I am glad I am finally am doing this surgery, I have been researching this for about a year but have been wanting it longer, my Dr is Dr.Iannace, I feel very comfortable with him, he made me make the right decission instead of the wrong, my tenative date for surgery is July 20th, Toby said 80% that she can get me in sooner which I really hope she can, I am 5'5 1/2" at 229.1 pounds my highest ever, I want it all gone, I will be happy and even happier shopping for clothes that show me off istead of hiding me. I am so excited but a bit nervous right now.

Well today I had my nutritional evaluation, and that went very well, she said I did know alot of what I should be doing and that she thinks that I'll do well after surgery, which made me feel great, so after I went in the back with a nurse, and she weighed me and I gained weight now I am up to 301.2, my heighest ever, I am so happy that I'll be getting this surgery, I also found out at the dr's office that the Insurance Approved the Surgery YAY! I am full of joy, and I finally told my father about it, he is supportive which is great, and I also told my grandmother, and she was supportive about it also. all I have to do now is get the tests done on june 28th and get medical clearance from my dr and then the other test done 2 days before surgery, I also went to GNC today, and got everything I need, they are so much better the target and anyother place, they know there stuff and very helpfull, I had a really cute guy named Stan helped me and he asked if it was for the surgery I said yes and he sugested the best formulas for me and I took his adivce for my stand point not really knowing anything about vitamins or protein mixes so hopefully it will work, he also told me to come back if i need anything else and they will help my needs and go one on one and help which I thought was great, I can't wait for July 20th to come, well I should get in bed its getting late, i'll update when I have a chance, take care everyone

well finally I had my pre op testing and it went very well,the hospital is gorgous, I can't wait to have my surgery on July 20th, Monday July 3rd I go to get medical clearance for the surgery, its going by so fast, and I have to thank my angel Deidre she has been there this whole time helping me out and answering questions, I can't wait to finally meet her on the 12th. well its getting late must go to bed have to work the weekend
