Holy Cow - Its really happening!

Yes, I realize its been a while, or months since I've posted.  Good news is, nobody really reads this, so... I'm not really disappointing anybody :-)

I can't believe this is really happening!  I've now done my 1st surgical consult, my nutrition consult, my psych consult, and got all my paperwork in order.  The office is turning in my paperwork this week, and then the waiting game starts!  I am really hoping I can get banded the beginning of July.  Was hoping for the last week of june (which would have been a great week for work) but I'm dog sitting for a couple weeks, and it involves lots of work, so I figure surgery is out until afterwards.

So, I can't believe its actually happening!  I finally told a couple members of my family.  I really figured most would be very supportive, and they are so far.  We'll see how it goes.

Anyway, hoping to check in more often as things get going.


  1. I read it! I'm happy for you! Keep me updated!

  2. Congrats and starting on this adventure. I am just a little ahead of you. I have been approved and will be doing pre-op testing next week. I'm hoping for a surgery date in early May.

  3. Congratulations on starting your journey. I was banded 12/2/10 and was in the same boat you are in...morbidly obese (325 lbs) with no co-morbidities. I used to say that I was the healthiest fat person you would ever meet. I can honestly tell you that getting banded was THE BEST decision I've every made!! I am 16 months out and have lost 146 lbs. I can't begin to tell you how much my life has changed.

    Good luck to you and I look forward to following your journey.

  4. How exciting! Sounds like you're on your way!

  5. How exciting! I was banded 2/16/12 but I have a flipped port I am going in next week to correct! Can't wait to follow your journey

  7. So Excited for your new journey!! xxx
