Surgeon Testimonial

Nauveed Iqbal
What can I say about Dr. Iqbal. He is the best. From the moment I went to his office for a consultation I knew he had to be my surgeon. He never rushed any of my questions and he's always explained things in terms us \"normal\" people understand. He's always there with a smile or a joke. His staff is incredible. They've never made me feel like I'm bothering them when I call. He does insist that this surgery relies on teamwork and he vocally insists on you keeping your end of the bargain. He never balked when I asked about risks or mortalities or anything. He's very honest about the whole process. When someone asks about my surgery, I pull out his business card and start rambling. He's the best!

Describe your behavioral and emotional battle with weight control before learning about bariatric surgery.
I wasn't a huge, constant eater. I was more of the skip breakfast, skip lunch and huge dinner type. I couldn't understand why I kept gaining. Food and I have always had a love/hate relationship.

    Cindi, You have been an inspiration to all of the Maysters. I think that by your posts that you've shared, you have one of the most hectic schedules of us all. I'm glad everything worked out for you. I know this is late, but it does not mean that I did not have you in my thoughts and prayers. Have a great recovery and let the melting begin. John

Halloween, Losing again and an ER visit
posted 10/24/08 3:02 am
Halloween is my favorite time of the year.  Sure, I LOVE decorating for Christmas, but Halloween rules!  I had a battle online yesterday with a very religious friend.  He sees it as a time to worship Satan.  Okay, I realize that's the origins but oh how it's evolved.  To me, Halloween is a time for fun.  But, more importantly, it's a time to be anything you want to be. Check out Halloween Adventure or any online costume store.  The possibilities are endless!

I wanted to be a sexy Senorita but the costume was sold out everywhere.  So, I settled for a gorgeous costume that includes go-go boots.  Now, I was born in 1965 so go-go boots were a part of my life.  I loved them!  But, I also had to pray to get them zipped to the top even as a young child.  I ordered a pair of go-go boots online and they'll be here Monday.  I can't wait!  Hopefully, with one swift zip, my go-go boots will be the icing on this WLS cake. :)

My best friend and biz partner, Susie, and I have been dressing up every day and meeting at Cracker Barrel for either breakfast or lunch.  Wednesday we were our business clowns.  Yesterday I was a sexy witch (Britt's costume from 2 or 3 years ago!) and she was Amy Winehouse.  I'll post pics tonight.  I'm not sure what I'll be today.  But, how can Halloween just be one day?  To me that stinks!

Last night I ended up in the ER.  We kinda thought it was my appendix but the ultrasound was fine.  Liver looks great, no gall stones left over from the 1989 removal.  I'm still in pain though I'm home.  The ER doc suggested a gastroenterologist.  So, I have to call Dr. Iqbal and go through him for this adventure.  I was hoping it was the stress from my class reunion planning.  We shall see.

But, I'm now firmly in the 130s!  I've been here about 2 weeks.  I thought I'd never see it again.  I've bounced from 138 to 141 for months.  This morning I was 137.4.  Have I said lately how much I love my WLS???

Have a terrific weekend!
