And thank everyone that posts here, I was a lurker forever.  My name is Robert, however I go by Bill, I am 151 pounds overweight and have tried many many times to loose it but have not had luck.  So my next step was WLS I am a bit scared but excited at the same time.

I finally made my appointment for my consultation and I have a tentative surgery date of 12/5/2012, pending all peliminary tests, and insurance approval.
