Hi all. I am in my forties. Wondering who else is on the boards in the same age bracket. Wondering how being sleeved has affected your life at this age. Do you wish you were sleeved sooner?

Just turned 40 in June. I'm having surgery in about 10 days and it is finally hitting me!

My old doctor proposed weight loss surgery wayyyy back in 2011. I'm sort of thankful I didn't do it then because it was the band and just sitting in the waiting room for a consult and having everyone discuss their adjustments made me uncomfortable. Also the surgeon seemed hurried, like he was running an assembly line, so I bolted.

Ideally I would have had surgery about 3 years ago when I was not in-between jobs, but it took me a lot mentally to get here, breaking out of my delusion that my yo-yoing was not real, that years were passing by and that it would happen without surgery tomorrow.

I'm also interested to hear what others in their 40s think.

Congratulations on taking this journey. I agree that I would not have been mentally ready a few years ago for this surgery either. Now is when it was supposed to happen.
