So, December 18 is the big day, however, I’m beginning to get super nervous. So afraid of the unknown. What if something goes wrong? What if I don’t lose any weight and have to continue my bp meds? So glad I only have to do the liquid diet for one week. Even that has me nervous for fear of failure! I’m hoping this sleeve will help to change my life. We shall see! 🤞🏽

complications are pretty rare - I'm sure you'll sail through just fine! Also, if you follow your surgeon's plan, you WILL lose weight!

I'm sure you'll do great. Finding this forum really will prepare you for what to expect and how to cope with it. There are some negative peeps here, and I don't think the downers are inherently mean, they are going through a rough patch, but mostly a bunch of folks that DO care how it goes for you, and after you are "on the other side" with us you'll help the next batch of WLS newbies, Glad you joined us!

I was nervous too, but every time I started to feel nervous I told myself I was ready to move forward and leave my old ways behind. And the biggest help was that I gave the worry to God! Remember, the entire procedure, from admitting to actual surgery, is a few hours out of your life... compared to a lifetime of a new you!

      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.

      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
