Somewhat lurker? Mostly newbie

Recommended Posts

Hello, I'm new here. I am in San Diego and just barely beginning this journey. I have my seminar sept 9th, and after that I guess I can schedule my consult. I'm super ready for this. I've researched, watched videos, perhaps lurked these forums some. Currently quitting smoking so I won't be denied. I am 3 days, nearly 4 days smoke free. i still have questions regarding the gastric bypass and hoping to find answers here!

Welcome, Jolene! I think quitting well ahead of time is a great idea - suddenly trying to quit everything at once sounds harder. There's a lot of wisdom here, as well as support, so I think you've come to the right place :)

I started dieting and felt like crap, realized if I switch my diet now and try to quite smoking without being able to eat, I would fail my diet. Additionally, I was worried that if I started my diet and lost 15 lbs before my consult, I'd have to lose the 10% based on my weight at the consult. And we all know how hard it is to lose weight as is.

Welcome!  I have never regretted having my gastric bypass - it allowed me to become healthy, thin and much for active.  Life in great.  My only regret is that I waited so long to have the surgery.

I suggest that you read lots of postings here at TTF, and then let us know if you still have any questions.

By the way, you goal weight seems a little high for someone who is 5' 3".

We are here to support you.

Welcome Jolene! Congrats on quitting smoking. My best friend is a smoker who has tried to quit many times. I've seen how hard it can be.
