  1. @NerdyLady Not rude at all! Trust me I'm trying lol
  2. Surgery went great! I'm having very little pain although the gas pains hit a couple hours ago. I've been up and walking around the hospital floor twice already doing 2 laps the last time. I'm so excited to start using my new tool! It's amazing - I was starving before surgery this morning and now I'm not even hungry. My only complaint is im so thirsty! No ice chips or anything to drink until tomorrow. I have a wet sponge I can use to moisten my mouth and lips but it's not doing much good. Thank you all for your prayers and support! It means so much!!!

  4. Thank you all so much for the support! I am definitely feeling the nerves grow today, but I'm ready. Surgery is at 9:30 in the morning!! I will make sure to post as soon as I can.
  5. That's awesome! Congratulations!!
  6. @LMBlack Congratulations on getting your surgery date! I am having the sleeve done next Tuesday, the 17th. I am so excited! Isn't it great to have supportive family? I feel so lucky that my family has been on my side this whole time. My mom came to all my doctor's appointments and nutritionist visits as well.
  7. @CJireh We will keep a seat warm for you!! Thank y'all!!!
  8. Congratulations! I LOVE the dress and boots outfit!!!
  9. Congratulations! You look fantastic!! Getting to a weight below my boyfriend is a big goal for me too. I'm excited for that day.
  10. Thank you @Trish13, @Gretta, and @BurgundyBoy! I'm so ready to change my life. I'm incredibly lucky and have an extremely supportive family. In fact, my mom is going to come spend at least a week at my house to help with my rambunctious puppy lol I will say that it's only been day 1 of the liquid diet and my stomach has been growling non stop today lol. But, I have to follow doctor's orders. Tomorrow I have my pre-op appointment with my surgeon in the morning and then the hospital in the afternoon. It's getting real!!
  11. @AustinJ I have to pay 20% since I haven't met my deductible. I work for a school district and of course our insurance starts over on September 1st. It comes out to a little under $4000.
  12. Scoot over - I'm joining the loser's bench!!
  13. So did I @CJireh! I was shocked when I got the call this morning. She asked if I wanted to do it next week or wait until next month. I told her I've waited long enough. Lol
  14. It only took two weeks to get approval!!!!! I got the call today. Surgery is next Tuesday, 10-17-17!! I start my liquid diet tomorrow for the next 7 days. I'm so excited but starting to get really nervous now!!
  15. Thank you, @Smashlee83 One week of waiting for approval down. This waiting is worse than all of the hoops I had to jump through for insurance. I think I can, I think I can, I think I can...
