The Decision

Pondering. I'm still pondering. The list of endless possibilities.

I went to my first seminar this past Monday. I was very discouraged. All I heard was what I couldn't do. Perhaps it was the beginning of the "moon in my cycle" that made me do it, or the fact that our A/C was broke at home, but I was just plain out "put-out" when I left the seminar. Luckily, I had stopped at McD's and had a cheeseburger and french fries waiting in the car to comfort me. And then it hit me - DUH.

So, I opened my mind a bit and starting thinking. And thinking, and thinking, and thinking. I did a little research and then I thought some more.

Today, August 10, 2011 - I called and made an appointment for a consultation with a Surgeon. A Bariatric Lap-Band Surgeon. MY Surgeon.

Let the games begin.

  1. BTW - I'm not telling anyone but close family and a few choice friends. Well, and the entire blogger network. So, don't tell anyone, ok?

  2. Your secret is safe with me :) Thanks for stopping by my blog. Why did the seminar seem so discouraging? Can you please elaborate? Thanks!

  3. Good for you for making the decision... I think that may be the hardest part. My surgery is scheduled for Sept 16th, so I could definitely be wrong. Sorry to hear your first seminar was such a let down, I'm sure your consult will be better :)

  7. I'm 6 weeks post op and I've been blogging daily. I was private pay and interview and attending many surgeons and support groups. I thought I had my mind made up and got thrown a financial curveball 1 week before surgery - switched to a surgeon that I fully trusted, and I'm very happy. I too, did not tell many friends/family. In the end, I was much happier that way. Some I told after surgery, some will never know, but my body, my decision. Good luck to you in your journey! here is my blog addy if you'd like to visit :)
