Ok, so I've been poking around this site for awhile and today I decided to make myself known. Why? Because this is a crucial day when I will really feel like I'm on the road to making a huge change in my life via gastric bypass.
Since Feb, I have been diligently jumping through every hoop and roadblock on a very extensive check off list and the last hurdle has been the requirement to lose 10 pounds. I was supposed to have met that goal last Tuesday, but was 3.5 pounds off. Today I get a second bite at the apple, so to speak, and I am happy to report that the scale records a ten pound loss. I really don't want to "cheat" but I feel that I need to visit the sauna before my appointment today just to ensure the scale THERE reads the same as my scale here. I absolutely need to have this final thing checked off today because everything else gets delayed until I do and with the scheduling outlook, I want to have my surgery before the summer ends and my daughter goes back to college.
I'm doing this surgery to not only lose weight, but first and more importantly, to no longer be diabetic or have sleep apnea. My weight today is 257 and my goal weight is 165.
