Welcome, you will find a lot of good info here. I personally was denied after being pre-approved and going through a 4 month program but ultimately appealed and got approved. Boy, was it stressufl though. Wishing you the best. I just had my surgery 3 days ago..

I am having the gastric sleeve procedure. I have about 100 pounds to lose. I reside in Atlanta...long time dieter. Typical story lose then gain. I have finally decided to do something abiut my weight because I have become recluse. Which is no life since I have a 4 year old. So I need to maje the change because I want something different fir her. Forgive me, I've rambled so that was all over the place!!!!

I just wanted to say welcome to the site. I was the same as you, I became very reclusive. Now that I've shed a lot of weight I love to go out everyday. Even just to go to the store and get dinner for my husband. Mostly for him, because I can't eat much and we way different foods. Good luck on your upcoming surgery!👏

      My life is WONDERFUL
      JUST PLAIN WONDERFUL
      I am 10 weeks post op today. I have lost 43 pounds!
      I walk 3-5 miles daily and I have picked up Hoola Hooping! I am on a dang roll and I love it.
      SO HAPPY I GOT THE SLEEVE!
      Sorry I have been absent on here but I really have made it a point to take care of ME. My exercise time is precious so I have to get it in before working or anything else.
      I wish there was MORE than WORDS to express to you just how wonderful I feel!
      I even created a new blog post today! https://sabrinagoddess.com/create-a-life-that-you-love

      Ok I had surgery on Jan 27 2020 so I am 3 weeks out and have lost 32 lbs  I wish I had this done sooner. Now just trying to figure out different things to eat so I am not eating the same thing over and over. I did order some stuff today from the Bariatric Store and that stuff should be here in time for my next phase. I have a goal of 50 lbs by the first of June hope that is attainable. Good luck to every one on this journey
