Hello everyone, I'm a newbie :)

Hey there, my name is Jenny and I've recently joined this site to get some insight and support while going through this journey (that has just started btw) I'm pre-weight loss surgery, don't even have it scheduled yet BUT am in the prior authorization phase of things and starting my 6 month documented diet for insurance purposes. I'm finding that I'm having a difficult time even getting started on the diet because of the holidays. It's almost like a crutch, ok, well I'll wait until after the holidays (we've all done it I'm sure)
So a little background on me. I'm 32 and have battled with weight my entire life. I was in weigh****chers at 7 years old, got sent to fat camp in cali when I was 11, tried every diet known to man, so I have finally decided that this surgery thing may be the way to go.
Currently I'm 4'11 at 240 pounds with bmi of 48.5! woowee! Anyone else here pre-op? Any recommendations are welcomed. I look forward to meeting you guys. Thx for reading my novel lol

Hi and welcome!
This thread isn't very busy sadly however; if you know what surgery you will be having, head over to that forum. They are a lot more active.
I'm in AZ as well.
Good luck to you!
