Hey precious87!! That's awesome 😃 crossing my fingers it gets approved for you!! I have received my letter of approval from DHS and have it in an express post envelope with my withdrawal application to my super fund at the minute. Going to post it today 😊 have an appointment with my surgeon next wednesday to discuss results of my Gastroscopy and book surgery/dietician/exercise physiologist etc... Can't wait!!

That's great news Sarah!
 
I hope things keep going well for you :-)  I have my surgeons appointment on Monday and I am so excited,,,I am hoping to book my surgery for at the latest 6 weeks from that appointment to give me time to get the super stuff sorted - all I all though, pending the outcome of my super release application I wont be far behind you!
 
 
Looking forward to sharing this journey with you :-)
 
Onwards and upwards!!

Hey MissSarahT,

Just wanting to wish you luck! I think I will be just as excited as you when its my turn! haven't got a surgery date yet my have my surgeons appointment in 2 weeks and Im excited about that haha.

If you don't mind me asking...could I ask what your current weight is? I only ask as you look like a similar weight to me in your picture and I have been worried that because I am not overly obese and do not have as much weight to lose as some patients that I will be rejected for surgery...I would also love to stay up to date with your journey :-)

All the best for your surgery!


Hi Precious87!!

If 87 is ur birth yr we are of similar age too!! Im an 86 baby, 28yrs old :) So excited for you that ur committing to changing ur life also!! 

Looks can be decieving haha (ive just learnt how to dress to cover my size well over the years) lol my starting weight was 116kgs after 2weeks on opti im down to 108kgs :) 

If you dont mind me asking, what is your starting weight? And whats ur goal if u have one in mind? Where are you from? Im in Brisbane :))

Good luck on ur appointment u will so excited to get it all started & super motivated too! X

Yep, I am an 87' baby :-)  haha yes, I think I have learnt to dress for my size aswell! I carry my weight in my thighs, hips and bum so maxi dresses all the way for me! haha. I can absolutely not wait for the day where I don't have to wear a maxi dress just because its the only thing I feel comfortable in! I am a little lighter than you but not by much...my current weight is around 96kgs and I am 167cm...that's why I am worried what the surgeon will say in regards to surgery as my BMA doesn't quite reach the over 35 mark...but because I have a family history or obesity related issues my GP in confident that I will be given the go ahead so fingers crossed! My ultimate goal weight wise would definitely be around the low 60's..I feel like that's a good weight where if you go on a holiday or something and gain a kilo or two its ok you know? but I have never been in the 60's or low 70's in my life apart from when I was a kid so I honestly don't know how I will look and feel if and when I get to that point.  Dress sixe wise I would love to be a 10!  I think mostly for me the biggest thing is feeling comfortable in what I wear and how I look...I want to be able to pick out an outfit and put it on and away we go...not have a meltdown just trying to find something to wear just to go and feed my horses haha! I live in a central qld mining town but will be having surgery in Brisbane with Dr. O'Rourke at the Wesley :-)
