A friend of mine had it and did very well so I mentioned to a very good friend of mine about me getting it and her reaction was I don't think you need it you just have a little belly. That was about a year ago and I didn't want anyone talking me out of it. Did you want to follow each other for support?

I had a few reactions like that too but they werent in my body and they didnt know how i felt with my own personal being if that makes sense lol. My close family and friends supported me and thats all that mattered to me. Good luck with your surgery!

I got a call from the surgeons office today & I missed it. Its so close I can taste it. I left a message and look forward to calling them back in the morning. I began my Journey at End of October 2018, but due to a promotion and my 1st grandbaby girl in February I slowed down the process. I got insurance approval last and now just waiting for the date, and last pre-op appointment w/Surgeon. I thought I was going to be a Juney but I will definitely be with everyone here in July. I will reply with the date when I know more. Looking forward to learning more about ya'll and joining you on the bench.

Yay super excited for you! 😀

Hi everyone! First time posting! My surgery will be July 10th! So excited and nervous. My biggest fear is that it won't work. I've dieted all my life and while I can always lose weight, I always gain it back and I think I've messed up my metabolism so bad. I can survive on nothing, so I'm scared the surgery won't help that much. I know it probably sounds irrational, but that's my biggest fear, aside from dying of course and leaving my children with my ex....

I feel the same way ive been trying to be healthy my whole life and ive gained every pound ive lost. This is why im going to this extreme. Wish you the best of luck everything will work out! 😀

I had some comments like that towards me to but they werent in my body and they didnt know what ive been through or what i felt so i ignored them and only told the people that supported me which still do to this day. Good luck on your journey its gonna be the best time of your life!

Yes, I'm on Day 4 of the 2-week plan. Mine allows 4oz meat per day the first week, so that and popsicles are the only things I get to chew. I'm on my 11th sugar-free ice pop and it probably won't be my last of the day. I'm not calorie restricted, but I'm averaging 850 cals/day.
