Biggest hurdle to overcome in weightloss: Getting up my nerve to make an appointment to discuss the surgery and making up my mind to do it.
Following any specific plan: Have consultation appointment with bariatric surgeon on 7/17/03. Hopefully it will not take long to get approved by my insurance and get a surgery date.
What is different this time in your weight loss efforts than in the past: I want to do it for my health rather than because I want to look better. It now hurts me to walk any distance and I use to love to walk. I want to be able to again.
Anything else you would like to share with us: I am a very friendly person and ask a LOT of questions. Hope to get to know some nice people here and hope I don't run anybody off by asking too many questions! LOL!
