Another Delay, blah, blah, blah
Dec 06, 2016
Will this surgery ever really happen?
It's been three years of waiting, (Canada, you know) and then I was told January.
When I called for a date, I was told that it will actually be April. I'm getting older by the minute people...
I am trying to hang in there and use this extra time wisely by continuing to lose weight and apply more healthy lifestyle changes but it's really getting old.
Pray for me!
Down 32 lbs.
Nov 10, 2016
I'm so grateful to be down 32 lbs. Five more pounds to Onderland which is my new goal. I'd like to be there before my 3 week liquid diet starts in late December. I'm so looking forward to my surgery in January, I just have to stay the course until I get there!
Down to a Size X
Oct 28, 2016
Shopping at Penningtons was great today. Since all of my size 4x pants and skirts now literally fall off of me, I tried on a 2x thinking it would be too small but to my delight I actually fit into an x. It's been 20 years since I fit into that size.
I'm down from a 5x on top to a 4x, wish it was a bit more balanced as I look a bit like a chicken but it will happen in time.
That was a nice nsv and I'm going to enjoy it for a while!
Met with Surgeon Today
Oct 06, 2016
This morning, I finally met with my surgeon. She was very nice and I really enjoyed meeting her.
Now for more waiting... That's been the hardest part of this entire process. Hopefully, she will be in touch soon with a surgery date!
Thanks for all of your support OH. I could not have made it through this without you!
Finally Meeting My Surgeon!
Sep 15, 2016
I'm so happy I could cry. After waiting for 2.5 years, I will finally be meeting with my surgeon in 3 weeks.
That's the last step before getting my vsg surgery. Hopefully it will happen before Christmas.
Thank you all for supporting me in making it to this point.
Down 22 lbs.
Sep 03, 2016
I'm down 22 lbs. since March and still waiting for my surgery date.
It's been 2.5 years already and it's pretty demoralizing but I am continuing to make progress.
I'm feeling kind of down. Any support or encouragement would be greatly appreciated.
I Lost My First 3 lbs.
Mar 16, 2016
Since I found out that my health is really poor - kidney disease, prediabetes, high blood pressure, high cholesteral and sleep apnea, I decided to make some changes. It's been a couple of weeks since I gave up diet pepsi, salt and chocolate and I've already lost three lbs. I haven't been actively trying to lose weight but am making healthier choices and eating less. Also, drinking more water.
It's been over 2 years that I've weighed 237 and it's great to see a lower number on the scale. At 234 my next goal is to get under 230. I will do this. I want to be 200 lbs. by my surgery date and I'm confident that I can do it.
And so my journey begins...

Hello. It's my first time posting although I have been following this site for months on a daily basis and I'm extremely grateful for you all. I live in British Columbia, Canada and have been waiting for my WLS for well over a year. It will likely be another year of waiting, so I'm trying to gather the strength, knowledge and support that I'll need to be successful. Thank you for being here!
