Thank you so much. *hugs* my time slot to be at the Hospital is 730am. I'm really excited. Also of course nervous. I'm ready to begin this journey. Not looking forward to the pain thats gonna be coming. But it will be worth it. Looking forward to using my new tool.

I'm officially on the losers bench. I had the gastric sleeve.

This morning the just had me drink some Water and I tolerated it ok. So now I'm on juice. If that is ok. I get to have coffee or tea.

The pain is a little worse then I thought. But since I can now swallow things I had oral pain meds. The IV pain meds didnt work as long.

Congrats Debbi! Welcome to the losing team!

The pain will take a week or so to subside, most of it will be gas from hell. After that I had major fatigue for about 6 weeks--all normal. Good luck.

On Wednesday I had my biggest scale victory I entered 2vill and I have only been waiting for that since before Christmas. I was close then, hovering at 308-310 and finally broke through and this morning I weighed in at 297. I am so stoked!!!!!!

      Hey all! So I went in for my weight management class. I thought that would be my last one but I actually have to wait until the nutritionist clears me. She has to decide if I'm ready. I''m not mad at it. It looks like my surgery will be happening in the summertime. So instead of focusing on the surgery date, I'm putting my energy into losing weight and making sure all these appointments are taken care of. It feels like doing mini quests on a video game before trying to fight the BIG BOSS. I'm not ready for the BIG BOSS yet. haha. Feeling pretty good!

      Finished my 6th and final NUT appointment yesterday.  Everything is done except the psych eval and submittal to insurance.  I did everything required of me including the 100 pages plus of food tracking, I lost 5% of my total weight, and I went to every NUT appointment.  
      Hoping for the best, things seem to be lining up well for me and in the end, I think I will be able to fully have my wife on board with this whole thing.  She says she is, but I know she doesn't think I should do it.  Just like I replied to another post earlier, i'm doing this either way, it's my decision at this point and I know I can get her to come around at some point and maybe even convince her to look into it as well.
      Also, I just started with an APAP machine a couple weeks ago and "holy sh*t" has my quality of life improved greatly so far.  I wish I had looked into this years ago.  I didn't think I had apnea until I had the study done and i stopped breathing an average of 12 times an hour.  That's nuts...

      I'm 13 years out from having weight loss surgery. I would have to say it was the best choice I have ever made. I have been successful BUT now I'm feeling like I'm sliding back and getting comfortable with old eating habits. I absolutely do not want to ever go back to where I came from. I'm just needing support and some pointers to get me focused again. Any one have any thoughts or suggestions. Thank you in advance for any help you can give me.
