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

Woo hoo! Glad to hear that your consult went well. I'm happy to hear that your fiancée went to your appointment. A strong support system is crucial for your success  

You are 42? I thought I looked good at 44 but you take it to a whole other level!

Congratulations and welcome @MamieLynn! The process can seem a bit much and may seem to stall out at times, but just keep focused on your goals and knowing that "ThinnerTimes" are ahead!
