I met with my plastic surgeon 5 years ago the last time I lost a lot of weight pre-VSG. I didn't follow through with it and here I am again wanting plastics. I have another consultation with him in 2 weeks (it's been too long since the last one, so I have to do it again understandably). But his February special was a substantial discount on the LBL. Surgery needs to be done before 5/31. Except it had to be claimed by today (20% deposit, refundable if he doesn't think I'm ready or the dates don't work or I chicken out). So I bit the bullet and put my deposit down. Yikes! It just got more real!
I've read so much here, but I'm going to have lots of questions for all of you...
