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.

      So my surgery anniversary date is on the 24th of this month, but I had my 1-year follow up early with my surgeon this morning (I have another 1-year followup at the hospital on Monday to get my bloodwork and labs done).
      Anyhoo...my surgeon was very pleased with my results (and so where the office staff apparently, because 3 of the front desk ladies came by my exam room to give me props/high fives/generally gawk at me).
      But get this: he asked if I would be willing to come in for a future photoshoot so that I could be on a poster! And I was all, ummmm....no thanks, LOL.

      Today was a really tough day and I turned to food (and a watered down glass of wine). The interesting part was that I felt REALLY full after eating half my go to cheat snack, tortilla chips with cheese. So the GBP is doing its job!

      The only way I can tell that I'm losing weight is from the scale and my clothes "getting bigger".
