I’m a newbie here....so this may exist already or just be a terrible idea. Help for me in this pre op stage would be seeing photos reading experiences of those with similar body types as myself. I been over weight so long I don’t even remember/can’t envision myself at a healthy weight. 🤷🏾‍♀️

5’2”

240

Apple shaped

Oh, my goodness! We're almost twins. I'm 5'3" and started a year ago at 246. I was about 230 day of surgery, 4 months ago. I'm now 177. I was an apple shape before. Not really sure what I am now!

I been looking for you all my life...🤣🤣.

How has it been going? I am working on these last 10 lbs. that is my surgeons preop goal for me...230. All of my testing is complete, psych evaluation is done. We are purposely waiting until after the 1st of August because my employer is changing the Bariatric Surgery Benefit of our insurance plan (to our benefit) from a 50% coverage to 90-100%) who-hoo. All that savings will be going to supplements and Protein drinks😁. If you are willing would you share pictures?

I would share my "before " photo, but don't know how to post it here. I have not had any photos taken in a long time, so I don't have a current one. I look nothing like my "before" photo!

      I am now 10 days post op and I am down 16lbs. I had an allergic reaction to the glue my doctor used so I am still sore and trying to keep moving to not get stiff.

      Hello,  I am brand new on here. 
      The doctor qualified me yesterday for the surgery, so now I have to take 12 weeks of education classes and then he said they will schedule the surgery 4-6 weeks after I complete the classes. 
      I am excited to start this new journey.

      Am at the half-way mark of the six month pre-op program.  So excited!  Got clearance from psychologist this morning, so I scheduled my surgery consult for early March.  It is becoming more real now.  Have lost 18 pounds so far, since I began this journey on 12/18/19.

      So months ago, the Kid thought it would be funny to create an account on here and troll me with it.  Figured out it was her a few days later, and had a laugh about it.  She's been trolling me on it ever since.
      This morning I went on to post something and realized after the fact that I posted using her account as she was on my laptop last night 🙄
      Trolling over, Kid.
