06:53 pm - New to community
Hi, y'all. I am new to the community (just joined last night).

I am considering WLS (leaning toward the sleeve but keeping my options open) because I weigh 348 lbs at 5'8" and I've tried and tried to lose weight and just don't seem to be able to. I've changed my diet, I've exercised, and I might lose 10 lbs or so, but it doesn't stay gone. I have no aspirations to be model-skinny, but I would love for the number on the scale start with a 1 and the number in the dressing room to be under 20. (Right now I wear a US 24-26.)

I'm going to an information seminar about WLS at a local hospital on Tuesday the 13th, so we'll see if they'll take my insurance and if this is even possible for me.

Right now, I'm just checking things out.

Thanks to the mods for creating and maintaining this community.

Good luck to you!
I had my WLS 3 weeks ago. It took me almost 2 years to loose 10% of my body weight to be considered and approved for a surgery, but it was a great journey!

Welcome to the community. I had my surgery (vsg) 4 months ago, and have lost 65 lbs since then, 83 lbs since I started my pre-op diet on March 25th. Surgery was the best thing I have ever done. I feel so much better and know I would've never been able to lose the weight had I not been sleeved. You have to do what is best for you, regardless of if it is surgical or not. =)
