I just joined this forum last night, and was enrolled in my bariatric program today. All appointments are set for the next few weeks, I have no waiting period or anything crazy from insurance like I thought I would. I'm set for surgery sometime the week of the 22nd. I can't believe it all progressed so quickly. I have been researching for a year and it is all so serendipitous! I look forwarding to getting to know a few of you and going through this. I've only told my husband- It's exciting to tell others here! Congratulations everyone!

Welcome! I went to my seminar middle of November and I just finished my last appoint today. I can't believe I was able to get the consult, nutrition, EKG, psych and upper endoscopy all done in 2 weeks. Now its fingers crossed that insurance approves and looking for a possible surgery date 1 month from today. My choice to wait after new year so I can enjoy holidays with the family. Right now the only person I have told is my spouse. Do you mind me asking what insurance you have? I have BCBS and hoping no issues arise

Anyone else scheduled for January 2018? I have my surgery scheduled for January 11. I'm having to wait until next year because I had a stent put in back in December 2016. The anesthesiologist won't sign off until I have had the stent for at least a year and am able to come off of Plavix for the surgery.

Me.. end of January

Just a tip. Don't gain too much on your last hurrah before your pre op fast(mine is two weeks) I gained 10 and now I'm struggling to make my required goal by the 12th . I added so much unnecessary stress to my journey. So don't do that.

January 8th surgery date. Anyone as nervous as I am? Also has anyone tried a Multivitamin that they like? I tried BariMelts and I do not like them.

      Had my gastric sleeve surgury on 12/28. I have lost about 15 pounds since surgery but have hit a stall. It is soooo frustrating! Any advice is greatly appreciated

        Just be patient. It sounds like a pat answer, but it is literally the only thing you can do to crush the dreaded 3 week stall!

      2. MissSimpson

        We have the same surgery day and the same problem. I’ve lost about 20, then stopped. I’m hardly eating anything, logging everything, getting my water and proteins. I don’t know what’s wrong. It’s so frustrating.

      I'm doing so well on the new plant-based way of eating! It's been 1 month since my final diet visit, where I found out I had gained about four pounds since my previous visit in November. That meant I had only lost 3 pounds overall from March-December 2017. Ugh, sad trombone. However, in the last 3 weeks of eating a plant-based diet I've lost 13 pounds from my December visit weight! And that includes Christmas and a vacation! So definitely not a "perfect" month by any means. I'm really hoping this way of eating will support my goal of reaching and maintaining 100% of excess weight lost.

        Hey whatever works! I've had a few friends go plant-based and drop a lot of weight naturally.
