Hi Lesha,

I was approved for my surgery last Friday and will have it on 20 Nov. I'm both excited and a bit apprehensive. I know this is not a cure all, but I feel it will give me an opportunity to start over with my eating habits. I also think that the "negative reinforcement" (throwing up) will help keep me on the straight and narrow. Don't know if you've had your psychological counseling yet, but my counselor recommended I join TOPS as a support group (no bariatric support group in my area) and to help me stay accountable for my weight. She also warned me to be careful that I don't transfer my addictive behavior to another area in my life (like gambling, spending money,etc.). How are you doing? Are you getting excited?

Hey my name is lesha. I'm a 30 years old female looking to chat with someone that has had or someone that is looking to have the gastric sleeve surgery. I'm due to have it done December 18th. Looking for a friend to talk to about it.
