Hi Everyone, I am super excited to start this new journey to become healthy . I was skinny as a teenager and in my twenties. But after several back and neck surgeries, i started putting on weight. I have two adult children and my husband who are very supportive.

My EGD is tomorrow 9/25 and surgery (Gastric Sleeve) is scheduled for Oct 2. My surgeon is Dr. St. Laurent in Cypress Texas.

If anyone has any helpful hints that they would share with me, I would greatly appreciate it.

Sending prayers and a hug across the miles, I was an Early September, even with its trials it is SO worth it. Would never go back, I am many years older to have done this, can't say I didn't know about this, I knew, I just bought into the Too Old, Too Broke-down, No Surgeon would touch YOU and the most hurtful Move to one side, You are blocking a Younger More Worthy Person.
But my Clarity moments came and I am so Thankful it was not TOO LATE for ME!😛👍💓

      So my surgery anniversary date is on the 24th of this month, but I had my 1-year follow up early with my surgeon this morning (I have another 1-year followup at the hospital on Monday to get my bloodwork and labs done).
      Anyhoo...my surgeon was very pleased with my results (and so where the office staff apparently, because 3 of the front desk ladies came by my exam room to give me props/high fives/generally gawk at me).
      But get this: he asked if I would be willing to come in for a future photoshoot so that I could be on a poster! And I was all, ummmm....no thanks, LOL.

        I guess I could, but the idea of being out there for all to see just skeeves me out! Nope, not for me ;)

      Today was a really tough day and I turned to food (and a watered down glass of wine). The interesting part was that I felt REALLY full after eating half my go to cheat snack, tortilla chips with cheese. So the GBP is doing its job!

      The only way I can tell that I'm losing weight is from the scale and my clothes "getting bigger".
