Hi. So where are you in the process. I live in the Uk. Had a band fitted 5 years ago. Seems to be going ok. Like most people you get your ups and downs so a buddy is a great idea someone to hold your hand so to speak. Anyway if you want to chat I’m here. Andrew.

Hi Andrew [emoji112] I would love to chat. I'm just getting started honestly. I have had one visit with my nutritionist and labs done. I'm still a few months away but not really going as smoothly as I would have liked.

So what’s going wrong. When I was pre op they where more interested in my money ! I only had a pre op appointment then straight into surgery. Admittedly I didn’t have any other health issues thankfully. I must admit when I decided to have the op I just wanted to get on with it. Only had to wait approx 4 weeks. How much do you need to loose. I was a little worried about food prior and post operation minced up food ukkkk. As it turned out it wasn’t to bad. Always have the final goal in your mind. Just think how great you will look and feel once the weight goes. Only downside you have to go out and purchase loads of new clothes. Andrew

Surgery of this kind is always a bit scary. I had the band since 2010 and revised in 2015. I am pending RNY and working on getting mentally prepared for it.

Andrew- so true about the clothing. Made many a run to the second hand stores around my surgeon's office as my size went up and down. Only kept 30 lbs off but I am down 3 sizes solid and 4 is a bit tight these days. With the band wide open, it is expected.

I don't have a date yet. I think i have all my pre-op stuff done. I am going to email the case manager nurse and check. I didn't do so hot on the psych eval so they recommended therapy. Have been to 2 sessions so far and found out I don't need the therapist's recommendation to move forward. I have some other medical stuff that will take a week to finish off the medications and I want that completed before surgery is scheduled. Chances are it will be a while so i am going to find out.

Nothing worse than hanging around waiting for something to happen. Well impressed they are making you go through all those examinations with doctors ect.

Well im going to bed now it’s starts to get late here and I have work in the morning. So have a great day young lady and hopefully speak soon. Andrew

I am gained quite a bit of weight because I think I need to eat everything I won't be able to eat after surgery. Also it's hard when The waiting games for my insurance to cover my surgery I have to lose 15 lb before I even get the surgery. I wish I could just pay outright that would be sweet.

And for some reason the thought of buying all new clothes seems a little more enjoyable than your portraying in to be LOL

Hello. Hope your well today. So young lady. Stop binge eating your putting. All that good work to waste. Plus the more you eat the longer it's going to be before the insurance pays up

      I'm trying to give these people all my labs and it's so hard! I had to do number 2 in a bag and send it in for the lab to test it. CHILE! Why did I poop in the container and when I went to drop it off, that part of the hospital was closed?!  Sigh. AWKWARD. I'll drop it off today after work tho. Feeling great!

      Getting a little nervous about post surgery life adaptation. I really want to succeed, but habits are so hard to break.

      Good news and Meh news...
      Meh: so I think I experienced/am experiencing my first stall-ish since surgery and now I get how frustrating it can be!  So annoying to wake up every morning to watch the scale report a gain or loss of the same 1.5 pounds for over 2 weeks.  *sigh*.  Some say put the scale away, but I log my weight every morning to get a daily moving average of my weight.  So long as this moving average is not heading upwards (which it isn’t and hasn’t since post-op) then I am good with my curent “minimalist” weekly weight loss rate, however small I think it is 🙄.
      However.
      The Good news:
      To allow for some self back patting, and to remind myself of the bigger picture, I set a bunch of interim goals/milestones... a few of which are 10lbs increment weight loss goals:
      So this morning, after hovering within 1.5 pounds of an interim goal for over 2 weeks, I weighed in at 164.8, and officially lost 70 lbs!  In 4 months.  That is 30% of my starting body weight.  Or the equivalent of my 10 year old neice. How crazy is that.
      Next Goal: weigh in at 162lbs to be merely overweight (and not obese!)
