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

      Donated 50 lbs of Jeans and another 30lbs of shirts to Salvation Army. 
      Had to go buy some new clothes that I used to hate, but now kind of like. Trying not to buy too many though as I know in a few months I'll be donating them as well.

      Hello everyone! I just joined the forum today. Had my surgery almost 3 months ago and lost about 44 pounds. Most of the weight was lost within the first month, and my weight loss slowed down almost to a stop. I became very frustrated. Talked with my dietitian several times, and it turns out I haven't been eating enough. Who knew! I was eating around 500 calories a day, and exercising daily. Well, I had to up my intake to 800 to 1,000 calories. I'll see what happens.
