Seeing a surgeon next week



Recommended Posts

I've thought more and more on this, and think I will do it. Like I wanted to, I have lost some weight, a couple of kilograms over the last few weeks. This research process has taught me a few valuable lessons. But looking at how far I have to go, I know I cant do it alone. I know statistics are WAY against me losing 30kg and keeping it off.

So I'm seeing somebody next week, and I'm going to an information session Wednesday night.

I think I really needed a bit of extra time to get my head around just what this will mean long term, but I'm a bit more comfortable with that now. Boy you just dont realise how many emotions and psychoses are tied up with your weight until you really analyse it do you?

Jachut~ Good luck in your continued research! Get all the info you can and take your time in making your final decision on getting banded! it is definatly a life changing decision but one that you will feel good about making... but only when you know you are ready will it come to you that this is the right desicion... not one to hurry into!You will still feel worried but you will know it is right for you. It is only natural to feel anxious we have all been where you are right now and understand what your feeling. Follow your heart!!! Wishing you lots of success and happiness no matter what you decide!!

Good luck in whatever decision you end up making, Jachut. And know that we're all here, anytime you need support or to vent or whatever.

Which surgeon are you seeing?

      Me: Hey Siri, Is it raining outside? (for my morning walks with the dogs)
      Siri: I don't think it's raining at the moment.
      Wet Dogs: Then why are we wet? This damn Siri person is more stupid than we are.

      I received my nutrition book and checklist today! I am so very excited (and a tad bit scared too) Each day this is becoming a reality!
      I created a new blog post about how BRAVE we all are for doing this. Because I think we are! Most of us know the horrors of people calling us nasty names, saying we can't control ourselves, we are easy targets for people's verbal attacks! But I feel we are BRAVE because we are taking control over our lives and creating a new world of happiness.

      Today I scheduled my mental evaluation and my nutritionist appointments. Yes, we are moving along quiet nice.  December 9th will be here before you know it.
      I have informed my inner circle of family about the surgery and I will be keeping it in my CORE!
