Yo-Yo String is Being Cut Soon



HI!  I have been on this site since the Spring 2016.  I found this site by accident and glad I did find it.  All the blogs and responses have been a huge help in my surgery journey.  I could honestly say that I did not ever consider this for me until this year.  I am getting older and still struggling with my weight.  I am done struggling and hopefully this is the resolution that I have looking for most of my life.  The never ending yo-yo but I am cutting the yo-yo string on October 19, 2016 that is when my sleeve will be performed.  I am more excited and less nervous at this point.    Chances are that will change on the 19th.  I have a few doubting Thomas's but mostly positive people supporting my decision.  I have decided that I am not buying any clothes until everything is falling off.  I have all different sizes in my closet which I will once again put them on.  I cant wait for that moment when I put whatever on and its not a struggle or depressing.    Thank for reading my thought.  Any advice or whatever would be appreciated.

I really like the "yo-yo string" analogy. Congrats on getting your surgery date!  Don't let the doubting Thomases bother you. They don't have any say in your healthcare choices so their opinions don't matter. Best of luck to you! I love seeing the calendar on this site with everyone's surgery dates. I'm just staring my steps toward insurance approval. I'm excited for the day I can announce my surgery date.

Hi Thirty Theresa,

Finding out my date was excited and relieved at the same time.  This is truly a journey that we go on when we undertake this procedure.  I do not know why anyone thinks that this procedure is the easy way out of obesity.  Who ever thinks that way truly has no clue about the trails and tribulations we have to endure.  Thank you for reading my blog. 

Two weeks and counting down.  Getting my protein shakes and vitamins purchased this weekend.

Welcome, great to have you here.  I'm very excited for your pending surgery.  A whole new world will be open to you soon.  I won't be easy, there will be days, but as you see the real you emerge you'll be thankful for the struggle, its worthwhile.
