  1. I've completed everything required by my insurance but one last visit to the nutritionist! That appointment is September 18th and then it is just time to play the waiting game with my insurance. Fingers crossed that I will be able to have surgery sometime in October or beginning of November! I'm so excited! I've been reading these boards almost everyday and I have learned so much from everyone!
  2. That is so awesome!! Congratulations @Karimeaway!!
  3. I'm with everyone else. I can definitely see a change too! Way to go!!

  6. I have a doctor's appointment tomorrow afternoon to receive my referral. I'm excited to get started!!
  7. Hi everyone! My name is Mandy and I'm 34 years old. Bariatric surgery is something I have been thinking about for a little while now, but I've been too scared to actually jump in until now. I have an appointment with my regular doctor next week so she can point me in the right direction. I am trying to decide between lap band and the gastric sleeve. Any comments, recommendations, etc are very welcome for a nervous newbie like me. I've been looking around the message board and it seems like everyone is very supportive and I'm looking forward to getting to know everyone.
