I had one last question for WLS patients: Regrets?

The response was overwhelming. The only regret was not doing it ten years ago. In fact, most people said exactly those words. People were delighted by the dietary changes their bodies forced them to make, the health improvements, and the drastic and exciting changes in their bodies.

So, as I wrote earlier, I did a ton of research and finally decided to go forward with weight loss surgery, and I chose to have the sleeve at Brigham and Women's Hospital.

I had the operation last year in October.

And now I can agree that I wish I'd done it ten years ago.
Make it twenty.

(More coming about my own experiences with WLS)

    So you DID already have it?! I thought you decided you were going to have it...must've misread the initial blog post.

    I look forward to hearing more about your experience....I'm still scared and need to get my emotional demons dealt with before I could conceive of making some of the changes to my eating that you've mentioned.

    Wait, I'm confused....."I had the operation last year in October. "
    YOU had the surgery??? I thought you were trying to decide whether or not to have it? You were quoting someone?
    Yous is in the future...and you have decided to get the sleeve???? If so, must feel good to feel ready, think about it and have a decision. Good for you !!
