I still can't believe it! 3 Weeks from tomorrow I will be boarding a plane to Cancun for my gastric bypass! My sister and Iare having it done together we really aren't telling anyone yet, but I feel like I can express my anxiety, excitement, fears, and questions here. Thanks for listening! Hehehe

Congrats!!  How exciting and amazing it will be for you to have your sister with you!  My mom and I had surgery the same day, both got lap bands back in 2004 together-I had surgery first hehehe and was recovering while she had surgery.  It was nice to be together.  I wish you a speedy recovery!

That's awesome! Have you reached your goal weight? We are really nervous about our surgeries because our mom won't be with us lol we are both big babies! hahah

I did reach my goal weight it took about 2 yrs and I maintained for 5 yrs.  My band malfunctioned last April and I regained some weight not having any restriction.  I just had a revision last week to gastric bypass and so far so good.  I have my follow up appointment on Friday so I'm excited to see how I do.  You'll both do great but remember try not to compare yourselves and your weight loss because you are both unique and will have unique journeys!
