My date is set and I'm thinking to myself - is this really the right thing? Yes, I KNOW it is! I need to be healthy - my joints just ache and other obese issues cause trouble.

But, I read over stories all the time here - both good and bad. Then wonder - What if I end up having consequences? And then scary in another way - what happens when I'm thin? (Having not really been anywhere near thin since 15.)

Anyway - I just had to put this out there to other understanding souls :)

I’m set for 10/15 and I question myself all the time.

I get scared but then I remind myself that it would be scarier if I don’t fix my health problems.

This can only happen by losing weight and keeping it off!

My date is 9/16, and I get nervous and question things too. Until I go out in public and see people that are older and over weight and how they struggle to just move and I don't want that at all. Good luck!

Truth!!! Going through Atlanta airport recently (largest airport in the world) I was soo tempted to get a disability ride. I got through it but if I weren’t getting the surgery bet I’d be looking at a scooter in my future

      RE: the running/training
      Honestly it started with me just doing laps around the kitchen that first post-op week.
      In a week, I graduated to walking up and down my street, then to walking around the block every day.
      The distance increased, then the speed.
      Then I started running little spurts during my walks, then to alternating 1km runs with 1km walks.
      And now I can do a continuous 10k (which I totally did for the first time this morning...so full of myself about it today, it’s disgusting.)
      Just do something everyday and slowly increase speed and duration, next thing you know you’ll be one of those odd “running people” (who I never understood pre-op, but now totally get, lol)

        Happy Sunday! I like weird people. Normal people are boring! :) I began following you and wanted to know if there are any other members you would recommend? My surgery is 8/29/19 and I want to learn as much as possible. Have a great day and thanks so much for the website.
