I'm looking forward to my psychologist appointment on January 9th. Just wondering if I need to prepare anything or what to expect.

Do they weigh you at this appointment or is that just the Nurse and Dietitian appointments?

I feel like I'm so close yet so far away!!

Keep warm everyone!!

I guess it depends on where you are. I have only been weighed twice....the very first time I went to the clinic to meet the nurse, and then after my one month follow up after surgery. That's it. All the best to you - exciting times ahead!!

TWH only weighed me for my first appointment (Social Worker) and my Surgeon appointment so far. The Psychologist appointment was my favorite, it re-ignited my desire to go through with the surgery.

I've only been weighed at the nurse Appointment. One of the first things the social worker said to me was that they don't expect me to lose weight before surgery so I haven't really been focused on that. But then with Christmas and a bit of overindulging I'm worried they'll think I'm not a candidate. Just over thinking, I hope.

Looking forward to the appointment seeing as it was your favorite.

Thanks,

Karen

I worried about that too. I gained about 20lbs over the 16 months I waited and it really freaked me out like I was failing and going to get kicked out of the program. They never mentioned it. I do need weight loss surgery, afterall! lol

Good luck!
