  1. Thank you!!! Keep the tips coming ... I've eliminated all drinks minus my must have black coffee and only water. I will be working on the low carb plan.
  2. Welcome!!
  3. Hi All- I am new to this board. I have been considering bariatric surgery for awhile and have finally taken the steps to start this process. I have a 2.5 year old daughter at home that took my spouse and I awhile to conceive. We want to grow our family and have been having some failures. Long story short if I needed fertility help I would need to be down at least 60 pounds. Knowing that I am 31 and time isn't slowing down I made the realization to myself that this needs to happen. I am excited. My husband had this surgery so I have an awesome group of people around me. But support from others is always great. I am a candidate for either Sleeve or RNY and am trying to make that decision now as well as loose the recommended amount of weight before surgery. My provider and I have discussed all pro's and con's and he is supportive in what I decide. I'm open to any opinions any of you may have. I am excited to read more on this board, meet some of you and find all the helpful information I may need along the road!
  4. Hi Everyone- I have started my journey and am debating between Sleeve Gastrectomy and Gastric Bypass. Regardless of which surgery I chose I need to lose 16 pounds prior to surgery. Not a huge amount, but enough. Does anyone have any great recommendations or meal plans they followed to get down to a goal weight prior to surgery. I know I need to be more active than what I am currently doing. I want to lose this soon so that I can have my surgery done before the end of the year so I don't hit 2 deductibles. I am newer to this forum so I appreciate anything! Thanks!
