Appointment #1

Today I have an appointment with Dr. Tim. I made an appointment with him after the seminar with Dr. Daniel - who said "Shop around, seriously, shop around. You should be 100% comfortable with your surgeon and weight loss team." I'm still waiting to see when my appointment is with Dr. Daniel, but as for my appt with Dr. Tim, I'm looking forward to seeing what he has to say.

I'll keep you posted!

Hello and welcome to my blog.

I'm not sure where I want this blog to, but I'm starting on my journey to weight loss via weight loss surgery.

I have been overweight since I was a child. As a "tween" and teen, I was very social and played numerous high-intensity sports. Yet even with 4+ hours of exercise a day, I was the largest girl on the court, field, or ice.

Years of fighting the weight, binging, diets, eating only 500 calories a day for months, I've decided I need help. I've read this a lot on the WLS support forums, and heard it from others often... but this is NOT the "easy way out." This is a serious commitment to weight loss and adapting a healthy lifestyle. It's going to be hard as hell, but I know I'm down for the challenge.

So after words of wisdom from a great friend who went thru WLS herself, and the support and best wishes from loving family, I've attended my first seminar and have been notified that my insurance will cover the surgery 100%.

If you'd like to comment, lurk, or PM me I'd love it! If not, thanks anyway :)
