Hi all,

I received a call from Erin Dr. Boisvert Admin support and she asked if I could come in to meet with him this coming week. I'm so full of nerves and excitement. I've had a lot of people criticize me about my choice to do this. I'm very tall for a woman 6'1 so I hold my weigh well but I'm almost touching 300 pounds. I just hope that I get approved for the surgery. It's been a long journey since I got the first call end of MAY.

Hello fellow tall lady! I had the surgery at 336. I was 6'2" but with back issues I've shrunk an inch.

some people just like to criticize something esp something they don't get or understand.

good luck on the appointment!

I can?t control everything but I can control what I put in my body.

I did not discuss with anyone except my husband and immediate family, so did not get much feedback. Most people whose lives would be very improved with weight loss surgery will never get it. Some can't afford it and others don't get it because of other people talking them out of it. Do what you want to do and don't let others influence your decision to make life better for you.
