went through CWMand Dr.Gersin was my surgeon it took me some to get an appt with him. I started out on the medical side and went to the surgical side.

Yeah I had to wait 2.5 months to even get in the seminar. So I've been waiting since March for pretty much nothing. Did you have a good experience with Carolina's Surgical? I may contact them.

I am near Hickory, but having surgery at UNC Chapel Hill. I am going tomorrow to meet with the surgeon and set my date. I hope it is within the next week.

Who is your Surgeon? I work at UNC Hospitals. I am going with Dr. Farrell.

Dr Farrell is doing my surgery. I REALLY like him. He is one of the few surgeons I have ever seen that didn't treat me like some oddball because of my abdomen.

Have you met with him yet? Do you have a surgery date yet?

GoodiDre, with southeast bariatrics you have the option to do the seminar online as long as you have a passing grade. Then once you take the test then you fax in the application and copy of insurance card and they call you the next day and my appointment was about 3 weeks out after they called me back.

      I just looked through all my old pants after my pre-op pants started getting to big. Keep in mind that I wear men's pants (usually cargos) because I am so tall 5'10"/5'11" ish. I also find that men's baggies tend to fit me better.
      I started out at a 44 in waist pant and quickly found that I was back down to my 42's. So even when thise got to be too big, I had to start pulling old clothes out of storage. After finding my 38's, I thought that these would not yet fit, but when I tried them on, they fit perfectly. I also found some older pants that now fit better than I remembered. What a relief! It's not like I can pop down to the store like I could do in the US and the styles here in Sweden are all skinnt jeans which I cant stand. I also found some 36's, but I'm not mentally ready to try those on yet. The biggest challenge will be buying women's clothing again.

      slow and steady wins the race.  don't get discouraged and just keep at it. Let your sleeve do its job and try not to stress yourself out.
      hope you are all having a great summer and enjoying what your sleeve has given you.

        Great reminder about how fast you can lose weight. The mind games we play with ourselves are the worst.
