July 23. I have been waiting not so patiently since mid April to be cleared due to problem with my labs. All of today was spent waiting in Dr. Office. Sent to lab to reorder blood work. More waiting but finally cleared for surgery.

Just got my surgery date today...it is on July 1st! Alternating between being happy and thinking "Oh, my God, what if I die??"

Literally when I told my husband, he asked about my 'last wishes'...and no, he was not joking/being funny/teasing, etc.

Really sucked some of the happiness out of the moment.

Thats how im feeling too because i am only 22 years old and i have never had surgery in my life and July 18th is coming extremely fast lol So im anxious but so excited. Id rather feel nervous for something that's going to help me tremendously then nervous to see if im going to have diabetes when i go to my PCP for check ups every year. This is gonna be so worth it and congratulations!! This definitely isn't easy but you got this 😀

      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".
