So---first post here. Just got the call that insurance approval was in--they said I should hear in a day or two about scheduling the pre-op visit and the surgery! I've been thinking about doing WLS since June 2016. Dropped off the paperwork in Feb. 2017--it has been a slow process, with a battle with h pylori that wouldn't go away. I can't believe that this might actually happen this year. Hoping I hear tomorrow and can have the surgery in early December. But I am all of a sudden anxious about the 1-2 weeks before and after the surgery.

Normal to be nervous. I am also. You’ve come this far, it might be hard but think of the end result.

So---I have my date--Next Wednesday! Having a terrible headache today--which I think is due to the no carbs, no sugar diet I'm on per surgery. Trying to get through this...I know it will all be worth it!

      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.  💪
