Today is day 1 of 21. I had vanilla with cinnamon this morning, it wasn't great and I only got about 3/4 in.
For lunch I'll add ice and mix the two flavours. Everyone tells me to try adding coffee but I hate the taste so I'm trying to invent so
I had met the surgeon yoday to get the go-ahead for surgery and to purchase my Optifast.
And of course to get my surgery date... October 11. AHHH! ðŸ˜³ðŸ˜®ðŸ˜
I was a little freaked but the shock is wearing off and excitement is creepi
I just met with the bariatric internist. In my program, he is the one who recommends clearance for surgery to the surgeon.
I passed, and he confirmed that VSG is my best option because of medications I take/may need in future.

I've lost just 9 lbs

Now that the scary part is dealt with, I am worried about my bariatric candidacy.
I just met the surgeon a week and a half ago.
I met with Dr. Klein at Humber River today and am beyond excited to say that I am now a patient of their bariatric program!

After a 7.5 month wait I will finally be meeting with a surgeon at Humber River in two weeks. I'm beyond excited, but also worried because I haven't lost any weight in those 7.5 months.
I feel like a failure from the get-go. I fell into the foo
I am seven months into my wait for my first appointment at Humber.
I have multiple sclerosis, and am about to start a new treatment to stave off further progression of the disease. The treatment is a daily pill, and I have been going crazy try
This is my first-ever post on Obesityhelp, wooh!
I attended orientation at Humber River on August 19 and was told I could expect my first appointment - with a dietician, I believe - to take place in about 2 months.
