I joined spark people in september of 2007, more than 5 years ago, ive been up and down and kept finding myself back to about the same weight or more. Well this year in September i realized we were close to meeting our out of pocket max for our insurance, I decided that i should look into gastric bypass surgery. Looking into it turned into me determined to have it done before the end of the year. These things take time to get approved by insurance but luckily my insurance is one of the easier ones to convince that its necessary. i was originally expecting to be cutting it close and possibly having surgery in the last week of december, much to my surprise on friday nov 30th the nurse called and told me to expect a surgery date on dec 19th, i was excited that i would be a little sooner than expected... then mon dec 3rd she called surgery was set for mon dec 10th!! it def didnt give me much time to prepare! I was excited, hubby was nervous, and we were both surprised it was all happing so quickly! So here i am about 7 days post op, im doing pretty well, on a clear liquid diet and having a little trouble gettingenough liquids in, but tomorrow i start the full liquid diet and suspect it will get easier as the stomach swelling goes down. I cant even put into words how excited i am to finally be able to play with my kids and have the energy that ive been lacking for SOOOO long!!

    Hi Katie...thank you for commenting/reading my blog. WB stands for Wheat Belly and I can tell you that adopting the WB lifestlye very much compliments my sleeve. The WB group is very supportive and active, check us out if you like.

    Of course please follow your doc's instructions for healing your new tummy, but when you get to where you can eat "normally", I would def give WB a look see.

    I had to go to Mexico to have my sleeve and am very pleased with the results. Not preaching, but please remember this type of surgery is only a tool. A lot of inner healing has taken place since my surgery and finding a simple nutrition program has complimented it all!

    I look forward to our sharing and friendship! Take care of "you", then you can recipatate. :) emoticon
