I am a 38 yo woman, single, no kids and never married. I realized that I am not getting any younger and that I need to take the bull by the horns so to speak. Last year I was chronically sick with bronchitis, so prednisone was my "friend". After 6 months of that, I was up over 300lbs. I worked my fanny off over the last year to get that weight off, however now I am at 265. (This was before I started the VSG pre op diet). I am now down to 260, and waiting until the 20th to have my nurtition classes and my pre op eval.
This last weekend I went in and had all my blood work, EKG and my chest xray done. Yeah, a couple of my labs were not so hot. Nothing like putting reality in your face like that after being in denial for so long. I wanted to try to lose the weight on my own, but now I realize I can not do it alone, I need medical intervention.
Here I am - hoping to gain experience and learn something from those of you who have had VSG and not feel oh so alone in this process.
Highest weight - 320
Lowest weight - 260
