Congratulations on your decision and welcome to the site. As you have probably already noticed, it is a great source of info and a fantastic support site to have beyond what you have at home due to the fact that everyone in here understands what it's like to be big in the first place (which some of our families and friends do not) and many are sleeved and have lived the experiences you will be going through in recovery. I found the reassurance that things I was going through was normal and the food ideas, tips and strategies to be invaluable. Your date is fast approaching so you will soon be on your way.

Hi all, I have been looking at this site for a while to decide if a sleeve is the right thing for me and then going through the process of getting funding via super,talk about jumping through hoops! funding has now been sorted and i have a surgery date for the 28th of March. Optifast starts tomorrow so it's getting very real now.
