Hmmn, around Central Ohio, and especially Columbus they book you 6 weeks after your consults and insurances fall into place. I got my Surgery date on July 17, 2018 and had my RNY on September 5th, 2018 at 7 AM. That was a wonderful, life-changing Day for ME, ranks up with the Delivery Dates of each child, the Day I married my late husband, and my Graduation Day.Would you believe that was 56 years ago and some of my former classmates are the same as they were then. I see 5 or 6 out around town, most of us didn't retain our Girlish figures but mine is starting to emerge from my Fat Shell, it has been hid for years, you know.😛and I ❤ being in smaller sizes. Even though my whole body looks a train wreck, it is getting better, and I am starting to recognise myself in mirrors I pass- you see I look radically different than I once did. Ms Puffy Cheeks has left town forever, I hope they like the New Me, if not they will just have to come to understand because I AM NOT GOING BACK THERE! Not Now not ever! Too Many Good facets to this all! It was more than worth it to ME!

Mine was about six weeks out because my surgeon was booked up that far on her calendar.

Got approve for surgery in early June 2019 but my surgeon only had opening end of July and early August. I picked Aug 6. I was not in a rush and it gives me time to fill out my FMLA form for work.

      Looks like I need people around to complete a 10K.  I tried to do one by myself this afternoon and I gave up at around the 7km mark.  Gonna try again on Friday, but I may have to look into joining a running club...

      My Surgeon asked me a question the other day and i didn't give it a lot of thought at the time.
      He asked "do you tell"
      we were talking about peoples reaction to seeing me since i lost such a large amount of me.
      I answered that i do tell if they ask but that it seems most everyone is afraid to mention it if they haven't seen me in a while or they decided they already know the answer so they don't need the truth from me (we all know those types)
      I have had exactly one family friend come right out and ask me how i lost so much weight this year and i told her i had Gastric Sleeve.
      I am sure family has passed it around to other family (you have that type family don't you? or is it just me)  
      So that left me wondering "do you tell" and i dont mean right at surgery time. more like a year or so down the road do you say how or do you just say cut out the sugar and carbs and WAALAA
      Its a real personal choice to open yourself up to that kind of criticism and we know all about how we took the "Easy" way and yada yada yada.
      hope everyone is having a great week
