My 1st question is: Your thoughts and personal experience with Medifast? Looking forward for any answer or 2. Another quick question... Hi.

I am a 35 yr old mother of five kids. I am wanting to lose at least 150 lbs. I have been overweight most of my life and am so tired of being "fat" I am sick and tired of not being able to put my own socks and shoes on, or sit at a booth, or go on rides with my kids. I have been researching bypass.

Surgery.

For 3 months and finally decided to take the plunge and do it. I am excited and scared. I have completed almost all of the requirements such as my physical, psych eval, etc. My insurance company is requiring 6 months with a pt and nutritionist so my.

Surgery.

Is sometime in May. I am looking forward to this date and am so grateful to have a great support system and a wonderful husband..

I was initially going to go with the lapband but decided against it for many reasons but ultimately because I dont want a foreign object in me for the rest of my life. I have decided on the Roux en-Y. So, all advice,opinions, personal experiences are all welcome!.

Welcome!!!!!!!!!!!!.

I too am tired of being sick and tired of being sick and tired so I also decided to have the RNY procedure. Started this process in September and have to complete 6 months of nutrition.

Counseling.

So I am hoping for.

Surgery.

In March or April. This 6 months gave me time to become decaffeinated. This was very hard for me because I used to drink 2-3 cups every morning, including weekends. If I didnt have my.

Coffee.

, I got an headache. I also have been trying different proteins, cutting down on sugar, and preparing myself mentally on the new lifestyle that is coming soon. The six months will go by fast if you keep busy preparing yourself for life after.

Surgery.

And gaining as much information as possible. I have a few.

Books.

I am.

Reading.

And planning to go back to.

School.

To be a registered dietitian specializing in bariatrics. My hospital does not have a dedicated dietitian for their weight loss center so I figure I could make a position for myself. And who better to do the job than someone who has been through the process..

You are on the road to a better you!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!.

Welcome. Jerry here. 14 months post-op. Best decision I ever made. But it has certainly not been easy..

How does your family feel about your decision? Do they understand what the coming change means for them (at least for the ones old enough to understand)?..

Welcome Wendy!.

I also had to do the 6 months of pre-op counceling (11 months from start to finish). I think it really helps in the transition from being a pre-op fatty to a post-op healthy machine. You're going to learn so much in the upcoming months it will make your head spin. But it's going to prepare you for your new life..

Take notes, have an open mind and wait for the time to fly by. You're going to learn a lot about yourself. Some good, some bad, some that will piss you off. But mostly, you'll learn that you're worth so much more than you know..

You deserve this!..
