I do have an update about WLS. I saw my surgeon a week ago Friday. I have a date for August if I can lose 35kg/77lbs by then. I’ve already lost 5 kilos, so I am well on my way. Don’t know if I will make it, but have got to try. I’m doing low carb as that is the only way I get results. Im a bit nervous, but not really scared. The sleeve gastrectomy is a fairly straight forward and easy procedure. It’s the second half when they redue my insides to a duodenal switch that I have to worry about. A naive part of me thinks the sleeve will be enough. I mean if I could just get down to 250lbs, my life would be brilliant and I would be able to do so much more. I have heard experiences of people not losing much with a sleeve, but also know someone who was close to my size who has lost loads with a sleeve….so I just have to hope it works the same for me.
Oh yeah and I have been diagnosed as a type II diabetic now. Low carb seems to be good for my blood sugar as well…so it’s a win-win situation I suppose.
