Advice Wanted



Recommended Posts

Okay so is it odd that am this happy :lol: to be sliced and diced. (Apologies if i offended someone) I got the call this morning about my surgery after fighting over a broken fax machine and which doctor is in the network and so forth i was approved and set up just got to go in for labs and i'll be ready for surgery december 5th. I am concerned about you know things going wrong :blink:

However my need for this far outweigh my concerns. I am ready for a new life. I have been on this site for a few months now and i have to say reading all of your stories and seeing all the progress really inspires me that i can do this too. Any advice that you may want to share with me before my surgery?

Dox, I don't think any of us are here because we spent our lives making good decisions, at least when it comes to food. I think the best advice I can offer you (and I'm only three months out, so I'm no expert) is to follow your program, seek advice and counsel from your nutritionist and move your body as much as you can post-surgery. You'll be amazed at the changes to come. Good luck.

      I met with my surgeon on Friday.. I've completed all my tests and all my nutrition meetings as well as meeting the weight loss requirements for my insurance. We are officially submitting to insurance for approval and I was given a surgery date of January 16th 2020 (13 days before my birthday!) Fingers crossed all goes through

      Ok, now im getting old...my body gets me up at my normal 5am dog walk even when it's the weekend, vacation, and most importantly when I'm sick. So now that I have more energy, my body wants to make sure I suffer even longer during the day when I have a cold! Damn being healthy again! (:D)

      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
