Good morning King and Queens
I had my consult yesterday and it was awesome
Dr.Shillingsford is super cool. 
My insurance is approved I have 6 months with the nutritionist, blood work and a psych eval. 
We went in depth about what my progress would look like and how beneficial the sleeve would be for me. His team was so warm and information, the made me feel so comfortable. I'm excited and raring to go.
I'm 42, 5'11" and weighed in at 276.8 (I lost 2 pounds lol)

My partner (fiancé) went with and asked questions and took notes, she supports my journey 100%, we both left feeling welcome and well informed. Today I have made my appointment for initial blood work, (I still have to schedule my psych eval and the nutritionist, onward and upwards my friends)

Love and light

I agree with CJ. 6 Months seemed like a long time for me in the beginning too. Turned out to be a blessing though.

Now you have plenty of time to learn and prepare for this wonderful journey.
